With over 5,250 Sq Km of area to explore, Wells Gray Provincial Park is one the largest parks in Canada. With thousands of years of volcanic activity, Wells Gray is being considered for "World Heritage Status" due to the abundance of unique and wild volcanic features that the park has to offer.

The river is comprised of three raftable canyons: the Upper (Sabertooth) Canyon, the Middle (Granite) Canyon, and the Lower Canyon. Your tour will start at the Lower Canyon on gentle whitewater. As you start to raft down stream, take the time to look around at the cliffs and canyons filled with an abundance of igneous rocks formed from thousands of years of old volcanic activity. Your professional and knowledgeable guides will give all of the safety information you will need to know before getting into the bigger rapids. As you make your way down the consistent section of river, you will encounter an abundance of waves and even have the opportunity to see what it feels like to body surf through a section of class 2 rapids.
