TRIP ITENERARY

Get ready for three great days on the river! We board our river van promptly at 8:00 a.m. and head for the river about 45 minutes away. En route your guides will present orientation and safety information. At the river launching site, you will receive your river gear including a paddle, a helmet and a life jacket. We will launch our boats, practice paddling skills with our guides, and head for the excitement and fun of the Tunnel Chute and Kanaka Falls!

We stop around mid-afternoon at our wilderness camp where your personal gear awaits you; there is time to enjoy the peace of the remote canyon over dinner and campfire.

The next day we continue our run with more big rapids like Chunder and Parallel Parking and camp again on the lower section of the Middle Fork. Day 3 is spent on the mellow Class 2’s and sometimes you can add an inflatable kayak for an exciting challenge! Our shuttle vehicle will greet us at take-out with cold beverages for the ride back to camp. You’re ready to head home by around 5:00 p.m., relaxed and full of memories from a great river trip experience!
