Rafting is a great way to explore a wilderness river if you prefer the comfort of a stable and forgiving watercraft. It is a great bridge for those with prior flatwater paddling experience, but not a lot (or any!) whitewater paddling experience.
We offer two types of rafting trips. Those on the Nahanni & Magpie Rivers, run in conjunction wiht Boreal River Adventres, take place in expedition rafts. These fit approximately five paddlers, a guide, and some group gear. On these trips there will also be the opportunity to paddle and challenge yourself outside of your main raft, either on a stand up paddle (SUP) board or a small yet stable kayak-raft ("kayaraft").
On our Kootenay and Soper River trips, we use SOAR rafts - many people refer to these as canoes! Like canoes, SOARs are suitable for two paddlers - one in the front, the other in the back - and they can be maneuvred in similiar ways to a canoe, while offering more stability.
