Canadian Outback Adventures & Events - Elaho Exhilarator Whitewater Rafting for One
Experience the Thrill of White Water Rafting on the Elaho River in Squamish!
Our talented team of professional river guides will teach you the skills necessary to maneuver through exciting Class 3-4 rapids, including the challenging “Devil’s Elbow” section, used for Mark Burnett's famous Eco-Challenge Adventure Race. Depending on water levels, you may have the chance to swim through rapids and showcase your sense of balance in some of your guide's amusing challenges & games. Along with some of North America’s most exhilarating rapids, your river journey will take you through approximately 16 kms (10 miles) of British Columbia’s most inspiring wilderness. Don’t forget to take time to reconnect with our world-class scenery, including: old growth forests, dormant volcanoes, towering glaciers, and stunning waterfalls that cascade hundreds of feet towards the river. If you're really lucky you'll get a glimpse of the local deer, beavers and bears which often stop by the river's edge.
Whether you’re a thrill seeker or just trying to get away from the stress of everyday life, our Elaho Exhilarator whitewater rafting adventure has everything you’ll need to recharge your batteries. The Squamish and Elaho (EE-la-ho) rivers, located near Squamish just a short drive from Vancouver & Whistler, British Columbia, provide the backdrop for this extremely popular whitewater river rafting journey. We raft these rivers more often than all other outfitters combined, ensuring your experience with us will be the very best possible. This is REAL whitewater rafting. This river system offers plenty of challenges for both novice and experienced rafters, allowing you to create an experience you’ll never forget.
