Río Fraser

Fraser River, Jasper, Alberta, Canada

Informacion practica

Se puede acceder al río Fraser por algunas de las principales carreteras de la Columbia Británica, ya que corren paralelas al río. Hay muchos parques y senderos que brindan acceso recreativo al río en toda su extensión. La primavera es la mejor época para actividades como el rafting en aguas bravas debido al deshielo de los glaciares que eleva el nivel del río, pero hay muchas actividades recreativas disponibles durante todo el año.

White-Water Rafting on the Fraser River One of the best ways to take in the beauty and excitement of the Fraser River is on a white-water rafting trip. The dynamic river offers numerous different rafting opportunities ranging from scenic floats to adrenaline-inducing rapids. Most rafters head to the Hell’s Gate section outside of Vancouver. However, if you are looking for a scenic, less-busy stretch of the river, book a rafting trip that begins at the base of Mount Robson.
