The Thompson River
Legendary Aug & Sep Paddle Rafting Trips

  "Rafting down the Thompson was an absolute thrill. The feeling of rushing towards the rapids as your guide yells "Forward!!" was absolutely exhilarating."

Thompson River Day Trip

One of the best late summer paddle rafting trips in all of Canada. Surrounded by desert canyon scenery, enjoy huge roller coaster waves like the frog and witches cauldron. As water levels drop the waves become bigger and more defined perfect for smaller REO paddle rafts!

2.5 hours from Vancouver BC and 4 hours from Seattle WA
