Two-days Rafting - Ashcroft to Lytton
View a photo slideshow of a naturalist/photography workshop held between Ashcroft and Lytton in 2012.
Top 5 Reasons to Go
- 150 million year old Black Canyon
- Golden eagle’s nest or maybe the golden eagle
- Black Canyon rapid…yeh!
- Count the osprey
- An impressive talus slope, landslides, desert-like badlands
Much more than whitewater, this river escape floats you through stunning desert-like badlands – sage brush, Ponderosa pines, prickly pear cactus – and over 40 sets of the river’s best whitewater rapids.
The highlight of the first day is Black Canyon, a 150-million year old sedimentary canyon wall with a powerful rapid in its gorge and a golden eagle as sentinel on its cliffs. Once off the river, you are bussed from Spences Bridge back to our Rafting Resort in Lytton, where you will enjoy dinner, evening activities, and accommodation of your choice, followed by breakfast in the morning.
Day-two will excite you with the legendary Thompson River rapids. We bus you back to Spences Bridge in the morning, where easy rapids launch the day until you arrive at Nicomen, half-way on your voyage to Lytton.
After a hearty lunch taken on the deck overlooking Nicomen Falls, you’re back on the river, immediately assaulted by the first of 18 legendary rapids.
For a wonderful two days and an adventure that will awaken all your senses, choose this excursion.
Be sure to order your copy of British Columbia’s Majestic Thompson River, a book written by Kumsheen’s founder Bernie Fandrich and endorsed by Rick Mercer of The Rick Mercer Report.
