Ride the Rapids
Climb aboard, grab a paddle, focus and get ready for the biggest adrenaline rush of your life! When you’re out on the water at the mercy of the mighty Fraser River, that’s all there is — nothing else matters. The deafening roar of the water fills your ears as it carries you through its wake. Feel the icy spray as it hits you in your face and keeps you focused. On this river in the shadow of the magnificent Mount Robson, the only thing you need to think about is what’s around the next corner. The only thing you need to feel is alive.
Thrill of a Lifetime
Scream, shout or laugh hysterically — no one will hear you over the roar of the river. Besides your raft mates are doing the same thing. White-water rafting is nature’s water coaster. Turns, dips and boulders keep you on high alert. When you get back to shore, take a deep breath and decide if you want to go again. Ridge everything from Class I to wild Class III rapids. For even bigger thrills, give the Beaver River a go. It offers the only Class V rapids in the region. That means big, gnarly, technical rapids that are super fast. With more than seven named rapids on this run, it is considered a must-ride for adrenaline seekers.
Float Your Boat
Look around. This is the mighty Fraser River, the heart of this delicate ecosystem, that brings life and sustenance to all. When you are shouting with glee, take time to notice the birds of prey or a mamma bear and her cub drinking from the rivers’ edge. Inhale earthy scents as the wind flows through your hair on it’s way to the the deep woods along the river. When the river opens up you’ll see the Cariboo Mountains and the Canadian Rockies. Listen closely as your guides tell you about this place and its history. They’ll bring you back to a time when it was the only thing that mattered to the first settlers.
