REO Rafting Resort is located right on the edge of the beautiful jade-green Nahatlatch River. All of our cabins and camping areas are located on a ledge overlooking the Class 4 rapids of the Nahatlatch. Sleep to the sound of the rushing river! It will be hard to believe that you are only 2.5 hours from the Greater Vancouver area given the privacy, wilderness seclusion, and rugged beauty of our resort.
Whether you are staying in your own tent, enjoying one of our riverside cabin tents or log cabin, your stay at REO will be one to remember. New for 2007, we are offering luxury themed cabin tents. After a long day rafting, have a nice massage, soak in the hot tub and drop into your own king size paradise and sleep to the sound of the river flowing past.
REO is the original whitewater rafting adventure resort in British Columbia with 25 years of unparalleled customer service and safety. With an international reputation for quality and approach to safety, REO has successfully provided adventures to over 65,000 guests from around the world.
REO Founder and President, Bryan Fogelman, pioneered rafting on many rivers in British Columbia including the first commercial runs on the Nahatlatch, Nahatlatch Canyon, Stein, and Elaho. REO has had a long tradition of excellence and our river guides are among the best in Canada. REO operates on the steepest commercially rafted river in Canada (the Stein) that requires a very high skill level and strong leadership.
Our Nahatlatch river trips offer the most whitewater for the buck, hands down! The Nahatlatch offers 37 Class 3 & 4 rapids in just 11 kilometers (7 miles). Despite its continuous nature, the river has no unrunnable sections and we have successfully offered trips on the river to ages 8 to 80!
The Nahatlatch is not only a premier whitewater river, it also features one of the best summer climates in Canada. Our summer highs in July and August average 30 C (88 F) and the nights feature star-studded skies. All of our trips conveniently begin and end at our rivers edge resort. Our trips take-out right at our resort and the hot tub is never more than 30 seconds away from the end of your trip!
