Myth-Buster

Myth: Rafting is only for risk takers Busted: Everyone from little kids to 95 year olds, the meekest of men, and even people who are wheelchair bound have been on rafting trips in B.C. Most operators offer one or two float trips, which are little more than a drift with the current on a moving lake. All you need is an interest in nature and being outdoors. Call the company you plan to go with to find out what they recommend for a mellow option.
