Overview

Sit back, relax and take in the serenity and peaceful beauty of the Canadian Rockies! Rocky Mountain Raft Tours offers environmentally friendly, scenic, guided float trips on the Bow River within the Banff town-site. Our rafting trips are suitable for all ages. Seniors and young families are more than welcome to join this easy sightseeing trip. Our rafts are customized with elevated floorboards, so your shoes even stay dry! Our guests often bring cameras to catch the scenery as they float by. It’s also a good idea to bring a day-pack, a beverage, and a jacket or sweater. Warm casual clothing is appropriate for our tours.

Great way to spend an hour, and completely safe. Upon arrival you're fitted out with life jackets, but really the water is very shallow in most parts. Don't panic, it isn't Rapids. It's a comfortable float down river, with a couple of very mild little...More

Well run river tour. We took the leisurely float and our guide was knowledgable and fun. There were several forest fires nearby so you'll notice the smoke in some of these photos.
