Whitewater rafting adventures on the Thompson River in BC


Enjoy a ride down Class III-IV rapids on one of these white water trips on the Thompson River in central BC. Situated in one of the warmest climates in Canada, the Thompson is B.C.'s third largest river. The visually spectacular Black Canyon and the big, powerful rapids are features that only a river of this volume can produce. The Thompson is the ideal one or two day rafting adventure. Highlighted by the lower canyon with 27 exciting rapids, including the Jaw's of Death, Cutting Board and the Witch's Cauldron, the Thompson River is sure to awaken all your senses.

This is British Columbia's most popular whitewater rafting trip, and for good reason.  The Thompson River is located in the desert area of B.C.'s interior where you can almost always enjoy warm, sunny weather. This river combines big powerful rapids with deep quiet canyons and the warm desert climate of B.C.'s interior. A day on the Thompson will definitely be the highlight of your summer.

The spectacular two day adventure covers 80 km on the Thompson River from Ashcroft to Lytton. Trips depart every weekend from mid-July to mid-September taking full advantage of this region's hot and sunny summer weather. 

From Ashcroft to the private camp on "Fantasy Island" the Thompson boasts awe-inspiring scenery including the grandeur of Black Canyon's sheer lava walls. The upper stretches provide many playful rapids for those who wish to try one of the inflatable kayaks; always a highlight of the trip. You spend the night on Fantasy Island, a unique 5 acre island in the middle of the river. Here there is plenty of time to relax and set up camp while your guides prepare a fabulous gourmet barbeque, including special appetizers and fresh baked desserts. Following dinner spend an entertaining evening around the campfire under the starlit sky. 

After breakfast the next morning, we float through the small town of Spences Bridge, home to several herds of Big Horn sheep. Before lunch the rafts are unloaded and your gear is transported back to our Lytton base, making the rafts light and maneuverable to challenge the river's largest rapids. As the river descends to its eventual confluence with the Fraser River, the Thompson narrows and constricts into a deep towering canyon, producing large roller-coaster like waves, some as big as 8 feet. You run all the famous rapids, including the Frog, Devil's Kitchen, and the 18th Hole, finally arriving in Lytton; completing the perfect weekend.
