Banff Rafting offers a range of rafting tours suitable for both newbies and experienced adrenaline-junkies. Due to excellent weather conditions, the period between mid-May and mid-September is considered to be perfect for whitewater rafting. During your adventure, you will take in the most scenic beauty of the impressive Canadian Rockies.

The frothy rapids of The Kananaskis River is suitable for families. These rapids will lift your raft upwards and make you paddle with all your vigour. Plotting a course through the best rapids will give you some harmonious moments to take in the beauty of Kananaskis Country landscapes.

During the quiet stretches of the Bow River, which thunders through Horseshoe Canyon, you can witness birds flying high above. The river is surrounded by cliffs, so you might even try cliff jumping if you're the dare-devil type!

The relaxing pace of Horse River gives you the opportunity improve your rafting skills and enjoy the sceneries of the tranquil upper section. As the canyon narrows, the waves escalate, drenching rafters in continuous rapids like Roller Coaster, Man Eater, and Shot Gun.
