Ready to make the most of the end of summer? Fall is on its way, but there’s plenty of time to enjoy all of the wonderful warm weather the Rocky Mountains have to offer. As one of Canada’s biggest outdoor playgrounds, Banff has plenty of options for adventure enthusiasts and those looking to relax and enjoy the abundant natural beauty of the area.
At Banff Adventures, we offer trips, activities, and excursions for every type of adventurer. One of our most popular actives are our whitewater rafting trips. Perfect for families, thrill-seekers, and anyone looking to make life long memories in the wilderness! Learn more about hitting the water with Banff Adventures below!
Our trips are able to accommodate everyone, including families with young children (6+) and those with no previous experience. Two of our most popular trips include:
Like the name suggests, the Kicking Horse Classic takes rafters through the most popular parts of Kicking Horse river and departs from our ultra exclusive river base, located right on the river bank. The classic starts off calmly, giving you time to acclimatize to the water and familiarize yourself with proper paddling, and then transitions on to the famous rapids that draw in visitors from all over the world. End with a delicious BBQ back at our river base.
This trip is so popular, it departs twice a day!
The Mild is the perfect trip for those bringing little ones along on their whitewater adventure. Like the Classic, it departs from our exclusive river base, which gives you the opportunity to park in a secure lot, and suit up (and change back to your day clothes) in comfort. The mild travels down calmer waters, and is an ideal way to take in the sereneness of the mountains without having to battle the rushing waters of the Kicking Horse. The trip ends with a delicious BBQ lunch and lasts approximately one hour.
Not sure if a day on the water is enough adventure for you and your crew? No worries! Banff Adventures offers a variety of rafting packages to extend your fun. A few highlights include:
Raft & Ride
