Kumsheen Rafting Resort

Hosting guests from British Columbia, Canada, and around the world, Kumsheen Rafting Resort is a unique, upscale whitewater rafting and adventure resort located in the heart of the Scenic Fraser Canyon, a beautiful 3 hour drive from Vancouver, BC.

We’re known across Canada and around the world for the friendly, smooth, and hassle-free way we run our adventure resort and rafting operation. In over 30 years, we’ve taken a quarter million people, from 7 years old to 93, for one of the best experiences of their lives, and we’ve brought them all back, wet but safe!

River Rafting Trips & Adventure Programs

River rafting trips feature the big waves, warm water, and the splendid climate offered by the Thompson and Fraser Rivers. Activities are staged from the beautiful resort, conveniently located on the Trans Canada Highway on the outskirts of the little community of Lytton BC.

BC’s favourite since 1973, Kumsheen also specializes in High School Dry Grad programs, five-day Family Adventure and Teen Camps, a Raft Guide School and Fraser River Sturgeon Fishing charters.

Over 70% of the 10,000 guests that visit Kumsheen annually have been before or have been referred by their close friends and family. They come back because of the activities, because they are treated like friends, and because they get everything that has been promised.

Kumsheen Rafting and Adventure Resort

Kumsheen is a special place, with special people, situated in a special setting overlooking the Thompson River and White Canyon near Lytton, just a short drive from Vancouver, British Columbia. In addition to a variety of whitewater adventures, there is much to do, much to experience; there are so many reasons why our guests come back again and again.

Here are just a few of the activities: learn to rock climb and rappel, discover the basics of kayaking, enjoy a bike tour in the mountains above our resort, hang around a campfire, play disc golf, 3-on-3 basketball, or beach volleyball.

Or, take a desert-plant nature walk, relax around the pool or spa, meet new friends at Gilligan’s our poolside beverage bar, savor the
epicurean delights in our Cutting Board restaurant,
or challenge friends to a game of giant outdoor chess.

A Family Operation

Kumsheen Raft Adventures Ltd. was founded by BC’s rafting pioneer Bernie Fandrich in 1973, and is still owned and operated by the Fandrich family.

It’s all about quality family time: meeting people, exploring together, playing games together, sitting around the campfire together, and enjoying meals together.
