Whitewater rafting tours on the Sulphur and Sheep Rivers in the Rocky Mountains


Choose from two different rivers on these exciting whitewater rafting trips in the Rocky Mountains. The Sulphur and Sheep Rivers are home to some spectacular whitewater rafting.  Near the town of Grande Cache, adjacent to the Willmore Wilderness Park you will find one of the last unknown spots in the Rocky Mountains for whitewater rafting.  The Sulphur and Sheep River offer the whitewater rafting enthusiast everything they are looking for in a setting that is simply amazing.

The Sulphur River (Class II-III+) is a small canyon river sourcing from sulphur springs in Willmore Wilderness Park.  The canyon is known for its breathtaking beauty.  In high water it's an exciting run with good rapids.  In lower water the Sulphur River is sporty and technical with many holes and ledges to get around.    

Sheep Creek is a medium volume rain and snow fed creek, very steep and very fast.  Ledges, squeezes and big nasty hole - you will see them all.  This one is Class III-IV.
