06 Day Tweedsmuir Park Wilderness Canoe Tour
CBC#04 Tweedsmuir Provincial Park
Overview: Perched at 3,500 feet, on the eastern edge of Tweedsmuir Provincial Park, stretches a chain of lakes flowing into Turner Lake and ultimately over Hunlen Falls. Seven lakes connected by a stream are cradled between the Coastal Mountains on either side all are navigable by canoe. Arrive at Nimpo Lake, located near the frontier town of Anahim, British Columbia, some 250 air miles north of Vancouver, and 180 road miles west of Williams Lake. Stay overnight in one of our cabins at Nimpo to get prepared for your spectacular adventure. The next morning we fly by floatplane to the spectacular 'mountain outpost', just 20 minutes from Nimpo Lake. We'll set you down on Turner Lake following a scenic flight over Hunlen Falls. We extend our flightseeing tour over Monarch Mountain, a majestic peak that towers 11,590 feet (3,533 m) above sea level. It is a rugged centrepiece that presides over the icefields bordering the southern-most edge of Tweedsmuir Park. Monarch is just one of several highlights as we wing our way over deep mantles of snow and ice covering craggy rock stretching skyward eons old glaciers lay 'still', inching down hidden valleys here and there, a brilliant turquoise lake filled with small 'bergs will catch your eye. Once at Turner Lake, the park facility operator will welcome you dockside on the northwest side. If an emergency arises, here is a radiophone for your safety while you are at the Wilderness Camp. For the next days you stay overnight in rustic cabins at Turner Lake, located on a private sandy beach and equipped with wood stoves, firewood, 4 beds and foamies, tables and chairs.

Canoes: Mohawk canoes of durable royalex are available to rent, in three sizes 15' solo, 61 lbs (4.6m, 27.45kg); 16', 65 lbs (4.8m, 29.25kg); and 17', 69 lbs (5.2m, 31.05kg). Paddles and life jackets are included.

Camping: Lakeside sites are located on Turner, Junker, Widgeon and Kidney lakes; all are equipped with firepits, tent pads, firewood, benches and bear caches. Camping permits may also be purchased at Tweedsmuir Air Services' base on Nimpo Lake.

Cabins Two rustic cabins are available at Turner Lake. Located on a private sandy beach, equipped with wood stoves, firewood, 4 beds and foamies, tables and chairs... you'll appreciate the comfort when the weather turns cold or wet.

Lake and stream fishing: until the 1950s, there were no fish in the system due to Hunlen Falls. Ralph Edwards, of Lonesome Lake, saw to 'seeding the system' by packing up two spawning pairs of cutthroat trout from Lonesome Lake and releasing them into the Hunlen Valley waters. Over the years, these Cut-throut have flourished and spread in great numbers up and down the chain. The cutts make for great 'pan fryers', but we encourage you to keep only what you eat while in the park. The lakes are open year round, but streams are closed to fishing until July 1st. Fishing licences and supplies are available at our floatbase be sure you have your licence it's required! Light fishing gear - fly or spin - is recommended if you are planning to wet a line. Just go prepared!

Local hikes: numerous trails are cleared and marked just for you. Take a leisurely hike along the stream or to the bluffs overlooking Hunlen Falls. For more vigorous hikes, head to Panorama Ridge and the high alpine above Turner Lake with spectacular views of the surrounding backcountry.
