Whitewater Rafting Summer Outdoor Activities

Feel the spray on your face as you paddle madly through seething water. Shoot through narrow canyons, dodge the rocks and swerve around the next bend in the river. Few experiences get the adrenaline pumping like whitewater rafting in Alberta. Go for an afternoon, or spend a few nights under the stars as you make your way along the course of the river. Feel the thrill of the rapids in an unspoiled natural setting and keep your eyes open for deer, elk and bear on the riverbanks. There are trips for all skill levels and professional guides who provide everything you need.
