Ceyana Canoe Club


Ceyana volunteers organize trips ranging from local, easy paddles, to extended trips and whitewater excursions. We encourage early contact with the trip coordinator to ensure that a trip will not be cancelled for lack of interest, or be over subscribed. Sometimes, club trips are organized just a few days before departure as opportunities and interest dictate. Check the tripping calendar often and watch your email for new trips. 

Organize a Trip of YOUR OWN!

Ceyana is always looking for more people to organize trips. If you have a trip in mind, work with the Tripping Chair to have it added as an official club trip. You don't necessarily need to lead the on-water portion of the trip--the Tripping Chair can help you find someone to fill that role. 

All club trips must be approved by the club (usually by the Tripping Chair) and participants must be current members of the Ceyana Canoe Club. 

Trips Schedule

    • 18 Jul 2020
    • 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM (MDT)
    • Astotin Lake, Elk Island Nat. Park
    • 2

    Buffalo, warm sun, gentle breezes (most years), an hour or two cruise around the islands of Astotin Lake (Elk Island National Park), birding, laughing and telling lies.   Trip lead Tim, is suggesting he will still provide, but it will be store bought cupcakes this year... and hopefully only this year.

    Tim is suggesting:

    • 10 am meet, at the main Astotin Beach/Main Parking Lot
    • 10:30 am launch,
    • cake about 12:30 pm back on the beach at whatever table/shelter we can snag!

    Basic flatwater skills required.  Limited Club equipment may be available, check closer to the event date.

    • 07 Aug 2020
    • 5:00 PM (MDT)
    • 09 Aug 2020
    • 8:00 PM (MDT)
    • Bow River
    • 3

    This is one of the most scenic paddles, and maybe the best way to see the Bow Valley.   The plan will be to do day trips, with camping at Two Jack Lake Main campground loop 24 and adjoining.  Intermediate river skills are required, as the river all the way to Red Earth creek is fast, with fun riffles and significant rapids just east of Lake Louise, and at Red Earth Creek.  And for those a little newer to paddling there is easy paddling upstream of Banff into Vermillion lakes, and the other lakes in the area.

    • 04 Sep 2020
    • 5:00 PM (MDT)
    • 07 Sep 2020
    • 8:00 PM (MDT)
    • Kootenay River, Settlers Road Bridge to the White River Bridge
    • 18

     The Kootenay River below the National Park is often referred to as the weekend Nahanni.  It is a great tripping river, and requires good intermediate river skills... and river reading skills.  This late summer or fall trip will be a lower water levels and thus not too intimidating for those familiar with the Horburg/Devil's Elbow run on the North Saskatchewan, or the upper Red Deer.
