Combo Package; experience whitewater thrills and a cliff jump on the Bow River, then raft the family-friendly Kananaskis River.
Included: Horseshoe Canyon Whitewater Rafting (8:15am – 12:00pm)
In the morning, jump into a river raft and let the foamy rapids take you coursing swiftly through the foothills of the Canadian Rockies. Ride class 3-4 rapids on the Horseshoe Canyon section of the Bow River and choose from two cliff jump heights – if you dare!
Included: Kananaskis River Whitewater Rafting (1:30pm – 5:30pm)
In the afternoon, get splashed on the class 2 – 3 rapids along with pristine landscapes of Kananaskis Provincial Park. It’s the ideal rafting experience for families, friends or as a group outing and you’ll have a chance to play surfing the waves and swimming in the river alongside the raft.

You can wear sunglasses/glasses as long as these are secured with a strap or piece of string, and contact lenses are usually okay if you are comfortable swimming with them and tell your guide. Sunscreen is great on a hot day for any areas not covered by the wetsuit, but avoid putting it above or near your eyes. You can bring your own waterproof camera or GoPro which can be secured with your own chest harness or on a helmet with a GoPro mount, but we are not responsible for loss or damage of your equipment.
Guests should be physically fit and have a reasonable swimming ability in order to participate in both tours.
The tours are run by Chinook Rafting who have been operating whitewater rafting tours as a licensed company in the province of Alberta since 1983 and all of the rafting guides are trained in Swiftwater Rescue and First Aid & CPR. What this means for you is that they are confident that they can manage, not eliminate, the risks today to offer you an exciting and fun day on the river, creating as safe a framework as they can, given what we are doing. However, it is important to remember that we are not on a track, this isn’t Disneyland! The fact that we’re not on a track adds excitement to what we’re doing, but it also adds inherent risks.
