The Elaho Exhilarator – your ticket to the adventure of a lifetime!

The Wet & Wild Elaho Exhilarator rafting trip is one of our most popular rafting adventures, and for good reason.

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.

This is white water rafting at its best!

“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

Following your exciting rafting trip we’ll take you on a short bus ride to our breathtaking rafting resort in the Squamish Valley. You’ll be able to change back into your own clothes and check out the photos and GoPro Videos shot on the trip. Relax while you enjoy the stunning glacial views, sit by the fire, or challenge your fellow paddlers to a volleyball game and experience true Canadian Wilderness.

If you’re interested in an overnight white water rafting trip that includes the Elaho Exhilarator, then check out our 2-Day Rafting Wilderness Expedition. During this trip, you’ll experience two days of rafting, dinner, overnight stay at our private island campsite (surrounded on all sides by stunning views of the Coast Mountains), and breakfast the next morning. It’s a remarkable experience.
