What a hoot!!! Excellent service; felt totally safe the entire time and had so much fun. A great adventure for the timid -
this group of well trained adventure guides will ensure your safety so you can enjoy the great outdoors and
push your boundaries to be a little more adventurous.
Exciting and refreshing - the team was fun and informative. Would definitely go again.

Staff were super engaging and fun. A terrific experience!

“Great Fun for a Bachlorette or Bachlor Party”

NWR Co. offers the perfect morning or afternoon activity for any size of bachlor/ette party or other group.
16 of us girls enjoyed rafting the Facchina Rapids on the Slocan River in three rafts for about 2 hours.

Our guide Fanni was knowledgeable and enthusiastic and we were fortunate to see a lot of wildlife (bald eagles, osprey, llama etc.)
Would recommend this trip to anyone and everyone whether or not you've rafted before.
