Full description
Enjoy a trip through the magnificent West Glacial canyon. This trip is ideal for those who want to enjoy a relaxing trip and take in some breath-taking scenery. For family rafting the West is the best. The West Glacial River is classed 2-3. The trip starts and ends in the onsite boathouse. The friendly and professional guide will provide you with all of the equipment needed for tackling famous glacial rivers. The guides will provide wetsuits, dry tops, helmets, buoyancy aids /life jackets, and rafting booties. All you need to bring is your swimsuit, a warm long sleeve fleece, and a towel. Take a 20 minute drive towards the West Glacial river. Your trip leader will give a full safety briefing. You will then be divided into crews and assigned a boat and most of all your guide. Once on the river you will enter the canyon with its high walls and amazing geology. Along the way you may stop for a unique hot chocolate and for some cliff jumping for the brave ones. The bus will be waiting for the short drive back to the base where the hot tubs await. The trip time is around 3 hours.
