Canyon Whitewater + Lunch
Shoot moderate rapids, dodge boulders and squeeze through the tight spots while team-paddling. The Sulphur Canyon plunges 300 feet down then twists and turns all the way to the Sulphur Gates; Grande Cache’s top scenic spot. Between giggles and shouts, magic happens as your group comes together. You can find out more about what is involved in this exciting adventure here.
This trip includes a riverside lunch where you can warm-up or cool-down with some hot chocolate or iced tea then choose from a selection of deli meats, cheese and buns with a side of potato salad and fresh veggies. This menu can be altered to accommodate different dietary requirements (vegetarian, gluten-free etc). If you would like to upgrade your riverside lunch to something a little more decadent then you can view our other meal package options here.

ITINERARY: Meet us at the Rafting House AT your trip time (map). Finish payments, sign the waiver/medical form, change into rafting gear, and hop on the bus. It’s 3km to the river, plus a 5 minute walk into the canyon. The trail is steep, those with walking impairments or vertigo may require assistance. At the river, there’s a safety talk, and we check life jackets and helmets before launching. Guests sit on the sides and paddle! Kids under 12 sit in the middle. About 2/3 of the trip is on the Sulphur River. At the Sulphur Gates we float into the Smoky River. Here, younger kids can paddle, and the water guns come out! Brave guests can float beside the boat! We float for 30-45 minutes on the Smoky River. The trip ends at the ‘Blue’ Bridge south of Grande Cache where there will be a tasty riverside lunch waiting for you. After you have re-fuelled, it’s only a 5-minute drive back to the change rooms!
