We had the best time with Wild Water rafting company. The service was excellent from check-in to good-bye. The staff was very friendly, knowledgeable and very safety oriented. So much so that some family members extended their journey past the gentle section as they felt...More

I loved this river as it is beautiful for bush-walking, mud baths, a picnic and rafting. This is one of the most beautiful places we saw in Canada. I can't believe how big the mountains are and how much natural beauty there is in the...More
