Whitewater Raft­ing

If you would dare to face a rag­ing river, Whistler’s Wedge Raft­ing of­fers whitewater raft­ing tours that will pump up your adren­a­line (and prob­a­bly your arms). Ex­pe­ri­enced guides pro­vide safety brief­ings, then lead groups on an ex­cit­ing run down the rapids. The com­pany of­fers a few dif­fer­ent trips (in­clud­ing a fam­ily-friendly tour on the Cheaka­mus River), but the Green River tour is Wedge’s most pop­u­lar choice, of­fer­ing a mid-level ex­pe­ri­ence that’s ideal for first-timers. Guests travel north of Whistler to the Green River, which of­fers Class 2 and 3 rapids. This tour takes 2.25 hours, with four trips de­part­ing daily. All guests need to bring is a bathing suit and towel — wet­suits, boots and life­jack­ets are pro­vided. If that sounds too tame, check out the full-day Elaho-Squamish River tour. The trip shut­tles guests south of Whistler into Par­adise Val­ley, where your crew will tackle chal­leng­ing Class 3 and 4 rapids. This tour also in­cludes an on-river snack and a bar­be­cue lunch.
