Whitewater rafting is a safe, well-managed sport. Even before getting onto the water guests learn paddling skills, water safety and have a dry land practice. Then, with experienced guides leading the way, the guests and their crewmates head down the river aboard stable, inflated rafts designed to provide the kind of adventure they will never forget. In Kamloops Country, visitors can take a water rafting trip suited to their interests—extreme, casual or novice. Take a motorized raft trip or enjoy a paddle trip and really get involved with the river. There are three rivers to raft in Kamloops Country, the Thompson, Adams, and Clearwater. A variety of companies—some with 20 years or more experience—spend six months a year guiding rafters of all skill levels.
