“A thrilling half-day whitewater adventure with cliff jumping!”

Calling all adventurers, this one’s for you! Step up the excitement on our half-day Bow River Horseshoe Canyon Whitewater adventure – a wet and wild river trip that offers thrills, excitement and striking scenery less than one hour from Banff National Park, Canmore, and Calgary. This is an exciting, yet accessible, whitewater experience for ages 12 and up.

Curving out from the front range of the Canadian Rockies, the Bow River’s Horseshoe Canyon has been drawing thrill-seekers with its big waves and spirited class 2-4 whitewater rapids for decades. The steep walls of the shale canyon offer an excellent opportunity to view large birds of prey and nesting cliff swallows – not to mention cliff jumping! That’s right, along the way our river guides will stop and let you try a heart-pumping cliff jump! (Don’t worry, the cliff jump is optional).

Need a new profile picture? Our photographer will be on site taking action photos of your rafting adventure, which will be available for purchase under ‘Photos’ 24-48 hours after your tour.

This river trip is 3 hours start to finish (4 hours with transport option), approx. 2 hours on the river. Transportation is provided from Banff and Canmore (restrictions apply). Ask about our discounted rates for groups of 10 or more call to discuss best pricing!
