Location - Clearwater, BC - Wells Gray Park
Located in the town of Clearwater BC, Interior Whitewater Rafting and Adventures is proud to be able to claim the spectacular Wells Gray Provincial Park as its back yard and playground.
||"At the town of Clearwater, about 180km from the North Thompson's glacial beginnings, the river is joined by one of the most spectacular tributaries of the Fraser system. Clearwater river is the culmination of an incredible concentration of waterfalls, rapids and chutes, probably the greatest in BC. It is a world of white water and blue lakes protected by one of the province's largest and finest parks, Wells Gray. This wilderness reserve stretches across more than 520,000 hectares of mountains and alpine meadows, recent volcanoes and lava flows, all drained by streams destined for the Clearwater River.
From its source in Clearwater Lake, the river has over eons carved a deep valley through lava and rock to the Thompson. Along the way streams drop into the Clearwater River from a plateau that lifts almost vertically above its east bank. From alpine meadows and tree-bordered lakes, streams tumble down mountain slopes towards the river, bursting suddenly into the valley as dramatic waterfalls, sometimes enfolded by curves of gigantic bowls carved in lava by falling water.
Helmcken Falls is the most celebrated: here Murtle River drops 142 meters, creating the fourth highest waterfall in Canada and one of the most spectacular in all of North America... Below the mouth of the Clearwater, the North Thompson is a broad, powerful river. The watersheds of both rivers are traditional territory of the North Thompson Band of the Shuswap nation."
Excerpt from "Mighty River - A Portrait of the Fraser" by Richard C. Bocking
Absolutely incredible experience especially the cliff jump. Watching bald eagle follow us down stream was also a sight to behold. Our guide Kristine was amazing and also the rest of the Team.

A big thanks to the team at IWE! You were the highlight of our visit to British Columbia. Keep up the great work, and we hope to return soon!
Wow, what a great trip, we did “The Catch A Wave” excursion as our son is only 8 years old. Harry and Kenny were fantastic, Kenny got my son Oscar on the back of his kayak and had soooo much fun! Thanks for making a great morning for us!! We will recommend this trip when we go home & post it on my trips web page with company British Airways. Thanks again.

We have done trips with several different companies and have found IWE to be the best. Your highly trained staff is very professional and the safety prep before each trip is so thorough that we feel ready for anything. In fact, we have ‘tripped’ with your crew six times already and would go on any excursion managed by your company, anytime.
