The Ultimate Adventure start off rafting the Upper Canyon of the river which is the calmest stretch. It’s beautiful and scenic and offer a few splashes to give you a sense of what’s to come. You then stop for a riverside BBQ lunch, before getting back in the raft to hit the whitewater.
The Middle Canyon is next and it offers class 2 – 4 rapids throughout it’s entire 13 km stretch. From the take out of the Middle Canyon, the helicopter flies in to pick you up. It flies you over an un-raftable stretch of the river before dropping you off at the put in for the Lower Canyon. From here you raft another 12+ km of amazing class 3 and 4 rapids before finishing with a float through the town of Golden, BC
You’ll be rafting some of the best whitewater in Canada and flying in a helicopter to get there – doesn’t get cooler than that!
