2-Day Thompson River Fantasy Island Getaway

Where: Lytton, British Columbia
Price for: 1 Participant
Prepare to be immersed in British Columbia’s great outdoors on this 2-day adventure. Set up overnight camp on 5-acre Fantasy Island located in the middle of the Thompson River, enjoy a gourmet barbeque and an evening around the campfire. The next morning you’re rafting down the Thompson River combining fantastic scenery with roaring waves.

This spectacular 2-day adventure covers 80 km (49.7 mi) on the Thompson River from Ashcroft to Lytton.

From Ashcroft to the private camp on "Fantasy Island", the Thompson River boasts awe-inspiring scenery including the grandeur of Black Canyon's sheer lava walls. The river’s upper stretches provide playful rapids for those who wish to try one of the inflatable kayaks; always a highlight of the trip.

You will spend the night on Fantasy Island, a unique 5-acre island in the middle of the river. Here there is time to relax and set up camp while your guides prepare a delicious gourmet barbecue, including special appetizers, and fresh baked desserts. Following dinner, you’ll spend an entertaining evening around the campfire under the starlit sky.

The next morning, you will float through the small town of Spences Bridge, home to herds of Big Horn sheep. The rafts are unloaded before lunch and your gear is transported back to the Lytton base, making the rafts light and maneuverable to challenge the river's largest rapids. You’ll run all the famous rapids, including Devil’s Kitchen, the Frog and the 18th Hole, finally arriving in Lytton.
