After a relaxing sleep and a buffet breakfast we board the coach bus for a trip up the Scenic Highway Seven and then on to the Trans Canada HWY. This mountainous section of Trans Canada Highway was completed in the 1960’s and has a series of 7 tunnels you will pass through.
Arriving at Tuckkwiowhum you will be greeted by a First Nations guide. A tour of the heritage village, a traditionally inspired lunch buffet as well as a great gift shop full of locally made items are the highlights. A greater understanding of the Nlaka’pamux, local first nations people and culture will be the result of your visit.
Iconic Fraser Canyon scenery, the power of the river, evidence of the Cariboo Wagon Road, the CN and CP railways crossing the river high above, First Nations fishing sites passed down through generations. These are just some of the highlights of the Fraser River float from Lytton to Boston Bar. Our large power rafts are comfortable and capable of navigating this turbulent section.
We stop at a Chinese mining site. This site, part of what is know as Johnson Flats is seldom visited and was mined in the 1860’s. Mossy corridors of boulders and mining ruins show the methods used during the Fraser River’s booming Goldrush.
You will return to Tuckkwiowhum for a short visit ( washrooms and change your shoes if necessary). The return bus ride will have you more interested in the river below and possible planning of another section of the Fraser to raft. Enjoy the hospitality of the town of Harrison Hot Springs and make your own plans for dinner. The Harrison Hotspring pools are open till 10 or 11 giving you ample time for a soak after dinner before a relaxing sleep Breakfast buffet included the next morning.
