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!

Absolutely everything about it was perfect. We had never done it before, and can't wait to go back!!!
Our guide was Quynton McCleary and he was amazing. So knowledgeable, yet patient with all of us. He gave us the option at each set of rapids to paddle back in, allowing us to challenge ourselves. He made us have fun but also feel extremely safe.
A very fun Canadian Rocky experience!!!!!

What a great way to view the majesty and beauty of the land. Learned about woodoos and got to see cow elk cross in front of our raft. Our guide was strong and provided us with good information.

Hi Debra B! We agree, being on the water just gives a different perspective of the surroundings. What an awesome part of the world we are in. How awesome was that to see the elk crossing, very cool to witness. Thank you for taking the time to review and share your experience; it is greatly appreciated.

So much fun!!!! I was very nervous to go. So glad we went. Our instructor/guide, I think her name was Hannah, was excellent. Her knowledge and experience set my worries aside. Beautiful scenery and great company. I will definitely do it again!

I booked last minute, they were very accommodating. Staff was very knowledgeable, polite, Quentin our guide, Shannon in the office, Scott our driver and Hannah who gave our safety orientation all went above and beyond to see we had a seamless exciting and safe experience, with enough thrills to make it memorable. Beautiful day, breathtaking experience providing great memories.

6 of us decided we needed an adventure and that’s what we got! Quynton was a great guide. He gave us some fun facts about the surrounding mountains and because we were a small group and only 2 boats went out we were able to go back and “surf” the rapids. I was scared but he made it very safe and fun for everyone. Most of the group are going back for the longer trip next year! A great company and super friendly and knowledgeable staff. Liam on the booking was great, Hanna as the team lead had great safety info and got us all suited up! The boys taking pictures did an amazing job and Quynton made it the best day!!! Thanks to Grace and Dougie for the entertainment as they went down the river in their dingy! You made us all laugh. 10/10 day for sure!!!!

I was worried that a family friendly raft trip might be kind of tame but it was great. The rapids were enough to flip 1 boat and have a few people fall out. My 10 year old son did great. Our guide, Hanna was wonderful and entertaining. We played some games towards the end of the trip when the river was quieter. I would definitely do this trip again.

We had an exceptional experience. We had a group of 19 people more than half of them were kids.
Grace took all the kids into a raft together 9-12 year old's and was incredible with them. She had them all working in sync, and made their experience "A trip they will never forget".
Mattias was a lot of fun and gave us lots of opportunities to try different things, flipping the boat, playing games, and and made our experience something I will never forget.
The rapids were really fun, and lots of adrenalin moments on the river.
I highly recommend this company, both for an exceptional experience and a commitment to safety.
Thank you for making this family trip such a success.

We were nervous at first as this was our first experience doing white water rafting, but staff was very helpful and took their time with instructions and safety gear. We immediately felt comfortable with our guide Hanna, who seemed very experienced and made it so much easier! We did this activity with a 9-year old and 2 teens and both equally enjoyed the experience!
