Riverside Rafting on Clearwater River in Wells Gray Park

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Meet your experienced guides in Wells Gray Park, and start the day by fitting wetsuits and learning the basics of safety and technique. Learn to paddle as a team—or opt for a seat where you don’t need to paddle—then board your raft to ride through the Clearwater River’s first rapid. Try out your skills on ‘The Wall’ and ‘Funnel Chute,’ technical sections where the whole raft pulls together to avoid underwater hazards.

    Continue downriver to ‘Hole-in-the-Wall’ and ‘Bear's Den,’ where surging high water has created unique features at the water’s edge. Now that you’ve practiced paddling technique, take on the most exciting waves of the trip in a thrilling lineup: experience standing and breaking waves in ‘Hawaii 5-0’, ‘Tsunami’ and ‘Buckaroo,’ and if you’re feeling adventurous, try taking a turn in the ‘Super Screamer Seat.’

    In spring and early summer, stretch your legs on a walk to Candle Creek Falls, where you can slip behind a waterfall and jump into a churning pool. In between the major rapids, cool off in the river, learning to time your breathing to the bottom of the waves. When water levels are high, challenge yourself to jump from a 25-foot (8-meter) cliff, then ride through the final wave train at Otter Stretch before arriving at the take out point, where you can change into dry clothes.

    Children must have at least 40kg weight to do Clearwater. But they offer also calmer tours on the north Thompson River..
