The Food

It all starts with your arrival at our office where you will be met with fresh coffee or juice and a delicious baked snack. The food we offer on our riverside picnics is of the highest quality. Varied, healthy and filling. Most often organic and home grown or, at least, locally sourced. From a scenic raft-accessed vantage point along the river, you will discover a new found appetite! Special dietary requirements are easily catered for with notice at the time of booking. 

After the September Long Weekend, we offer only the Lower River Scenic Family Adventure to allow our guests the viewing pleasure of thousands of spawning Kokanee salmon and the wildlife attracted by their numbers.
