Moderate Adventure – Paddleboarding in Sun Peaks
Sun Peaks is an alpine village set in the heart of British Columbia, an outdoor adventurer’s dream with plenty of on and off-land activities on offer. We have two activities available, for the water babies enjoy a spot of standup paddleboarding, also known as supping. It’s a wonderful way to explore the calming lakes of Canada, observing wildlife at the water’s edge. For those keen to explore on two wheels opt for a mountain bike experience weaving in and out of forest and meadows.
