This Summer, Explore the Columbia River

Let our guides teach you the basics of canoeing and show you our favourite outdoor spots the Columbia River, British Columbia. 

The Columbia River (1,243 miles/2,000km) is the largest river in North America. 

It’s source is in the glaciers of the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia and it drains into the Pacific Ocean in Oregon, United States. 

Along the river, you will find the picture-postcard city of Revelstoke, BC. That is where your guided canoe tour will begin. 

In your tour, the scenic mountain views are guaranteed. You might even capture the glimpse of some of our local wildlife, such as brown and black bears, and birds, such as golden eagles

On a hot summer’s day, we can stop at a beach and you can cool off in the ice cold glacial water of the Columbia. 

No previous experience is necessary. 

Please call Amy on +1 (866) 929-3539 or e-mail info@www.flexpeditions.com for enquiries and further information.

Testimonials

Lake-Revelstoke-canoe-tour
Booked the canoe 4hr trip and was sceptical that it would be boring.... My sister and I were pleasantly surprised by the experience. It was not boring, it was relaxing and extremely enjoyable. Barry our guide was knowledgeable and easy to talk to. I would do this tour again and any other tours offered by flexpeditions because of the customized tour and Barry's commitment to make the experience enjoyable.

Lake Revelstoke Day Trip Tour

Best family canoe trip ever! We were taken care of so well. Our guide Barry was the best, he took care of our older family members so that I didn't have to worry about them at all on the water. It was so much fun to do something as a group and everything was planned out for us. Even though the weather was not cooperating it was still the best family day ever. Barry made it so easy you would never have known we had little to no experience in a canoe. Best ever. 5 star experience would recommend it to anyone.
