Stand Up Paddle Boarding in Sun Peaks

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.
