Stein River Extreme
The Steepest, Wildest Paddle Rafting Trip in Canada

"If extreme rafting is what you want, the Stein River is technical, has non-stop rapids and the canyon is beautiful. Next year, we will be booking the Stein for more action, for sure!"

Stein River Class 5 Rafting

A 3 day/2 night adrenaline rush! REO pioneered the Stein River in 1993 for commercial rafting, the first descent was achieved by helicopter access. In total only about 290 people in the world have ever rafted the Stein. Are you ready for the challenge?

To run the Stein safely as REO has for 24 years, guests need special training. On the first river day this will include swimming a Class 3+ rapid on the upper Nahatlatch and raft flipping drills. Strong paddling, good swimming ability and team work is highly recommended. On our second full day, we paddle 27 amazing quick-fire rapids on the Stein and make some very technical moves. Paddlers need to be both precise and coordinated. Staying in the boat is recommended!

August 2020 TBD; Group of 6+ (contact for custom dates)
