Just finished the circuit in 6 days! It was fantastic! Going in August is a trade off - busier than other months but weather was perfect and no mosquitoes! Really recommend going to really disconnect from regular life and connect with nature and your family. Great experience!

I did the circuit in 8 days, could have done it in 6 but 8 was fine. We had a small group of 3 - one canoe and one kayak. First 1/2 of the circuit it was quite cool (13 C the high one day) and rainy off and on. So make sure you have proper gear, my goretex gear... More

I did this twice as a young teen, now I'm going back next year. From memory it is an absolutely serene and detached trip, highly recommended.

My partner and I recently finished a 10 day canoe trip on Bowron Lakes with Sea to Sky Expeditions: http://seatoskyexpeditions.com/ The lakes were stunning, the paddling was fun and varied, and the guides, Tom and Casey, were fantastic. We briefly tossed up doing the trip independently but didn't want to carry camping gear around Canada so contacted Sea to Sky... More

If you are planning a trip to Bowren, go with a small local company that is so passionate about the outdoors - see Pathways Bowren Lakes. Words cannot express how fortunate we were to have Simon as our guide. His wealth of knowledge and passion for the outdoors spills over to every aspect of the trip. Not only is the... More

We caught fish almost every day, saw lots of wildlife including 2 cow moose. Finally the best part of the trip was we went... More

Just returned with my four sons from canoeing the Bowron Canoe Circuit. This is an awesome experience for individuals who appreciate a wilderness experience which offers a variety of beauty involving mountains, rivers, lakes and yes somewhat challenging portages. We stayed at Beckers Lodge and rented our canoes and kayaks from their operation. We would rate Beckers offering and service... More

Gorgeous scenery, amazing encounters with wildlife, heart-stopping waterfalls, fabulous guide (Simon Ankenman, Pathways Canada Tour Company), gorgeous campsites, wildflowers everywhere, few bugs. Fat-wheeled carts make the portages much easier than usual. Add in an afternoon at the fascinating historical site, Barkerville, just outside Wells, BC, which you have to pass anyway.

The Provincial Park provides non-stop beauty. The lakes are beautiful, the trails nicely maintained, the park staff friendly and the scenery is nothing short of stunning. The campsites are easy to locate and well maintained. There are some new shelter which provide a nice respite. The circuit is not difficult. Some effort is needed, especially when loading the canoes onto... More

My boyfriend has had the Bowron Lakes canoe circuit on his bucket list since he was a teenager, so we finally booked the trip. It was so cool! We had an amazing time, but we got extremely lucky with nice weather and very few people on the circuit, so we had our choice of campgrounds and lots of privacy. As... More
