The backcountry of the Nicola Valley provides the serenity and scenery every paddler craves. There are an endless number of lakes to canoe if one has no problem driving long rough gravel roads deeper into the wilderness. Many wilderness lakes come with bare-bone wilderness campsites. And many canoe and kayak destination lakes are close to each other for multi lake paddle days.
