This trip is all paddling on big water, except for two portages. Canoes must stay along the shoreline to avoid waves and motorboat wakes. Sea kayaks are more versatile on these waters. Explore islands and interconnected lakes. Visit historic and colorful Kettle Falls Hotel, accessible only by water or air. Tour gold mines from a short-lived 1890s gold rush. See a major herring gull/cormorant nesting area. The fishing is world class for walleye, northern pike, smallmouth bass, and crappies. Campsites are plentiful, and camping is allowed off designated campsites.
