This easy-going rafting trip is a great way for families and groups to sample the thrills of whitewater. Along the way, you’ll enjoy local wildlife sightings and the serene outdoor beauty of the Kananaskis River, a 46-mile waterway that flows from the Rockies into Banff’s Bow River.

This was the first family river rafting experience for us and we greatly enjoyed it. The guides were knowledgeable, friendly, courteous and had a great sense of humor. It was safe yet thrilling for us first-timers. Special mention goes out to our guide, Adam, without whom the experience would have been incomplete.
