From Ashcroft to our private camp on "Fantasy Island", the Thompson boasts awe-inspiring scenery including the grandeur of Black Canyon's sheer lava walls. The upper stretches provide playful rapids for those who wish to try one of the inflatable kayaks; always a highlight of the trip.
You will spend the night on Fantasy Island, a unique 5-acre island in the middle of the river. Here there is time to relax and set up camp while your guides prepare a fabulous gourmet barbecue, including special appetizers, and fresh baked desserts. Following dinner, spend an entertaining evening around the campfire under the starlit sky.
The next morning, you will float through the small town of Spences Bridge, home to herds of Big Horn sheep. Before lunch, the rafts are unloaded and your gear is transported back to the Lytton base, making the rafts light and maneuverable to challenge the river's largest rapids. We run all the famous rapids, including the Frog, Devil's Kitchen, and the 18th Hole, finally arriving in Lytton.
This trip will awaken all of your senses - fantastic scenery, roaring waves, and tantalizing meals, all combined with the open air of British Columbia's great outdoors!
