    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Squamish Rafting Company, 40446 Government Rd, Squamish, BC V8B 0P9, Canada

    Transport from Squamish and Whistler are provided free of charge. If you would like transport from Vancouver, it can be arranged for $35.

    The tour begins at our raft base at 8:45am where you will check in and fill out our paperwork. 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 professional photos taken throughout the day.

    Duration: 7 hours 30 minutes

    We were worried it might be too cold (glacier fed 3-6degrees). Not at all with the good quality wetsuits they provide! We even jumped in. Amazing day. Great guides and good food. The rapids were not intimidating (I was afraid of falling-in). We were in the front row of the raft
