Lytton

Bursting with magnificent scenery, Lytton is situated at the meeting of the Thompson and Fraser Rivers. Cutting a treacherous path through jagged mountains, the Fraser River has created what is, arguably, one of the finest river canyon landscapes in the world. Its extraordinarily diverse geography makes Lytton a top choice for adventurers. Known as the “Rafting Capital of Canada”, the village of Lytton offers challenging river routes for rafting and kayaking in excellent white water. A wonderful gateway to outdoor recreation, Lytton is as rich in history as it is in exciting adventure.
