ISLAND RIVERS


This is an organization of some of the rivers on Vancouver Island. For write-ups and directions check out BC-WW, It is an amazing site and has lots of info. The idea with this organization of runs is to help when planning a trip to a certain area/zone. Remember when looking at some of these rivers, that there is deep, remote canyons. There can be changes/wood/rockslides. Check out some of the descriptions, some rivers dont get paddled very often. Be Prepared. Also enjoy the Island and all it has to offer. We would like to hear of your adventures, you can get in touch through our contact form.
