What Katie Did: Rafting in Squamish, B.C.
White-water rafting is a true Canadian experience, so when we landed a deal with Canadian Outback Rafting I was pumped to try it out. Guides with tons of energy take you in a big yellow school bus down a logging road from Squamish to the start point along the Elaho River, ready for about 10 miles of rafting.
The rapids are an intermediate Class 3-4, which is suitable for any experience level, and all gear is provided, including booties, helmets and life jackets.
What to bring: Sunscreen, a swimsuit or swim shorts and a warm sweater for the bus journey back.
What not to bring: Small children. This trip is for people ages 13 and over weighing at least 90 pounds.
What we loved: The guides were entertaining and full of local knowledge. There’s also a chance to see beavers, deer, bears and mountain goats.
Good to know: Safety is the company’s No. 1 priority and there is a full briefing before you push off the shore -- with a chance to opt out if you change your mind.
Travelzoo Tip: You can rent GoPros from Canadian Outback Rafting for $55 plus tax.
