About
Canadian Rockies Rafting has been rafting the rivers of Alberta and British Columbia for more than 25 years. It's no wonder we're known to offer the best excursions and experiences in the Bow Valley! Our most popular trips are our half-day whitewater rafting excursions on the Bow River - Horseshoe Canyon and on the Kananaskis River. Other activities we offer are Bow River Nature Floats in the evenings. It's a great way to wind down with beautiful scenery and opportunity for wildlife spotting. Don't forget to inquire about our great deals on group reservations - we LOVE to host birthdays, bachelor/bachelorette parties, corporate groups, youth groups and more!

The trip from start to finish was amazing. Our trip leader and guide Nick was excellent! He was well organized, funny, and incredibly kind. It was our first time rafting so we were a little nervous but Nick’s confidence and interest in everyone’s safety calmed our nerves and made for a great experience. You can tell that guy truly loves his job! The bus ride to and from the river was nice and short. The river was amazing for a first-timer, not too crazy but not boring. Not to mention the scenery was beautiful! Would highly recommend Nick as your guide and this company for your rafting adventure. Thank you Nick and team!

Great views. Water levels were good considering it was September. Our guide Nick was safety conscious and entertaining. The shuttle was short both getting there and on our return back to our vehicles.

Beautiful trip. Great for a family trip. Nick our guide was both knowledgeable and funny. I forgot the names of the other two guides on our trip but they was the all interacted was fun. Grace drives one hell of a bus. Looking to returning with some higher water levels for some bigger adventure! Thanks again!

The trip was incredible. I was nervous before we started but Nick was fantastic. He inspired confidence and was so well organised but at the same time was so funny and great company. Would highly recommend to all.

Nick was a fantastic rafting guide: knowledgeable, fun and entertaining! The water and river scenery were beautiful. The short bus rides to & from the starting and ending points were a plus too!

We did rafting in 2006 in Ottawa and had to take the kids now that they are old enough.
The rafting wasn’t as adrenaline filled as the last one we did but non the less we had an amazing time.
Our leader for the raft Mikella was great. She chatted to us all and got the kids really involved.
The kids loved getting wet and swimming a bit in the river.
Going on the yellow school bus to and from the river was pretty cool too!

Hi Gibo86! Haha, yes, getting to ride in a yellow school bus is an added perk and pretty cool. Glad to hear you all had an amazing time out there with Mikella and the rest of the team. Thank you for taking the time to review and share your experience.

Our family of 5 with 3 teenage boys thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Equipment and instructions were efficiently given out with warmth and humour, and a school is ride from the casino parking lot got us to the put-in spot. Geoff, our guide was awesome, funny and took great care to ensure the littlest kids on the raft were engaged and looked after since the coldness of the water made hands cold after awhile. Guides ensured everyone felt comfortable with instructions early in the trip, and after the rapids sections, lots of fun was still had with swimming opportunities and hanging from bridges! Overall a great experience. Note for future travellers: signage to the meeting spot is lacking, but the Casino staff will direct you. Bathrooms are ONLY in the casino, and should all be used BEFORE donning the wetsuit (not last minute), men /women group change stalls are rustic, and open to the elements. We will be back!

Hi GrandTour316320! Glad to hear you thoroughly enjoyed the tour; from the splashes of the whitewater to the playful elements, like hanging from the bridges and swims. We also recommend going to the bathroom prior to changing into the river gear, it's definitely easier than having to take off the wetsuit. Can't wait to have you all back again!
