At Skookum Adventures we're adventure lovers first and foremost, and we reflect that in our private, small group river excursions.  We take full advantage of living and breathing the life and energy of the Skookumchuck Creek as it rushes through our backyard. We maximize fun, and excitement by catering our river adventures to all river levels offering Rafting Inflatable Kayaking and Whitewater Tubing as the season progresses and the river levels come down. Our private river access and intimate knowledge of the creek, allows us to give all our guests world class adventures throughout the seasons.  We hope that you choose a wild escape to Skookum Adventures for your next wilderness experience in the Kootenays!

*Whitewater Rafting is dependent on water levels and is typically offered May, June and July. When the water is lower typically in July, August and September we offer our spectacular Whitewater Tubing trips.  Please feel free to contact us with questions regarding water levels and what trip is right for you.*

With its name rooted in the native Chinook dialect, Skookum meaning "Strong" or "Powerful" and chuck meaning "waters" or "rapids", Skookumchuck Creek AKA "The Skooks" is our most popular tour, and is truly a local classic, and quietly a world class run.  We specialize in small group tours, bachelor/bachelorette parties, team building adventures and much more, using the all the natural wonders around us..  We are also fully mobile, with transport and equipment having the potential to travel anywhere in BC to accommodate your next private small-group adventure tour. Your next adventure experience isn't necessarily where we are, its where you want to go!
