This day trip from Banff or Canmore will get you into a raft and cruising down the turquoise waters of the Kananaskis, one of Alberta’s most pristine waterways. This excursion is an ideal introduction to the thrill of white-water rafting, great for families or groups. Spot local wildlife and soak up Canada’s unparalleled beauty as you cruise down this beautiful river. Includes hotel pickup and drop-off.What You Can ExpectAfter pickup from your Banff or Canmore hotel, take a brief but picturesque ride through the Canadian countryside to your destination. Listen as the professional guides explain how to paddle and give safety instructions for your epic adventure down the Kananaskis River, which originates in the Canadian Rockies and flows 46 miles (74 km) before emptying into the Bow River. Relax as you cruise along the calm parts of the river, taking in the scenery of craggy mountains and verdant trees. Keep an eye out for wildlife like eagles and other birds soaring overhead and bears or deer walking along the banks of the river. But don’t relax for too long — this is still an adventurous river. Listen as your guide directs you to navigate the periodic rapids. Hang tight as you bump up and down over the white water as if it were an aquatic bronco. When your rafting adventure comes to an end, you’ll be rewarded with snacks and high-fives, before relaxing on the ride back to your hotel. Please note: This is a seasonal tour running mid-May through mid-September. Cancellation Policy Package is cancellable prior to three days from the commencement of the service. Customer Reviews Louise B 30-Jun-2017 This white water rafting trip is exactly as the web site describes. It is AWESOME!! Suitable for all ages - the staff are extremely well trained, friendly and engaging. Their attention to safety is excellent. Our raft captain was Tim and he is spectacular - fun, interesting and included everyone in conversation. My family highly recommend this trip - and if possible, request to be in Tim's raft!! sabby0502 25-Sep-2016 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. Jamie M 14-Sep-2016 Caroline was an awesome Kananaskis River Rafting Adventure tour guide! Benita H 08-Aug-2016 Marshall our safety instructor was awesome! Informative, knowledgable, witty. He also happened to be our raft's guide. Skilled, friendly, witty. So much fun! One of my bucket list items! Will definitely go with Chinook Rafting again! Steve W 31-Jul-2016 Fantastic fun. Just what we needed.
