Kayaking, SUP, Canoeing and Windsurfing on and Around Kootenay Lake
Nelson, Balfour and Kaslo are great bases to explore the area by canoe, windsurf, kayak or paddleboard, either on Kootenay Lake or the nearby Slocan River. Whether you’re an occasional paddler or seasoned professional, the region’s waterways are sure to delight.
Travellers can bring their own gear or join a guided tour with a local operator. Kaslo Adventure Centre, Kootenay Kayak Company and ROAM run a variety of tours: half-day paddle boat tours, two-day kayak camping excursions and week-long hiking and padding expeditions. Hellman Canoe and Kayak also has a well-stocked retail store and specializes in kayak, canoe and stand up paddle board (SUP) rentals all year round. Right at Lakeside Park through the summer months, the Nelson and District Community Complex rents kayaks and SUP boards by the hour.
Visitors at Kaslo can contact Kaslo Kayaking for tours, rentals and lessons on kayaks, canoes, SUP and windsurfers.
To float down the tributaries of Kootenay Lake go for an adventure with one of our rafting companies.
