Whitewater Rafting Summer Outdoor Activities

Let’s get one thing clear: you’re going to get soaked. And you’re going to love it. The rush of whitewater rafting is the good kind of terrifying. Plus, for newbies and kids, there are calmer routes with just enough excitement to make every rollercoaster seem as tame as a swing set. • Milder: The rivers are more intense in late spring and early summer, so book later in the season for delightful thrills with fewer spills. • Wilder: Battle Class 3 or 4 rapids with a seasoned guide on a daytrip down a mountain river. Camp overnight for back-to-back rafting days.

A family's view of their trip down the Kananaskis River with Chinook Rafting. 'We paddled hard, we got really wet, we splashed other boats, we laughed a lot and in the process created memories that we will have forever'.
