You know the feeling. After months of spending all of your time indoors, you’re itching to go play outside.
Luckily, Canadian Outback Rafting Co. is ready to welcome outdoor explorers and adventure seekers back into the great outdoors this summer for a local escape in the Squamish Valley.
In accordance with provincial health recommendations, Canadian Outback Rafting Co., which is currently open to sea-to-sky-locals, aims to expand their reopening to include all B.C. residents at the start of June.
And, given the nature of rafting being set in wide-open spaces, this outdoor activity can be done with physical distancing in mind for guests and staff.
Committed to maintaining their extremely high standards of health and safety, the guidelines outlined in their safe operating procedures is their top priority. Physical distance will be practiced at the base as well as conducted in each raft with two groups of two. In terms of cleaning protocols, all gear is disinfected through a five step process and will not be used for several days between trips.
White water river rafting allows riders to be one with the rapids and the surrounding mountains landscape while in good company. No matter if you’re a beginner or more experienced, this is the perfect adventure to embark on with your small social circle, whether that includes your roommates or your immediate family.
