thompson 3Raft the Thompson with REO

  • One of the best Aug and Sep paddle rafting trips in all of Canada. Enjoy huge roller coaster waves, desert canyon scenery, hot climate and warm water for swimming.
  • Why is Aug and Sep the best time to raft the Thompson? Unlike most rivers in North America, the Thompson is too high to paddle raft until the river level drops. During the sizzling summer heat (canyon temperatures soar to 40+ C / 100 + F), the river levels begin to fall and the waves actually become bigger and more defined! 
  • REO uses paddle rafts with 8-9 paddlers while many companies take motor rafts with up to 22 passengers in one raft. Smaller rafts are more responsive and provide an exhilarating ride!
  • We also offer oar rafts with paddle assist, ideal for families and those that would rather enjoy the scenery and not paddle too hard. Recommended for ages 12+ (we make exceptions for youth with previous experience and/or strong swimming ability)

Thompson Day Trips include

  • thompson1 professional REO river guide for every 8 guests (no noisy motors on our rafts!)
  • All rafting and safety equipment
  • Wetsuit & booties (optional) for your paddling pleasure
  • Catered lunch & river snacks featuring fresh seasonal fruit, sweets, and beverages
  • Bus transportation from Lytton BC meet spot (call for custom group departures from Boston Bar BC)
  • Trips depart Lytton BC at 11:00 am; return at 4:30 pm; arrive 10 min early for check-in/waivers
