River rafting and Vancouver Island go hand-in-hand as mountains, rivers and rainforest create the ultimate wilderness, whitewater experience.

Located in the central to northern parts of the island, rafters are faced with limestone canyons and surfing holes where rapids earn names like "The Slot" and "Twisted Sisters."

Spend anywhere from a half day up to several days navigating Vancouver Island's rivers. Some trips are easily accessed from communities such as Campbell River and require little in the way of preparation, while others are tucked in remote valleys where you must be fully geared up for a wilderness, backcountry experience.

Rafting companies offer everything from whitewater rafting on the Nimpkish River to placid river floats along the Campbell. There are even unique river activities like snorkelling with salmon. Such a variety of guided rafting tours means there are trips for just about everyone.
