Splash through the rapids of the Cheakamus River, paddling gentle waves between towering evergreens, on a full-day combination trip from Vancouver. You’ll travel past British Colombia’s coastal forests on the way to the river, then change into dry clothes for the Sea to Sky Gondola, where you’ll have views across Howe Sound and the mountains. This adventurous, family-friendly day is a good fit for first-time rafters, and it includes your tickets to the Sky to Sea Gondola, as well as round-trip transport from selected hotels in Vancouver.
