It is a well paved loop trail all around the Swift Creek, well it brings you back to the trail in a full circle depending on where you started. We were supposed to have eaten at the Best Western and taken the trail behind from the parking lot. We did, but

Loved it!

Having never done this kind of activity before I wasn’t sure what to expect. An easy to find location situated near the highway intersection between Valemount and McBride.We all had a clear safety brief and had all the needed equipment provided (wet suits, over tops and wet suit shoes). Then into an old school bus for the short journey to the start location.We had Nelson as our guide who was calm yet had a great sense of humour too. A great length trip - we went on the Fraser River trip. Which had a range of white water as well as needing to get the boat out for rearguard falls then back in. Defiantly recommend we enjoyed it 100% more than we thought we might!!

Willow Ranch

A small guest ranch, where you can go for some amazing trail rides through the mountains. We offer lessons, liberty/horse whispering demos and trail rides. We also have some very great miniature horses to offer little kids their first horse experience. We also have a little shop on the ranch where you can find some great souvenirs and anything you could need and want as a horse lover. We have 4 guest cabins located in the middle of nature, the ranch is located only 2 minutes from high way 5, which makes it a perfect location for overnight stop or your dream horse holiday.

Excellent Rafting Trip on the Fraser River

We had an awesome Tour with Terry who shared his bright knowledge about the Valley, it’s History and the nature with us. Apart from this, we had a thrilling rafting trip with exciting rapids, making sure you get fully wet.For those who are concerned about safety: No worries, you get a briefing before going on the river and a second guide is accompanying with a Kayak.Highly recommend to book here and would go another Whitewater raft with this company. Hi Tim,It's sure a pleasure to take out a group with a keen eye for adventure such as you guys were. With only 4 people in the raft, it's always exciting! Calder had fun in his kayak as well. Enjoy the rest of the summer and we'll hopefully see you again. Terry

Berg Lake drop-off

Great company: professional, friendly, good pilots, very organized and great people skills. We took the heli up to Berg Lake Campground with our heavy backpacks then on the return placed only our heavy backpacks on the heli and hiked out with our daypacks. We drove to the Heli office to pick up our packs after their closing hours. They will unlock the office at any hour so you can retrieve your pack and drive back to your destination. Very convenient as every person's descent time is different. Another fine example of their excellent customer service. I highly recommend this company..

Beautiful dogs and owners who really care for their animals!

When I decided to visit Canada I saw many dog sledding attractions but was reluctant to book a tour because I was concerned about the possibility of poor animal treatment.I did research on some companies and became convinced from the website that this was the right place for me and that the animals were loved and respected, so I booked. The tour did not disappoint. The dogs were beautiful, the sledding was fun and the staff were excellent. I spoke to the owner, Amanda, and her passion and love for the animals is very obvious to see.Thanks for the awesome time!Ofir
