The Deal

On day one of the adventure, guides teach rafters of all experience levels the skills necessary to navigate Class III and IV rapids. Rafters take off down the Elaho River and tackle challenges such as the Devil’s Elbow section while playing skill-honing games and leaping into the cool waters. Tours glide past jaw-dropping vistas that include old-growth forests, dormant volcanoes, and waterfalls, and wildlife such as beavers and bears occasionally make appearances.

At the end of the 10-mile journey, rafters will make camp on a sandy beach as guides prepare a meal around the campfire. After awaking to the sound of the river and a hearty breakfast, rafters will set out yet again on a much gentler float down the Squamish River. Once outings have adjourned, guests return to the rafting base at the Executive Suites Hotel & Resort in Squamish where they can change into dry clothes or grab a bite to eat at the on-site restaurant. Canadian Outback Adventures & Events provides guests with all food and gear, including wetsuits, booties, a life jacket, and a helmet. A personal tent and sleeping gear, however, are not included.

Canadian Outback Rafting Company

The bright-yellow raft slams head-on into the rapid, sending a torrential downpour over the drenched but laughing rafters as they climb the foaming waves. Such high-adrenaline moments are hardly a rarity on Canadian Outback Rafting’ whitewater-rafting trips, a meticulously planned adventure that unfolds in the midst of British Columbia's most scenic locales. It all began in 1992, when the Corbett brothers James and Steve founded Canadian Outback Rafting Company, and transitioned from multi-day, expedition-style soft adventures to one and two day adventures.

Canadian Outback Rafting Company is built upon a foundation of social responsibility and the belief that learning, discovering, and laughing brings people together. Their Canadian Outback Cares initiative has contributed funds toward causes such as Muscular Dystrophy Canada, Junior Achievement of BC, and the Nature Trust of British Columbia.

Customer Reviews

Good gear, enthusiastic staff. The Elaho had some rapids but there was a fair bit of flat water too. Overall a fun time. Definitely pack a lunch for yourself because only a small snack is provided, and it's a long day.

Staff are enthusiastic, have taken the time to learn about the area and the lore that should be shared. They also took personal interest in the customers.
