Hot day, Frigid waters!Amazing Bow River Rapids“THE “ manGreat Rafting ExperienceFantastic rafting experience
What a fun day with Micaela! From the beginning her and Scott were welcoming and helpful getting everyone dressed and ready for the water. Our group really appreciated her guidance in teaching us the Do’s and Dont’s of rafting. She also gave us information on hikes in the area, history and where other great rafting places are in Alberta and BC. Weather was gorgeous, views were spectacular and next time we will do a more advanced tour like Horseshoe Canyon. Would highly recommend this company, safety is their #1 priority!!
Hot day, Frigid waters!
We had the fortune of having an exciting and amazing family adventure with Canadian Rockies Rafting Co. Our tour guide Scott, was extraordinarily professional, knowledgeable and patient with both of our children (10 & 8). This is a must for a family holiday in the Banff/Canmore area and provided a bounty of stories and memories for our family to share for years to come. The rapids provide enough thrills to get your blood going and the end of the journey stimulated some good story telling by Scott. If you are concerned about COVID, this company has implemented many measures to ease your concerns. Don't hesitate book your adventure, sit back and enjoy!

“THE “ man
I took my 9 y/o daughter & 8 y/o twin daughters solo as my wife-to-be couldn’t make the trip. We had Dean as our guide and the man’s amazing at what he does! If/when we book again we’ll be sure to request him as our guide. He was great with the girls and was really clear on tell me what I had to be doing. 10/10
Great Rafting Experience
We did the Kananaskis Whitewater trip with our 4 kids (between the ages of 7 and 10). The trip was exceptionally well organized and the whole team was professional and accommodating. I really appreciated the advice that they gave us both by phone and on site. Our guide, Scott, was fantastic. He tailored our seating arrangements throughout the trip so that our older kids would have more excitement in the rapids while our younger ones would keep feeling comfortable.
Fantastic rafting experience
