Our tours are based out of the Exchamsiks River Provincial Park site, located on Hwy 16 about 35 minutes west of Terrace or 55 minutes east of Prince Rupert. We can pick you up in either community or you can meet us at the park site which is the launch point for your river adventure
All our tours are day trips which include a shore lunch of wild BC sockeye salmon cooked over the open fire, salads, drinks and dessert. Your tour and river adventure can last from 2 to 8 hours.
Journey by Jet Boat...Journey by jetboat into the Exchamsiks River Valley for stunning views of waterfalls, glacial ice, towering rock walls and chance sightings of local wildlife.
Touch a Waterfall...While touring the upper river, walk up a glacier fed stream and stand in the spray of a crystal clear waterfall, falling hundreds of feet from the mountain above!
Wildlife Sightings...We can't promise you'll see wildlife, but we have had frequent sightings of bald eagles, bear, moose, beaver, river otters, wolves and mountain goats.
Nature Walks & Talks...The Park site allows you the opportunity to walk amongst the majestic 600 year old Cedar and Sitka Spruce trees. Your up river adventure will stop at various points of interest allowing our local guides an opportunity to describe some of the geological, cultural and wildlife values of this sensitive ecosystem.
Enjoy a Salmon Barbecue...In the pristine upper Exchamsiks valley, enjoy a feast of delicious wild Sockeye salmon prepared over an open fire. Dine and relax by the shore, take a swim in the glacial fed river or just sit back and enjoy the amazing view prior to your return down river to the park site.
A Little History...The Exchamsiks River Provincial Park was established in 1956 and serves important conservation and recreation roles within British Columbia. The park protects one of the last known unlogged Sitka Spruce - Salmonberry regions. The forest is unique since it is easily accessible and contains one of the oldest stands of this type. The larger spruce trees you will be viewing the park are estimated to be at least 600 years old. The trails in the park have been developed in a way that explains ecology, provides excellent interpretation and public education opportunities outlining the impact of human activities and restoration efforts.
