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.
