Location: 2.5 hours northeast of Vancouver, British Columbia
The Nahatlatch River is tucked between Nahatlatch Provential Park and the Fraser River near the town of Lytton.
Level of Difficulty: Class II-IV+ / Beginner – Intermediate
The best whitewater run in B.C. The Nahatlatch’s varied and exciting rapids show off its amusing character with names like “Rose Garden,” “Twisted Sister,” “Lose Yer Lunch,” and “Pinball.” Early rafting in May and July is best for experienced rafters however later in the season when the flows have calmed, the water is great for all levels.
Scenery: Pristine, crystal-green water and Hoodoos
Bald eagles soar in the thermals and bighorn sheep perch against a backdrop of glacier-capped peaks. Raft along steep canyons and sandstone Hoodoo (eroding geologic formations) viewing parts of the historic Caribou Wagon Road from the comfort of a river raft.
Season: May – August
During the early part of the season, in May and June, the white water is more challenging, but as the season progresses into July and August, rafting on the Nahatlatch River is perfect for all ages and skill levels.
