Stairway to Heaven ~ Chilcotin and Fraser Rivers

We've found a way to make your journey to personal restoration not just possible but highly likely… Load some gear rafts and a dory with all the camping luxuries and fine cuisine you could want and join us for 4 days of whitewater rafting in British Columbia’s heartland.

From its source high upon the Chilcotin Plateau in the interior of British Columbia runs a River that is rich in cowboy history, gold rush folklore, native culture, and flows through one of the most beautiful areas in all of Canada. Mixed grasslands and forests, towering canyons, and abundant wildlife make this desert area an adventure seekers paradise. This is the backdrop for our 4 day “Stairway To Heaven” whitewater dory trip.

In between rapids there is time to glance up as you quietly drift by towering canyons and sandstone hoodoos that have been carved by wind and water over centuries. You'll have a chance to explore an old homestead, as well as take an outstanding hike to giant sand dune along the north side of the River. During salmon season, witness First Nations catching and drying salmon as their ancestors have done for thousands of years in this area. You'll see Gang Ranch country, Canada’s second largest active cattle ranch and one of the biggest in North America. Watch out for prickly pear cactus because this desert environment is one of the driest, hottest places in all of Canada.
