Elaho & Gondola Combo from Squamish

Reconnect with nature and get a shot of adrenaline on our Elaho Exhilarator rafting trip and Sea-to-Sky Gondola combo departing from Squamish. Rediscover your sense of adventure and love of the outdoors on this memorable whitewater experience. It’s an excellent opportunity to escape the city, and enjoy the incredible beauty British Columbia has to offer.

“The Elaho Exhilarator trip was perfect. The guides were very well organized and efficient, but without rushing their guests. The rafting trip itself was just the right length — not too long, not too short. Highly recommended.” ScottF702

Rediscover your sense of adventure!

The Wet & Wild Elaho Exhilarator and Sea-to-Sky Gondola combo is a full-day adventure trip that features rafting on big waves, outstanding scenery and lots of laughs, along with amazing views and trails at the peak of the Gondola. It’s an ideal outdoor activity for beginners, thrill seekers, and anyone looking to get away from the stress of everyday life to  adventure in nature.

Leave the city behind and take in the views along the famously scenic Sea-to-Sky Highway to get to our Squamish rafting resort to begin your adventure on the Elaho River.

Our talented team of professional river guides will teach you the skills necessary to ride big waves and catch air as you navigate down the Class 3-4 Elaho and Squamish Rivers. Your courage will be tested as you travel through the infamous “Devil’s Elbow” section of the rapids, as seen on TV’s famous Eco-Challenge Adventure Race. Depending on the water levels, you’ll also be able to swim through some small rapids and enjoy a few laughs as your crewmates scramble to stay on board.

Along with some of North America’s most exhilarating rapids, your river journey will take you through approximately 10 miles of British Columbia’s most inspiring wilderness. Take time to appreciate your surroundings and enjoy the world-class scenery including old growth forests, dormant volcanoes, towering glaciers, and stunning waterfalls that cascade hundreds of feet toward the river. If you’re really lucky you’ll get a glimpse of the local deer, beavers and bears which often stop by the river’s edge.

When your river journey ends, we’ll take you to our rafting resort where you’ll be able to change back into your own clothes and check out the photos and GoPro videos shot on the trip. Then you’ll head to the Sea-to-Sky Gondola to begin your adventure in the mountains with a 10-minute ride to the top at 885m above sea level.

The ride up provides sweeping views of Howe Sound, the majestic coastal forest and surrounding mountains. Once at the top, many other adventures await. Access a wide array of outdoor experiences including two different interpretive loop walking trails with cantilevered viewing platforms, the spectacular Sky Pilot Suspension Bridge, numerous hiking trails, and much more.

“Received this trip as a birthday gift and it has officially become my favourite gift to date. What a wicked ride. The river guides were confident and capable, not to mention hilarious. Exhilarating experience overall. I wouldn’t hesitate for a moment to recommend these guys, and I’m looking forward to going back again. Suuuuuuper FUN!” ~ Ty R

“A wonderful rafting trip. We’ve done several rafting trips in the western US and I can say without question this was the most organized, well run, experienced, and last but certainly not least, FUN group I’ve ever dealt with. Sometimes on a new river my anxiety is running high when I have my family’s safety to worry about. My mind was quickly put at ease by Leon and the entire crew and we had a BLAST. If you think the Sea to Sky drive is beautiful scenery, just wait till you do this rafting trip! 5 out of 5 stars for Canadian Outback Rafting! “ ~ Eric H
