British Columbia - Vancouver Rafting 

Nestled close to the Washington state and the U.S.-Canada border, British Columbia offers world-class whitewater rafting on the most exciting rivers in Canada. The Nahatlatch river features 37 rapids in just 8 miles of river! The Nahatlatch is a rarity among rivers due to its super-continuous whitewater. Kayakers and rafting guests come from around the world to paddle this destination. These Canada rafting trips range from Class 1 scenic float trips to adrenaline pumpine class 5 whitewater action.

Due to its ideal location, this rafting resort destination receives 300 blue-sky days a year and records average summer highs of 85 degrees! British Columbia is the perfect retreat for white water rafting trips and outdoor adventure vacations.

Length: 12 km, 4-5 hrs Dates: May to September Times: 10 am or 2:30 pm Nahatlatch whitewater rafting. Our most popular and premier run! The upper Nahatlatch is simply the best whitewater rafting trip in southwest BC! REO conducted the first-ever Nahatlatch raft descent in 1982 and we continue our long tradition of excellence today. Our Nahatlatch trips are rated one of the best adventure travel values in Canada! What makes the Nahatlatch so addictive and perfect for rafting is the near-continuous, rapid-fire white water. The Classic section features 25 rapids over a 10 km (6 mile) stretch and an average gradient of 85 feet per mile. The Nahatlatch Classic is far more exciting than other rivers near Vancouver or Whistler. In fact, few rivers in North America offer such continuous action yet are still suitable for first-time rafters. July and August are favorite months with guests as the water warms and the river level drops, making the river much more technical. July and August are also the best months for surfing waves and holes. The two Class 4+ rapids on the Nahatlatch Classic, Rose Garden and Meatgrinder, are always optional (we provide a bus shuttle around the rapids)
