Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet your experienced guides in Wells Gray Park, and start the day by fitting wetsuits and learning the basics of safety and technique. Learn to paddle as a team—or opt for a seat where you don’t need to paddle—then board your raft to ride through the Clearwater River’s first rapid. Try out your skills on ‘The Wall’ and ‘Funnel Chute,’ technical sections where the whole raft pulls together to avoid underwater hazards.

Continue downriver to ‘Hole-in-the-Wall’ and ‘Bear's Den,’ where surging high water has created unique features at the water’s edge. Now that you’ve practiced paddling technique, take on the most exciting waves of the trip in a thrilling lineup: experience standing and breaking waves in ‘Hawaii 5-0’, ‘Tsunami’ and ‘Buckaroo,’ and if you’re feeling adventurous, try taking a turn in the ‘Super Screamer Seat.’

In spring and early summer, stretch your legs on a walk to Candle Creek Falls, where you can slip behind a waterfall and jump into a churning pool. In between the major rapids, cool off in the river, learning to time your breathing to the bottom of the waves. When water levels are high, challenge yourself to jump from a 25-foot (8-meter) cliff, then ride through the final wave train at Otter Stretch before arriving at the take out point, where you can change into dry clothes.

Excellent company and experience.
, Aug 2021
Jamie, our water rafting guide was an expert in his craft: he not only explained the basics of river rafting, the safety guidelines, but also included the history of the place, its original inhabitants, the flora and fauna. This made it informative to beginners like me and my wife. Clearwater river lives up to its name as the river was crystal clear: you could see all the way to the buttom of it! The rapids in this area is superb. The presence of an osprey nest, together with its parents guarding it against a bald eagle was a added bonus. Purposely falling overboad to swim in the placid and deep portion of the river was fun. And as if to up the ante, climbing a small cliff and jumping over it made for a total experience. I highly recommend this company to anybody with an open mind on trying to experience water rafting in such a pristine setting and expert guide.
A bit of everything

My family and I stopped in for a 3 hour white water rafting trip with Riverside adventures and had an amazing time. On this trip you get a bit of everything-rapids, a short waterfall hike, optional cliff jump and lots of opportunities to swim. On top of that the entire team was very knowledgeable, friendly and fun. Highly recommend this company!

Real nice experience of rafting on a great river with a great team. The guide tells a lot of interesting things about nature. During the raft we visited a waterfall and had the possibility to jump in, and we did. When you are in the neigboorhood we advise you to try it.
