Start at the Executive Suites Hotel and Resort in Squamish, where you'll meet your guides and get outfitted with everything you need for rafting: wetsuit, booties, jacket and helmet. From there, board the bus for the drive out to the launch spot in beautiful Squamish Valley. At the river's edge, your guides will give you the run-down of rafting rules, techniques and safety procedures, teaching you the skills necessary to maneuver through exciting Class III-IV rapids.

Hop in your raft and begin paddling down the Elaho River. You'll spend about 3 hours on the water and travel approximately 13 miles (20 km) of British Columbia’s most inspiring wilderness. See old-growth forests, dormant volcanoes, towering glaciers and stunning waterfalls that cascade hundreds of feet towards the river. If you’re lucky, you may catch sight of wildlife such as deer, beavers and bears, which often stop by the river’s edge.

After a snack and drink on the water, fun games with the guides, and exciting rapids, re-board the bus and head back to the hotel, where you can change before heading up to the restaurant to unwind. While you enjoy a complimentary snack and take a look at the photos from the day, you have the opportunity to purchase beverages or a meal with the 'Rafter's Discount.'
