The Rivers

White water rafting is one of the most exciting and energetic activities you can do on holiday and Whistler offers everything you could want!

Whether you’re looking a softer, family fun trip or to get as wet as possible over big rapids next to stunning waterfalls and glaciers Whistler has it available for you.

 

Cheakamus River

A scenic float just south of Whistler with a few class 1 and 2 splashy rapids to have some fun on. Kids as young as 5 years old can enjoy this family friendly rafting adventure. It’s also suited for the older family members as you float along the river and take in the gorgeous scenery along the way.

 

Elaho River

The Elaho is the most exhilarating white water rafting adventure you can do located south of Whistler in Paradise Valley. After a pre safety talk you and your team of rafters will face the challenging class 3 & 4 rapids pounding through white water with short recovering floats between each set of rapids. You will need to allocate a full day for this trip and can extend your Elaho experience with a full BBQ lunch with Wedge Rafting or opt to go with Canadian Outback who will provide a light snack and a drink to keep your energy levels up.
