“Riverboarding is a totally unique whitewater experience!”

What’s river boarding? It’s a hands-on-in-your-face kind of whitewater adventure. For thrill-seekers where riding the rapid isn’t enough, river boarding puts you in the rapids, surfing the current downstream as you catch the swirls, boils, and waves on a specially designed river board across class 2-3 rapids.

River boarding is a totally unique style of whitewater river running, an experience only offered at Canadian Rockies Rafting! Our highly trained guides will be with you the entire way, offering support and river knowledge. This half-day experience is an advanced adventure for thrill-seekers aged 14 and up with confident swimming skills and weighing a minimum of 90lbs.

We will give you all the river gear you need including wetsuit, river boots, mittens, life jacket, helmet, and riverboard. All you need to bring is a bathing suit and lots of energy!

This river trip is 2.5-3 hours start to finish (3-4 hours with free transport option), approx. 1-1.5 hours on the river.  Transportation is provided from Canmore but ask our staff if there is a Banff option. Ask our team about discounted rates for groups of 10 or more!
