Murtle Lake is the largest canoe and kayak only lake in North America. It’s located in Wells Gray Provincial Park about 30km west of Blue River, BC. It’s a very popular paddle destination even for people as far away as Europe. It is the dream trip of many from Germany and Switzerland and we met people from BC, Alberta, Washington and Oregon as well. The NWV had attempted to run a trip to Murtle in 2017 but we decided the wild fires in BC were best avoided so we made plans to try again for 2018.
