The Columbia River that flows through Golden is one of the many gems we have in our backyard. Just the kayaking or canoeing is reason enough but the other day we went out for a couple hour trip from Nicholson(9 km south) and ending at the airport in Golden we saw at least 3 bald eagles, a heron and osprey. At times you can see bear and moose. Really a treat.
We have our own inflatable kayaks but if you are interested in joining me for a trip, Selkirk Sports here at Kicking Horse Resort has a couple for rent and they are super easy to inflate. The Columbia is a great place for kayaking for basically any level as there is no whitewater involved. The biggest challenge is sometimes going into the wind which makes it a lot more work than just floating with the currant.
Great way to see a different side of our area. Give us a call here at Vagabond 250 344 2622 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
