The Slocan River is perfect for those that want everything whitewater rafting can offer. You can relax and take in the scenery through the first section of the trip. The water is crystal clear and by early summer becomes warm enough for swimming and floating along beside the raft. In the last section of the trip, the speed of the river increases. It's time to get ready for some action as we introduce you to some really great class II and III whitewater. A rafting trip on the Slocan River is a real treat for families and first timers alike.
