We had a wonderful time on the Slocan River with NWR Co. The staff are very professional and fun as well. This was one of the highlights of our road trip this summer. Strongly recommend it.

The staff were exceptional, the scenery was magnificent and the trip was a blast. We really enjoyed all aspects of this trip, from the bus ride to the rapids.

Booking was easy. Guide staff was very enthusiastic. The weather was perfect, the water was warm. Personally little more rapids would've been nice so perhaps going earlier in the season when the water is higher would've yielded a more intense ride but not complaining.
