Rafting the Illecillewaet River

Revelstoke, British Columbia is a world renowned ski destination, but there is plenty to do in these intervening summer months as well. Some of the area’s more exciting activities include whitewater rafting and kayaking. In Revelstoke, these can be done on the Illecillewaet River. The river is glacier fed, which makes it the perfect place to spend a hot day. The river, named by the Shuswap Indians for its rushing waters, offers adventurous travelers plenty of action.

  The Illecillewaet isn't terribly wild, but if you want something very sedate, get a canoe and float on the Columbia River. There are also several mountain lakes that are easily accessible, and provide an excellent setting for some relaxing summertime recreation. The Goldstream River is also nearby, and offers visitors the chance to take a nice meandering paddle through nature's magnificence. Heli Skiing BC
