We came across another hidden gem in the area around Vagabond Lodge and Golden BC. It is a canoe and kayak rental company called Columbia Wetlands Adventures. They are based on the Columbia River about 20 minutes south on Hiway 95. And wow...what a spot. 6 of us went out for the day and rented 3 canoes and were out for about 3 hours. Because of the high water, the owners marked out a way for us to cut across the small lakes and mashes formed and did a big loop. At one point we were in a big lake and in the middle is a raft which we tied up to and had a picnic and a swim. The company also does a wildlife viewing float trip. We have had some guests who have done the trip and they love it. All sorts of wildlife along the river. Here are some photos. Amazing spot with suspension bridge and little floating walkways through the forest and small marshes. Disneyland couldn't do it much better. Here is my video from our trip with some of your friends here at Kicking Horse Resort.
Ken along with his wife Lori are the owners and operators of Vagabond Lodge at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort.
