Whitewater rafting is a safe, well-managed sport. Before getting onto the water guests learn paddling skills, water safety and have a dry land practice. With experienced guides leading the way, the guests and their crewmates head down the river aboard stable, inflated rafts designed to provide an unforgettable adventure. 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.


Adams River Salmon Run

Directions: From Kamloops, head east on Hwy 1 to the Scotch Creek turnoff at Squilax. Roderick Haig Brown Park is located 5 km from Squilax (66 km from Kamloops)

Every year in late September to mid-October, hundreds of thousands of salmon make their way up the mighty Fraser and Thompson Rivers to spawn. It’s a massive migration and a yearly ritual established well before humans settled the area. The Adams River is also the final home for Chinook, Coho and pink salmon. The 2,440-acre Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park and its fine interpretive area explain the salmon’s whole remarkable cycle.
