Embark on Calgary’s only guided river experience, view downtown Calgary from the original highway, The Bow River. There are lots of amazing architecture in Calgary, old and new bridges, as well as new and historic office and residential high-rises which we have the opportunity to see as we float down the river. It is a view of the inner city that even long-time residents of Calgary have never experienced. The trips start by Pump House Theater and end at Pearce Estates Park. The trip is about one and a half hours long. Want a meal during your trip, bagged lunch or stop at a restaurant in the middle of the trip, maybe an evening float under the lights? We do custom trips as well as our standard trip. Call for details.

This year we are excited to announce Sin Fest! Every year hundreds of people come to the Crowsnest Pass to run in the Sinister 7 Ultra Marathon. Sin Fest is a celebration of the community that hosts this world-class event and the athletes who push themselves to the max. We know that when you are supporting a family member or friend in the race, there is a lot of downtime between meeting your person at the transition areas. If you are running, it’s nice to enjoy some of the local entertainment while you are here. So we are working with a number of attractions and local organizations to provide you a weekend that isn’t just about running! There will be an outdoor community market, guided hiking trips, mountain biking, an eating contest, access to the outdoor pool, historical presentations at the Frank Slide Interpretive Centre, and a bumping night scene at Pass Powderkeg, Ground Zero for Sin Fest!
