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."

We were somewhat nervous, but the staff do such a good job of covering the safety issues we felt quite positive we picked the best company to go with. The staff is wonderful! What a great job the guides do - you can tell they have experience! We will definitely be back for more.

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.
