The crystal-clear waters of British Columbia’s Elaho River flow in a steady stream while passengers on Canadian Outback Rafting’s rafts ride down the winding river. Through this rafting experience, the great outdoors greets thrill-seekers with old growth forests, dormant volcanoes, waterfalls and glaciers. Along the 10-mile wilderness route, wildlife sightings of bear, deer and beaver are not uncommon. Canadian Outback Rafting’s “Wet and Wild Elaho Exhilarator” trip consists of three hours of adventurous rafting on class 3 to 4 rapids in Squamish. Guides provide safety instructions and outfit passengers with lifejackets, helmets, booties and wetsuits.

Squamish sits between Vancouver and Whistler along the Sea-to-Sky highway, making this an easy day excursion from either city. Or adventurers can bunk down in Squamish.
