Located in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains, the fast paced Chilliwack River offers exciting rafting from May through July.

Considered to be one of the best rivers near Vancouver, the Chilliwack is the perfect day trip. Nestled amongst the mountains of the North Cascades, the Chilliwack drops 10 meters per kilometer, creating numerous long and continuous rapids. Easily accessible and only one hour from the city, the Chilliwack is highlighted by the Tamahi rapids, where training takes place for the Canadian national kayak team.
