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."

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!
We thoroughly enjoyed it and were very impressed with your company and the people you employ (lunch was great too!) I hope to be back and I would certainly give IWE a five star rating to anybody else. - June 2014
Doug, We just wanted to drop you a line and tell you we missed being able to raft with IWE down the Clearwater River this Covid cursed year. Your decision to not operate because the restrictions put your clients safety in jeopardy was tough but so much who you are. We have done many whitewater trips, in Canada and away and yours is the only one we felt completely prepared us for every scenario before we set off. Your guides are superb, friendly and highly trained. Our favorite trip, Guaranteed Addiction (7 times!) can't be beat for excitement and thrills. Then the 5 day trip down the Chilcotin with you and your crew was such a great one we did it twice. When you reopen we will be on your doorstep, with as many family members we can bring along. Please post this in your reviews for us if you can. Thanks and see you next year!

Your staff consists of the most professional raft guides we deal with. We just wanted to thank you for taking a personal interest and creating the safest, most enjoyable trips possible. The students are always raving about the hike behind Moul Falls, the delicious lunch, and the amazing rapids of course

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.
