Rappelling

Intro to rock climbing

This is an excellent confidence building exercise ideally suited for children, teens and active adults. No prior experience is necessary. 

Our beginner rock climbing wall is 30 feet high, perfect for people that are a bit nervous about heights, first-timers, teens and children.


Rock climbing is a popular Club REO activity.  Everyone in the family will have the opportunity to make this summer vacation an exciting adventure.



Hiking

REO offers two beautiful hikes that are accessible from our resort, the Nature Trail and the Canyon Trail, .  They range from easy to moderate and last from thirty minutes to one hour.  These are perfect activities to add on to your adventure vacations and a good way to explore the surrounding area.

The Nature Trail starts at REO and follows the river upstream past the private beach and numerous rapids including Last Chance, Rock n Roll, and the Sleeper Hole. The Trail loops and follows the high ground back to REO.

The Nature Trail is best appreciated with one of our Interpreter guides who will explain the flora, fauna, geology and biology of the Nahatlatch valley. For those who wish to enjoy the solitude of the river on their own, the Nature Trail is open any time for casual walks.

The Nature Trail takes 30 minutes round trip as a hike and 15 minutes by running or biking.

Trail rating: Easy

The Canyon Trail starts at REO and follows the Nahatlatch River downstream as it cascades and carves through a shale-rock canyon enroute to the Fraser River. This impressive hike discovers the hidden beauty of a canyon only accessible by trail.

The Canyon Trail is one of the most beautiful short hikes you will ever take. The jade-green pools of the Nahatlatch alternate with boulder-strewn rapids wedged between towering rock walls. The rush of the river is mesmerizing. Several waterfalls cascade into the river.

We recommend that guests take this hike with our guides, as they know the river and canyon intimately. The trail borders on the edge of the canyon and the raging river. Guests must be careful to stay on the trail. A roundtrip hike into the canyon and back to REO is between one and two hours.

Trail rating: Moderate




Ropes Course

Low Ropes

REO's low ropes course is ideal for team building activities.  Whether it be giving a group the opportunity to get to know each other better, bringing a corporate group closer, or simply having some fun with friends, REO's Low Ropes Course is the perfect venue.  It is set up on REO property in a wilderness setting.  We currently have 8 low ropes elements.  These include:  Log Challenge, Rope Swing, Island Hopping, Spider Web, Cable Traverse, Big Trust Fall, Standard Trust Fall, and Wind in the Willows.

Team runParticipants work together as a team to achieve a common goal.  Whether helping someone across a cable or falling backwards off a 6 foot high rock there are always ways to challenge groups and individuals.  All activities can be modified for difficulty depending on the group and group sizes.  The entire course is designed to be used by small or large groups.



Team-building Combo

When you combine 3 mini adventures such as intro to rock rappelling, low ropes course and hiking you have what's known as REO's Team-building Combo.  There is nothing better than spending a day with co-workers, class mates or friends doing things that are outside everyone's element.  These activities are a great way to get to know each other better, emphasize the importance of working together to reach common goals and are just plain fun.  This is an excellent add-on to any corporate or student retreat.

 


Inflatable Kayaking

AvailKayak instructionable: July - August

The intro to inflatable kayaking trip is available on the rivers and lakes near REO. Usually we offer kayaking trips on the Nahatlatch in late July and August.  Whitewater kayaking is the ultimate step up from rafting and is very popular with our Club REO multi-day vacations.

We use inflatable kayaks that are easy to paddle, stable, and very forgiving with beginners. You will love running rapids right away without days of practice on the lake learning to roll a kayak (as required for standard hard-shell kayaks). If you fall out of an inflatable kayak, you only have to turn it over and jump back in.

Our kayaking instructors are experts with many years of experience running rivers throughout the world. They will give you hands-on instruction and be by your side as you run the rapids. In case of a swim, they will be there to assist you. Obviously, participants must have good swimming ability.




TKayaking Nahatlatchhe instructors will determine which sections of river are suitable based on the lowest skill level in each group of paddlers (usually 3-5 paddlers per instructor). Thus, groups with children or beginners with no paddling experience will often do only the easiest sections. Groups of active adults with paddling experience, on the other hand, may be able to do most of the middle section of the Nahatlatch, which has numerous Class 3 rapids.





Sturgeon Fishing

Sturgeon fishBest: July - August

REO and the Boothroyd First Nations offer an exciting adventure: fishing trips and charters for giant white sturgeon on the Fraser River. This amazing trip includes a 17 km float trip on the mighty Fraser River upstream of the wild canyon section. This river section is Class 1 with no significant rapids, but is a beautiful float trip. We will float the Fraser to our special fishing beaches that can only be reached through Boothroyd land. Here we will meet our native guides who will set us up for sturgeon fishing.

flowers On a recent trip, we caught and released three sturgeons in just two hours of fishing. The largest fish was about 3.5 feet in length, weighed in at 40 pounds, and took about 15 minutes to reel in. The largest sturgeon fish ever caught from the eddies and pools above the Fraser River Canyon was 6 feet in length and took over an hour to land!

Sturgeons are giant fish with a very long life cycle. Many of the larger sturgeon are estimated to be many generations old. Given the long reproductive cycle, sturgeon fishing on the Fraser River is catch and release only. However, sturgeons are relatively abundant in the pools that we access. Based on our success to date, we will guarantee to catch and release at least one sturgeon on your fishing trip.

BC fishing licenses are required by regulations to fish for sturgeon. Day licenses are available in Boston Bar and Hope, BC.
