Rafting (Reo Rafting Resort/Ryan Robinson photo)
The Cariboo Chilcotin Coast region lays claim to some of Western Canada's most epic river/whitewater rafting opportunities.
In fact, the Chilko-Chilcotin-Fraser system is regarded by river operators as one of BC's must-do whitewater routes – one that offers North America's longest stretches of consistent class III and IV rapids.
Starting in the heavily glaciated Coast Mountains, the aqua-blue Chilko and Chilcotin rivers flow across old lava beds, through the ranching country of the Chilcotin Plateau, before merging with BC's longest river, the Fraser.
The Upper Quesnel River also packs an exciting assortment of rapids over its relatively short stretch.
Expeditions here will also take you through semi-arid canyons that are home to fascinating hoodoo (rock) formations and North America's largest population of non-migratory bighorn sheep. Guided trips range from a single day adventure to an 11-day expedition-style journey.
Here, rafting trips are best described as comfortably remote. The region's rivers are far removed from the general populace and are travelled by only a handful of rafting companies, giving them an almost frontier-like feel.
