Arrival at the Blue Grouse Country Inn at 9:30am PDT. After meeting your guide we drive to Green Mountain Viewing tower overlooking the southern part of Wells Gray Park. We continue on to visit Dawson Falls, also nick named "Little Niagara" and then drive to Clearwater Lake. There our guide will give us a detailed introduction into paddling techniques and environmental ethics before we paddle our canoes for approx. 3 hours to a beautiful setting, where we will set up our wilderness camp for two days.
Today we explore Clearwater Lake, paddling with our canoes while enjoying some outdoor fishing and the local British Columbia wildlife. An approximately 1 hour adventure hike to Eagle’s View presents another chance to see wildlife and to enjoy a beautiful vista over Clearwater Lake. Second night at our outdoor camp ends our guided tour for the day.
After a relaxing breakfast we paddle back to the canoe launch and put away our canoes and paddle gear. After stopping at Bailey's Chute where you can see the salmon jumping in August we visit majestic Helmcken Falls (2.5 times the height of Niagara Falls) and admire the powerful waters plunging into the impressive lava canyon. Return to the Blue Grouse Country Inn when we arrive at approx. 04.30 p.m.
