Have you wanted to take your young family rafting but are unsure of which trip you'd be able to do? Are you, or someone else in your group, nervous about trying rafting? Or perhaps you’re just looking for a relaxing float through nature?

We have the perfect rafting trip for you!

The Family Adventure is an awesome trip for kids as young as 6 years old. It rafts the calm waters of the upper canyon of the Kicking Horse River, with some splashes and a taste of whitewater at the end.

Take in the scenery and stories from your guide while the kids learn to paddle and have fun on the water.

The Family Adventure is also a great introduction for those who are a bit nervous about rafting. It’s an excellent way to get comfortable in the raft and used to paddling on the river, without the added apprehension of bigger rapids.

Because all of our day trips start out on this section of the river, however, if you're enjoying your day and decide you'd like to experience some bigger rapids, you do have the option to upgrade and continue on into the middle canyon after lunch (provided you're 12 years or older, and we still have seats available).

Just let your guide know and they'll make it happen!

The day starts off with you floating through the Beaverfoot Valley on the scenic upper canyon of the Kicking Horse River.

You'll have a chance to jump in for a swim on those warm summer days (the cooler ones too if you're feeling brave), and further downstream you'll make the short hike up to a waterfall known as the Fountain of Youth.

Don’t forget to drink it in!
