British Columbia Rafting Adventure Trip Overview

This scenic journey begins once we turn off the world renowned Sea to Sky highway and drive up the Squamish valley FSR. On a winding road you will thoroughly enjoy this drive through a hollow and lush coastal forest that feels rather enchanted, with views of the broken glaciers from the Ashlu Mountain range.

Our river journey begins at the Elaho – Squamish confluence and ends at the Ashlu bridge. With glacial water that is crystal clear and about 8 degrees Celsius (46 Fahrenheit), your senses will be heightened as we are submersed in this wilderness environment. As we float and paddle through the braids of the upper Squamish river we will be in awe of the surrounding vistas. With Broken glaciers over head and waterfalls around the corner there is always a view to satisfy. Along with the views, the chances of seeing bald eagles, or reeling in a trout are high. There are many options to camp on this river, gravel bars, beaches, forest groves, we have all the flexibility to do what we want when we want.

This river trip is ideal for anyone looking to experience the wild in a convenient and accessible location. No experience camping or paddling necessary, anyone can enjoy, relax and learn about the wilderness. Weather it's flora and fauna, making a fire or even a river side sauna, there are many ways to get creative in the river banks. Leave your emails and worries behind as this trip is beyond the reaches of cell service to ensure a truly relaxing and rejuvenating wilderness experience.

Camping accommodation is provided while on the trip.

Our tents are supplied by MSR and are lightweight and weatherproof. They are very roomy to give you the most comfortable camping experience. We can provide either 1, 2 or 3 man options, depending on the number of people in your group.

Please bring your own sleeping bag and sleeping pad/Thermarest. If you are unable to bring your own, please contact us and we can arrange a rental.

Additional Information

This area is known for being home to both black bears and grizzly bears. How ever, our guides are trained in safe bear protocols and procedures and have worked around bears for many years. With respect and diligence, bears are not an issue.

Since the Squamish is located in a very wet part of the province, rain storms can appear instantly so it is crucial that you bring adequate rain gear (no ponchos).

We will be doing a lot of the cooking on a propane stove, however, when possible we will cook on the camp fire. BC has been subject to some dry summers and bad fire seasons. As a result, there may be some weeks where a campfire ban is in effect.
