Nahatlatch River, Boston Bar (Reo Rafting Resort/Ryan Robinson photo)
With millions of hectares of mountains and over 100 major river systems, British Columbia has no shortage of excellent river and whitewater rafting opportunities.
Old-growth forest, glacier-capped peaks and isolated waterfalls are just a few of the natural marvels that might be seen on a guided rafting expedition.
Three kinds of river rafting experiences are offered by British Columbia's licensed operators: paddle trips, motor-powered trips, and float trips.
Paddle trips require the most active involvement as guests must paddle the raft as the guide steers. Motor-powered trips, available on some deeper rivers, require no paddling, though guests must be able to hold on tight. On a float trip, paddling is usually optional as guides often propel and steer the raft with large oars; float trips are often accessible to people of all ages and abilities.
Guided trips will range in length from several hours to several days. On multi-day trips, accommodation may range from a simple tent in the woods to a cabin at a dedicated rafting resort.
