Multi day whitewater rafting expedition on the Chilcotin and Fraser Rivers in central BC


Load some gear, rafts and a dory with all the camping luxuries and fine cuisine you could want and join our guides for 4 days of whitewater rafting in British Columbia’s heartland on the Chilcotin and Fraser Rivers.

You will experience ever changing environments and walk in the footsteps of the First Nations and explorers alike while the aqua blue Chilcotin River cuts its way through sagebrush cowboy country. The wildlife spotting is superb. You experience incredible sightings of Black Bear, Dear, Bald Eagle and the worlds largest protected herd of California Bighorn Sheep. 

The indulgent camp hospitality will spoil you constantly and after the first taste of this trip you won’t want to go home… guaranteed! The days are quite laid back and relaxed on this Chilcotin River trip. We don’t have to get you up a dawn and push all day (unless of course you want to!). Its all about relaxing, enjoying the environment and experiencing the thrills the river offers around the next bend!

From its source high upon the Chilcotin Plateau in the interior of British Columbia runs a River that is rich in cowboy history, gold rush folklore, native culture, and flows through one of the most beautiful areas in all of Canada. Mixed grasslands and forests, towering canyons, and abundant wildlife make this desert area an adventure seekers paradise. This is the backdrop for this 4 day whitewater dory trip. The dory is a unique water craft first used by the Portuguese as a fishing boat. With sharp upended bow and stern, this maneuverable boat is able to slice through the biggest whitewater and come out the bottom of the rapid almost dry. Because they are a rigid hulled boat they buck and kick with every little wave they encounter making them ride rapids like no other river boat can.

In between rapids there is time to glance up as you quietly drift by towering canyons and sandstone hoodoos that have been carved by wind and water over centuries. On day three as we move downstream towards Farwell Canyon, our first class IV rapid, we have time to pull over and explore the old Farwell homestead along with an outstanding hike to giant sand dunes along the north side of the River. During salmon season witness First Nations catching and drying salmon as their ancestors have done for 1000’s of years in this area. We are now entering Gang Ranch country, Canada’s second largest active cattle ranch and one of the biggest in North America. Watch out for prickly pear cactus because this truly is a desert environment and one of the driest and hottest places in all of Canada.

On day four we enter Big John Canyon and the most consistent piece of Whitewater on the trip. 1000 foot cliffs on either side and solid class III Whitewater in a dory make this one of the most unique river experiences available anywhere. As we drift out of the bottom of the canyon we enter the Fraser River and the world famous Fraser Canyon. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife as we drift past “Sheep Range Provincial Park” and North America’s largest protected herd of California Bighorn Sheep.

This whitewater rafting adventure ends on the historical Fraser River. This trip is the perfect combination of scenery, wildlife, culture, lifestyle and whitewater!

GUIDE INFORMATION

This trip hires only the most experienced guides available who love making their living off the river because they are simply “TRUE RIVER PEOPLE”. They have an in house guide-training program that is second to none in this industry. They are firm believers in safety kayakers and catarafts, and you will quite often see several of them buzzing around the boats if water levels warrant it. They look for the most qualified guides from across Canada and around the world.

They have sound emergency procedures in place and practice them regularly. All trips have good communication with our base camp and shuttle bus in the form of two-way radios, cell phones, or satellite phones.

At the end of each day there is ample opportunity to hike and explore the area. Stunning vistas can be had by simply climbing the hills behind camp-the higher you go the better the view. Sit around the campfire after dinner each night and share stories or just look up at the incredible collection of stars in the Chilcotin sky.
