Full description
Your experience begins at the local partner's day lodge, conveniently located on the TransCanada Highway. After a warm welcome, your crew distributes top-of-the-line rafting gear (a wet suit, wet suit booties, polar fleece sweaters, spray jackets, life jackets, and helmets). In the comfort of heated change rooms, change into the provided gear before taking a quick shuttle to the "put-in" (starting point), where you receive your extensive safety briefing before jumping in the river.

Throughout your trip, rapids such as Hopi's Hole, Cable Car, Table Saw, and the famous Portage and Shotgun will be rafted. Prepare to hold on and get wet, enjoying the canyon environment and hoping for a glimpse of a mountain goat, wolf, or bear. Following your trip, another quick shuttle returns you back to the warmth of the base.

Once changed back into dry and comfortable land clothes, enjoy fresh baked goodies, seasonal fruit and a selection of hot and cold beverages. You can finally stop by the gift shop for a souvenir to take back home.
