The Ram River is a hidden gem.  The only reason it’s not paddled more is that it’s hard work.  A lot of hard work.  We heard of a raft company using it as an end of season trip for the raft guides.  And even with a trip comprising entirely of professional raft guides they were planning on hiring a helicopter to portage the last canyon.  It is this canyon that basically rules out the Ram River from being commercially viable.

That’s fine though.  It just makes it all the more exclusive for the rest of us.
