Boating, Canoeing and Rafting
Non-motorized watercraft are permitted on all lakes and rivers in Kootenay National Park. The Vermilion and Kootenay rivers present hazards, so only experienced paddlers should attempt them. Route descriptions are available at visitor centres. You may wish to contact the Kootenay National Park Visitor Centre for information on commercial canoeing and rafting operations on the Kootenay River.
