Calling all adventurers, this one’s for you! Step up the excitement on our half-day Bow River Horseshoe Canyon Whitewater adventure! This is a wet and wild river trip that offers thrills, adventure, and striking scenery less than one hour from Banff, 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 also 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).
