Lytton, River Rafting
Find more information about Lytton - River Rafting
Last weekend we headed into the Fraser Canyon for our Camping and White Water adventure. It was so hot all over BC we wanted to enjoy some cool down time for the weekend. So I went onto google and searched all about rafting in BC. There was alot of options and places to see. We had already been up to whistler this year so we decided on Rafting up in Lytton BC. There is 4 rafting resorts in Canyon Country British Columbia and 6 rivers to choose from. We rafted the Thompson River with a local company. It was an excellent experience, the resort we stayed at also had rock repelling, mountain biking, Frisbee golf and full resort amenities, We were also lucky we reserved early and we got to stay inside a Tee Pee for the weekend. Other interesting accommodations were also available. On Sunday we stopped at a few places on the return trip like Siska Native Art Museum, Tuckkwiowhum Native Village in Boston Bar, Hell's Gate Airtram, Alexandra Bridge and at the Othello Tunnels in Hope BC. The weekend was excellent and we would recommend a similar weekend getaway like it! The Canyon is really close to the city of Vancouver. Harrison Hot Springs can also easily be Incorporated into your weekend getaway. We might do it again on the September long weekend so we can do the Coast Mountain Circle Tour that goes on a giant circle through Whistler, Lillooet, The Fraser Canyon and back to Vancouver. We will be stopping in Lytton for BC River Festival that is going on for that weekend.
