Powell Forest Canoe Route

Join us on a 6-day family canoe camping trip on the Powell Forest Canoe Route, on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia, Canada.  Our journey covers 32.2 km of paddling and 10.3 km of portaging on this classic West Coast canoeing adventure.

We paddle 9 lakes, get doused by rain, portage through some mossy old-growth forest, get down with the frogs, catch a couple fish, enjoy some back country cooking, make some art and talk canoeing tripping footwear.
