Whitewater Trips on the World’s Greatest Rivers

Why you should experience world class whitewater the Boreal River way

We call it enlightened travel.

Boreal River experiences pair all the laughter and joy of a group expedition with the comfort and freedom of a fully custom trip. No two of our guests have ever had the same experience, and yet there’s a fierce consistency to this: We take you there. Every time. We’ll help you turn inward while grounded in connection to the people and the forest, rocks, water and world around you.

How? We’ve crafted a richness of offerings that lets you to tune in to whatever calls you in a given moment. A quiet chat with an old friend, or a new one. Collecting water samples with an expert ecologist, learning something new about the ecosystem while you do. Landscape painting. Backcountry baking. Time alone with your thoughts on the sun-warmed rocks. All options for you to flow into and out of as you are moved.

Our packrafting trips are high adventure experience with a focus on exploring backcountry and developing the whitewater skills to navigate your own boat down the river.

On rafting trips, our expert whitewater guides are joined by ecologists and Indigenous teachers who weave history, culture, art and ecosystem throughout every experience.

We specialize in planning, so you don’t have to. Our rock-solid safety and logistics mean even on the most remote expeditions, all you have to do is show up ready to be challenged to the extent that you’re craving, knowing that industry-leading experts are with you every step of the way.

You’ll leave exhilarated, empowered, and steeped in a beauty and truth that leaves you searching for words to share it with loved ones back home.
