Toby Creek

 Toby Creek is born from high alpine glaciers capping the Purcell's. It carves a turquoise ribbon through mountain wilderness and steep canyons as it rushes downstream to join the Columbia River.

This classic whitewater rafting adventure offers thrills and excitement through the twists and turns of the class I-III rafting section. This is a great trip for the first time whitewater rafter or the seasoned professional. Trip length approximately 2 hours.

 Toby Creek trips are based at Panorama Mountain Resort, just 30 minutes west of Invermere, B.C.  If you are coming for a whitewater rafting trip from the direction of Fairmont Hot Springs, enjoy the stunning drive about 35 minutes door to door!
