It’s time to start planning! The province recently announced that booking for two of British Columbia’s most popular park adventures will open on October 1.

Beginning at 7 a.m. Pacific time, you can make your reservation to hike the scenic Berg Lake trail in Mount Robson Provincial Park or paddle the pristine Bowron Lake canoe circuit in Bowron Lake Provincial Park for the 2018 season through Discover Camping.


The Berg Lake trail is open year-round and can be reserved from June 17 to Sept. 17. The trail covers 23 kilometres and climbs 800 metres, offering scenic views of waterfalls, turquoise-coloured lakes as well as icebergs.

Plan Ahead

The Bowron Lake canoe circuit can be reserved from May 15 to Sept. 23. The entire circuit boasts 116 kilometres of paddling across 10 lakes in addition to several portages that are relatively flat. The entire trip takes from six to 10 days. The west side experience is also available, which is less than half of the circuit and takes two to four days to complete.

Advanced preparation is required for both the Berg Lake trail and Bowron Lake canoe circuit because of the type of backcountry experience involved. The limited facilities offered on these adventures ensure a true wilderness experience, so visitors need to be prepared and self-sufficient.
