Eco Friendly Resort

“What's not to like about REO rafting? Bryan and his crew are simply exceptional: dedicated, friendly, super competent, and always doing everything they can to look after their customers.”

Preserving this Stunning Location


REO Rafting & Yoga Resort was founded in 1983 after Bryan Fogelman discovered the most fun and exciting river in BC, the Nahatlatch. In the beginning, REO was comprised of an optimistic young man and a couple of rafts. Today it is a family run operation with staff from all over the world.
 

Bryan’s vision was to build a resort on the beautiful property overlooking the Nahatlatch river. He turned overgrown bush into a beautiful wilderness retreat. During the development of the resort, protecting and sustaining the environment was always an important factor.
Many of the buildings around the resort are run on solar power. We have been progressively increasing our use of solar power and hope to have the entire resort operating on renewable energy in the near future.

Reusable Materials

REO reuses natural materials whenever possible. Rather than cutting down trees we search for ones that have  fallen naturally in the surrounding forest and use them as frames for the glamping tents, fences and railings around the resort.

Recycling Programs

Recycling is now available thanks to recent upgrades in our nearby communities. We are excited to announce that you will see new systems in place to minimize the output of waste from the resort.
 

Conservation

At REO, we do not have concrete or paved pathways, we prefer to preserve the natural setting of the forest and to minimize negative impacts on the environment. Our staff put a lot of effort into leveling and maintaining our walkways.

Natural Spring Water

The drinking water that is available at our resort is from a natural spring that goes through a healthy purification system located on our property. The spring water is sourced from the surrounding mountains meaning it is clean, fresh, and free from toxins.
 


REO Rafting Resort’s dedication to sustaining the environment and reducing our ecological footprint will continue for many years to come.


Salmon Rescue 1990’s

In the 1990’s there was a massive rock slide in the class 4/5 Nahatlatch Canyon section of the Nahatlatch River. The slide was so big that a lake started to form on the other side. In late August, Bryan and the resort manager, Mark de Koning, noticed that thousands of salmon started to pool into this area and were unable to find a way upstream to lay their eggs. REO contacted the department of fisheries who got us in touch with the local indigenous communities. The local people came with dip nets (15ft poles with a net on the end) to help the salmon move upstream around the slide. REO built a trail from their resort to the area so they were able to safely reach the salmon. While they were dip netting the fish, REO provided downstream safety by having rafts and qualified guides ready for any possible incidents. Everything went smoothly and they were able to save 3000+ salmon, ensuring the survival of the next generation of the species.
