Took the Rocky Mountain Raft Tour in Banff. Lots of fun and a very smooth ride. Gorgeous views. You get an added appreciation for the strong currents. Beautiful water that looks like the Caribbean!

We rafted with our children on the 1 hour hoodoo. Highly recommend. This was fun, informative and nice to get away from crowds into the beautiful Banff. Our guide (orginaly from South Africa) was excellent and made the trip very enjoyable.

Enjoyable tour for both my husband and I and our 2 young kids. Kim was a friendly and knowledgeable guide and the scenery was beautiful. The river is fast moving at times but was an overall calm ride. Highly recommend.
