Kananaskis River Rafting Adventure with Transport
This easy-going rafting trip is a great way for families and groups to sample the thrills of whitewater. Along the way, 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. Start your rafting adventure with an optional pickup in Banff or Canmore. Check with your tour operator for exact pickup times. Then enjoy the short scenic ride as it winds its way through the Canadian countryside. Once you arrive, listen as your guides share safety instructions and paddle techniques for your time on the river. Then jump aboard to start your journey. This part of the river runs calm, allowing you the chance to admire the lovely forest environment and soaring mountains that line the banks. Make sure to watch for the area’s local wildlife, including eagles, bear, and deer strolling along the riverway. Just when things seem to be slowing down, the river comes to life, kicking up a series of frothy rapids that get your heart pumping. Hang tight and listen for your guide’s instructions as he helps you navigate the whitewater. Your day ends with snacks, high-fives and optional return transportation to your hotel. This is a seasonal tour running mid-May through mid-September.
