Elaho Whitewater Experience
An exhilarating full day adventure on a class 3-4 river in a spectacular wilderness setting through the Squamish Valley. Hanging glaciers, towering mountains, cascading waterfalls, exciting rapids, lush rainforest, BBQ lunch, and a cliff jump - if you dare.
No prior experience is required.
What to Expect
The tour begins at our raft base at 9am. Transport from our downtown office and Whistler are provided free of charge. If you would like transport from Vancouver, it can be arranged for $35. Once everyone is at the base, you will be introduced to our guides and given time to change into your wetsuits provided. The busses will then be loaded and the ride to the river will take about an hour and a half. On the ride, you will be given a safety briefing and some information on the river. At the river, as the guides get the rafts and gear ready, the driver will help you get suited up in your safety equipment- making sure it all fits properly. From there- it's time for some fun! Enjoy the adrenaline rush of crashing through exciting rapids and get the chance to try a cliff jump if you're feeling adventurous. Lunch is next on the menu, so you will stop on a private island and relax as the guides prepare a delicious BBQ and various salads. After filling up on lunch, you will hop back in the rafts and continue your adventure down the mighty Elaho river. Once you reach the end of the river, the bus will get loaded back up and the driver will take you back to the base to dry off and change. Say goodbye to your new friends from there and enjoy free professional photos downloadable from our website within the next few days following your trip.
