We took our high school senior class rafting with Ben and Dave. I am impressed with the level of service and professionalism of this company. The river was great and the food outstanding. We will be back next year!

To all the staff at Wakpa: Thanks for an amazing day rafting on the highwood river!! You guys did an excellent job from start to finish!

A large group of us spent the weekend camping and rafting with Wakpa. It was excellent! Beautiful area to camp in. It was raining all weekend but thankfully they let us hang out in their large tent with a warm wood stove, and there was even a sauna to warm up in. We wandered over to the main area Saturday...

We went for a raft trip on Friday and had the best fun ever. While in the raft we were both entertained and well taken care of with professional guides and a safety kayak on the side. They are the only operation on the Highwood river; so no line of rafts or overly touristy situations. Just you and the other... More

Dave, Ben & Julie. Hats off to the 3 of you for making this adventure a success! For $150 we got an orientation about river rafting, a class 4 rapid about 50 metres into the trek., lunch, jump & a swim, dinner (mm...elk burgers!), sauna & about 4hrs on the river. Amazing! Highwood River was gorgeous and the water level... More

I got a group of friends together for white water rafting with Wapka in early June. The whole trip was fantastic! The team was very helpful with the planning and booking of the trip. I got speedy replies to my messages, and booking was a breeze. The drive out to the camp was beautiful, even on a rainy day. When... More

An authentic experience from beginning to end. Amazing rafting through beautiful scenery with professional and easy going guides. For anyone looking for something more than the cookie cutter rafting experience, Wakpa is a definite must. Camping out is highly recommended, it's nice to get to relax with the guides and hear their colorful stories and adds another level of connection... More

I had a great day of rafting with Wapka in early June. There was lots of white-water and the river was running really well. We only had to paddle to go through the rapids, which was a nice change from the grueling paddling I've had to do on slower rivers. Dave and Ben are terrific guides, personable and fun but... More

We booked this White Water Rafting trip as one more thing to cross off my "Bucket List". Although a bit off the beaten track, the directions were so exact that we had no problems at all in finding it. The team was very professional in going over the rules and safety guidelines. We were given a brief rafting trial in... More
