Thompson River Rafting Day Trip

Thompson River Rafting Day Trip

star-5

REO Rafting Resort offers one of the best August and September paddle rafting trips in all of Canada. Enjoy huge roller coaster waves, desert canyon scenery and a hot sunny climate. Unlike most rivers in North America, the Thompson is too high to paddle raft until the river level drops. During the sizzling summer heat, water levels begin to fall and the waves actually become bigger and more defined! Join REO on the legendary Thompson River in our small paddle rafts which are more responsive and provide an exhilarating ride (8-9 paddlers/boat). We also offer oar rafts with paddle assist, ideal for families and those that would rather enjoy the scenery without paddling too hard.
