Vancouver: White Water Rafting
A multicultural metropolis with snowcapped crags, city-hugging beaches and waterfront forests
Although you’d struggle to find rapids running through most major cities, Vancouver comes close. Within easy reach of many commercially-rafted rivers opportunities abound to raft whilst staying in Vancouver. It’s barely an hour’s drive north or east of downtown Vancouver to get you to prime rafting areas. If you take the Sea to Sky Highway North, you’ll come to the rafting meccas of Squamish and Whistler, and eastwards is the Chilliwack River, with its famous Tamihi Rapids. Trips are offered by companies such as Candian Outback Adventures.
