Min 2 yrs
In Banff

Join us for an extraordinary guided float experience on the famous Bow River. Families, seniors and children are all welcome! 

Our large 25 passenger rafts are customized with elevated wood floorboards, so your shoes even stay dry! This is not a whitewater trip. No big splashes or waves crash into the boat and there are no rapids on this trip. We launch at the base of Bow River Falls, near The Fairmont Banff Springs Golf Course. During your river raft journey, we travel approximately 7 km down the Bow River past Bow Falls encountering excellent views of Sleeping Buffalo, Cascade and Rundle Mountains. The natural scenery is fantastic with water birds and wild flowers being abundant on the banks of the river. We float past the Hoodoos and land the rafts at the towering north face of Mount Rundle. Our guests often bring cameras to capture the dramatic scenery as they float by. Tours includes bus shuttle back to the base.
