10 Canadian Rivers to Float Your Troubles Away

River tubing is the ultimate summer activity. There is something inside each of us that craves navigating a winding river under the hot sun, acting like we are children again. It is also one of the best ways to experience nature and surrounding wildlife. Whether you are looking for an exhilarating ride or the ultimate lazy river, Canada is the perfect country to find it. Here are 10 rivers to float down, inner tube style, from coast to coast.

10. Kettle River, B.C

One of the favorite ways to spend a sunny day for locals here is to grab an inner tube and float from the Kettle River Provincial Park to Rock Creek. The journey takes about three to four hours and you must ensure you have a car parked on either end as there are no river operators here to shuttle you back. This float experience is full of sandy beaches to stop at and many unique swimming holes. If you do head out late in the season, the water will be at its lowest and you can expect to walk some of the river. There are both rapids, snags and still water along the river and it is recommended you are a good swimmer, or wear a life jacket at all times.
