Things to Do

Riverbend Bed and Breakfast Guesthouse is situated only a few minutes walk from the Vedder river in the beautiful Chilliwack River Valley, known as a world class salmon fishing, river rafting, kayaking and hiking area. We are approximately 10 minutes from town (Sardis) and 25 minutes from the city of Chilliwack. 

Our proximity to the Vedder River makes it ideal accommodations for fishermen. Not only are we moments from world-class fishing on the Vedder River, but we are only a 25 minute drive from Fraser River sturgeon fishing and salmon fishing. Ask us to recommend some fishing guides!

Nearby activities include Vedder River fishing, swimming at Chilliwack or Cultus lakes, taking a rafting trip with Chilliwack River Rafting (2 km drive away) or Hyak Rafting, sturgeon fishing on the Fraser River, or spending a day at Cultus lake waterslides, all within minutes. A little further away is the Hell's Gate Air Tram, Harrison Hot Springs, Bridal Falls, or the many beautiful gardens at Minter Gardens.

It is a peaceful, quiet area surrounded by trees, mountains, lakes and rivers. A semi-wilderness or nature retreat offering sheer rest, relaxation, and/or adventure!

" What do a Sturgeon, a plane crash, and a hot meal have in common? They are all linked to The Riverbend Guesthouse! While staying at this quaint Chilliwack B&B, hire a guide and learn to fish in a world class fishing area for Sturgeon. These timeless fish weigh in over hundreds of pounds. A hike up Slesse Mountain, just behind the guesthouse, will present you with a view of the site of a 1960’s plane crash, and of course, hot meals are waiting for you each morning as you begin your adventures.
