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.

For the family or those seeking a milder river experience (sometimes known as “reluctant rafters”), this trip is ideal! Starting 4kms inside of Yoho National Park, enjoy the “float less traveled”. But, it’s not all gentle and calm. In fact, there are six excellent rapids from class II to III to splash and soak you during the 1½ hour journey.
