Smithers, River Rafting

At the beginning of the summer, I had the pleasure of rafting down the Bulkley River. I had never seen the Bulkley Valley from that perspective before, and it was quite scenic.
As far as wildlife, we saw one deer and an eagle. Our guide (thankfully) steered us out of the bigger rapids, so our trip was tame and relaxing. If you are more interested in white water rafting, the Bulkley also offers a wilder ride in faster moving water. Our trip took us a total of 2 hours from the Telkwa bridge to Lunan Road in Smithers.
