Banff National Park Canoe, Kayak, and SUP Rentals
The lakes and rivers of Banff and Lake Louise are some of the most pristine and picturesque you will ever see. You can explore them by canoe, kayak or stand up paddleboard (SUP). Rentals are available through the Banff Canoe Club, the Adventure Hub, Bow Valley SUP, Lake Minnewanka Boat Rentals and Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise canoe docks (just canoes). You can purchase your own gear at Atmosphere in Banff.
Self-certification permits are required to paddle on any water body in Banff National Park. Permits are available online or at multiple locations throughout the park. Visit Parks Canada for more information.
