July 19 - Reading the River with author Kevin Fedarko.
The Chilko-Chilcotin-Fraser is unmatched in its awesome diversity and enormous stretches of Class IV whitewater. The trip begins with a spectacular scenic flight over the glaciated Coast Range into Chilko Lake Resort, on the edge of a glacial lake. Our Chilko River adventure winds through lush alpine forests, narrow canyons, high desert plateaus and skyscraping hoodoos, then ends 3,000 vertical feet lower and one week later on the Fraser River, the lifeblood of Canada's largest river system. The route runs through Lava, Big John and Farwell canyons and includes the continent's longest stretch of commercially navigable whitewater.
We think clebrated author Pam Houston sums it up best:
"What I love most about the river isn''t the challenge of the rapids, isn''t the drop dead gorgeous scenery, isn''t even getting intimate with a place you can''t get to in a car (though I love all those things too). What I love best about being on the river is the way you move through space at a speed humans were meant to move, and the whole day becomes about making your miles, making your meals, making a comfortable, if temporary, home."
