Catch a Wave - 3 Hours

Finally a trip that children as young as 7 can enjoy. “Catch A Wave” is so much more than just a raft trip. In many ways it can be a life changing experience not just for kids, but for mom, dad, and all family members. We've seen shy, reserved children come out of their shell with newly-gained confidence.

Gone are electronic gadgets, chores, and schedules. Our “Catch A Wave” trip makes everyone a part of a team, all working together to achieve a common goal. We've been told time and time again from parents that this trip was one of the most rewarding experiences their kids have ever had.

Our safety conscious and informative guides will do their utmost to teach a little bit about the natural history and geology of the area as well as find time to go for a hike to a breathtaking waterfall or explore some old growth forest.

IWE has strong safety policies regarding all trips. We have a minimum of two guides on every “Catch A Wave” even with as few as four guests. We stay away from the big rapids of the Clearwater River and operate the “Catch A Wave” trip on a section of river that is class two only. We start in late July when the levels have receded and the water and air temperatures have warmed up. All participants are outfitted with a 3mm wetsuit for warmth as well as a fleece pullover, splash jacket, lifejacket, and helmet.


Ready-Set-Go - 4 Hours

This “get in and rip” trip covers some of the best whitewater rafting in BC. Our new “Ready-Set- Go” gives you 14 km of Clearwater River that definitely delivers the “wow factor”.

The trip starts at Granite Canyon on gentle class 2 whitewater. Drift by towering canyons and cliffs of ancient lava. The middle canyon is Mother Nature’s natural roller coaster. At the halfway mark of the trip we postage an unrunable section of river. All the boats and equipment are taken around by trailer but you have the opportunity for an easy 15 minute hike along the canyon to see why we portage. This is a seldom seen, stunningly beautiful, 500 meter section called Granite Canyon. Then, we meet up with the boats for the trip down the lower canyon. Packed with rapids like “The Wall”, “Tsunami” and “Buckaroo” it is the perfect ending to your 4 hour adventure. Near the bottom of the canyon, you can try body surfing in a class 2 rapid.

Guaranteed Addiction - 1 Day

Guaranteed Addiction is our always-popular, awesome all-day raft extravaganza. Experience a FULL DAY of heart pounding thrills as you charge through Sabertooth Canyon. Enjoy lunch on a beautiful sandy beach and get right in behind a waterfall plunging 35 meters. If water levels permit the guides will have the brave ones walking right thru the heart of it. Glance up as you quietly drift by towering canyons and ancient lava cliffs. Wells Gray Park is being considered for “World Heritage Status” because of the unique and wild volcanic features in the park.

Guaranteed Addiction is a summer tradition for tourists and locals alike. It is a unique experience, unmatched in British Columbia with natural splendor and sensational whitewater. This is an 8 hour trip with everything you need supplied - the only thing you need to bring is a healthy sense of adventure.

Do You Believe in Magic - 5 Days, 4 Nights

Wells Gray Park is a magical place, the 3rd largest
wilderness park in BC, and is the backdrop for our award winning “Do You Believe In Magic” 5 day trip.

This trip offers a rare combination of canoeing, hiking, and whitewater rafting. The canoeing portion of the trip starts in the Cariboo Mountains on the west end of Mahood Lake
in canoes loaded up with enough supplies and gear for the next three days. Beautiful beaches and, old growth forest present themselves on this first day of paddling. Mahood Lake is known for its warmer waters during the summer months so swimming can be enjoyed throughout the day. Set up camp at the end of the day on a sandy beach and see how amazing food can taste when cooked over an open fire.

On the morning of day three we leave the canoes behind and hike along the Mahood River. What lies ahead is the immense chunk of wilderness called Wells Gray Park. Late in the afternoon we arrive at the confluence of the Mahood and Clearwater River. The most adventurous part of the trip is about to begin.
