Powell Forest Canoe Circuit Trip Overview
Multi-day canoe trips in Canada are a perfect way to get deep into the wilderness while enjoying peaceful and relaxing settings. Canoe across crystal clear lakes, surrounded by steep, snow capped mountains and lush forest. Camp on scenic shorelines with a roaring campfire while watching the sun set over distant peaks.
Powell River is a town located on the Sunshine Coast in BC. This area is well known for its beautiful canoeing, kayaking and hiking. There are many lakes in this area which form a perfect circuit for multi-day canoe trips. The Powell forest canoe circuit takes us 5 days, departing from, and returning to North Vancouver. We will take 2 ferry crossings which offer incredible views of the ocean and surrounding islands and mountains. If you’re lucky, you may spot a Whale or Orca!
The Powell Forest Canoe Circuit is approximately 57 km, covering 8 lakes split by 5 portages. A portage is a short hike where we must carry the canoe from one lake to the next. Canoes are lightweight and can be carried by 1 or 2 people. Portages range from 0.7 km to 2.8 km, and paddling stretches from 1 km to 28.5 km. Campsites are well equipped with pit toilets, picnic tables and fire pits.
This is the perfect setting to view wildlife. Common sightings include bald eagles, black bears, beavers and deer. The forests are laden with Cedar, Spruce and Fir trees, including some ancient old growth forests.
