This is a diverse region with some stretches of excellent class four white water and enormous rapids, one run which lasts for almost an hour. The water here is fresh from a glacial lake and the river speeds you though alpine woods and some spectacular canyon scenery including Big John, Lava (for world class whitewater) and Farewell canyons. Some of the stretches are narrow and challenging, with some of the trickiest commercially raftable sections in Canada. At the other end of the journey you’re spat out onto the Fraser on the lowlands, much tamer and wider.
