Bodies of water are frequent metaphors in poetry due to their unfathomable depths, unknowable sprawl, and unattainable river otters. Set sail into the enigma with this Groupon.
$54 for Three-Hour Whitewater-Rafting Trip ($109 Value)
Along the Ready-Set-Go! rafting adventure, experienced pilots guide boats over the churning waters of the Mosh Pit and The Wall of the Clearwater River. While taking a brief respite from the rapids, guests hike to a waterfall and take in the Wells Gray volcanic field scenery flush with old-growth forests, blue lakes, and canyon walls.
Interior Whitewater Expeditions
Experienced guides paddle groups past Wells Gray's volcanic cones and its myriad waterfalls cascading from high cliffs flanked by old-growth forests. They navigate this wilderness via the torrential rapids of the Clearwater River. To accommodate those of varying experience, trips ranging from three hours to five days traverse both whitewater and pacified aquatic plateaus. Banked by the towering canyon walls and sagebrush of Wells Gray Provincial Park, river-pilots point out bald eagles, black bears, and california bighorn sheep throughout the area. During multiday adventures, the crew supplements days of rafting with activities such as canoeing Mahood Lake, spotting native pictographs, hiking to Goodwin Falls, and camping. After embarking on expeditions, the crew recommends stopping by The Kettle Café for slow-cooked fare, and all multiday trips include provided riverside meals.
