The Babine is  about 100 km (60 mi) long, narrow and fast. Spectacular whitewater sections, impressive canyons, and clear water all highlight the special nature of this rafting trip.

The river lies within the traditional territories of the Ned’u'ten and Gitxsan peoples. They have used, to present days, the area for their livelihood and spiritual connections. Their long connection to the Babine is witnessed in old trails and culturally modified trees.

The river is a critical seasonal feeding location for a grizzly bear population. There is a high seasonal bald eagle presence, plus moose, wolf, coyote, otter, mink, and other species. For those who enjoy fishing, the Babine is home for some of the largest rainbow trout and steelhead in the world.
