White Water Rafting – Horseshoe Canyon

Calling all adventure lovers – there’s no better way to get the adrenaline flowing than big waves! Jump into a river raft and let the foamy rapids take you coursing swiftly through the foothills of the Canadian Rockies.

Enjoy up to two hours of water rafting on the Bow River that thunders through Horseshoe Canyon and surrounded by the magnificent Rocky Mountains.

Here you come, clad in neoprene and whooping with excitement as the rapids surge. During the quiet stretches, you lift your eyes skyward and see large birds of prey soaring above. You might even try cliff jumping – if you dare. On this tour you occasionally may see wildlife such as osprey, bald eagles, deer and bears.
Many Hollywood movies have been shot here in the spectacular geology of the Canyon – your guide will tell you all about it. Even if you have no rafting experience don’t worry – you’ll learn everything you need to know.
