    This famous stretch of whitewater is synonymous with the Thompson River and perfect if you don’t have time for a full day or longer trip. It’s our no frills/all thrills excursion through the 18 rapids that made rafting in the west famous. We bus you from our resort to Nicomen, you board your power or paddle raft after a detailed safety talk, and you’re then immediately into The Frog, the first rapid in the Devil’s Gorge.
