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. 

White water rafting down the Horseshoe Canyon area of the Bow River was the perfect way to celebrate a friends’ road trip to Alberta, Canada. As a group of three couples, we sat down to plan an ultimate friends’ summer road trip, setting our sights on Canada. Located just 45 minutes from the beauty of the Canadian Rockies, we chose Calgary, Alberta as our destination.
