Paddle the "River of Grizzlies" on this exciting rafting expedition on the Babine River in BC. Nestled in the heart of British Columbia the Babine River Corridor Provincial Park hides one of the best kept jewels BC has to offer. This classic Northern expedition delivers six days of spectacular whitewater in some of the most impressive canyons known. The scenery has a spectacular "up close and personal" feel as the river is smaller, and around every bend is a new adventure.
Often referred to as "the river of grizzlies", the Babine River is considered one of the last unspoiled and pristine rivers in British Columbia. An easy and constant current carries us along, interspersed with exciting class III and IV rapids. The Babine is very narrow and intimate; in spots, you squeeze through dramatic canyons little more than eight feet wide.
The Babine River plays host to a steelhead and Pacific salmon-spawning season every year and no one could be more pleased than the migratory population of over 100 grizzlies, often in plain view. You may observe them while cruising past in a raft … at a comfy distance. Hundreds of bald eagles, also attracted by the great fishing, can be easily spotted.
In addition to the river’s natural beauty, you will discover a deeply rooted heritage of native culture. The group will visit abandoned and occupied villages of the Gitksan People, housing some of the largest, most visually splendid totems ever created.
