Scenic rafting Wells Gray Park

Wells Gray Provincial Park

Wells Gray Provincial Park in Clearwater, B.C.

 

Boasting more than 5,000 square kilometers of pure wilderness in Clearwater, B.C., Wells Gray Provincial Park is home to some of the best kayaking, canoeing, fly-fishing, hiking, camping and whitewater rafting in all of British Columbia.

It is the fourth largest of B.C.’s provincial parks and is known for its four “W’s”: Wilderness, Waterfalls, Wildlife and Whitewater. Wells Gray has hundreds of stunning waterfalls, including Helmcken Falls which is three times the height of Niagara. There are mountains towering 3,000 meters high and raging whitewater rivers more than 75 kilometers long.

Wells Gray features one of the last protected watersheds in B.C., which hosts a network of five major lakes and five major rivers that confluence into the Clearwater River. On your next trip to Wells Gray, whitewater rafting is something you can’t afford to miss.

 

Why will Whitewater Rafting add to my Wells Gray Experience?

Only with whitewater rafting are you able to reach some of the most jaw-dropping scenery Wells Gray has to offer.  The Clearwater River runs 78 kilometers through the park and allows visitors to take in as much of Wells Gray’s lush landscape as possible. Hiking alone would never cover as much ground as whitewater rafting through Wells Gray.

Liquid Lifestyles Whitewater Rafting and Kayaking tours take you to these remote locations in Wells Gray.  On our multi-day, one and half-day tours you can hike to the base of the 200 foot Spahats Waterfall, or visit some of the other incredible falls such as Candle Creek, Moul Falls and Sylvia and Goodwin Falls. We provide a riverside gourmet lunch prepared by our red seal chef on our one and multi-day trips.

The spectacular access to the park is not the only reason why whitewater rafting at Wells Gray is an activity you can’t pass up. The warm water, high volume and extended season from May 1 – Oct 31 makes the Clearwater River some of the best whitewater in all of Western Canada.

Liquid Lifestyles offers a wide range of whitewater rafting trips through Wells Gray, tailored to accommodate your need for adrenaline or relaxation.  If a two day overnight wilderness camping tour or full-day tour doesn’t fit into your schedule, we paddle 14 kilometers on our 3.5 hour tours through volcanic canyons (double the river distance of any other whitewater rafting operator in Clearwater). Which ever tour you choose, we give you a front row seat to all of the stunning views at Wells Gray.

Be sure to come and check out our brand new location this summer. We are conveniently located next to the Wells Gray Info Centre.
