Whitewater Rafting is an Incredible Group Activity

Corporate & Team Building Events

If you are planning a staff incentive trip or meeting retreat, whitewater rafting in Banff offers an exciting opportunity for true team participation, peer interaction, and we’re only 45 minutes from Calgary. Plus we offer group rafting specials. Rafting, unlike many other activities, is an activity that all members of your group can enjoy, even those with no previous experience. The adventures of the day will improve everyone’s understanding of the importance of developing and maintaining team relationships while increasing personal abilities to move beyond barriers to achieve team goals.

In the past we have found such trips provide unprecedented bonding levels between the participants. A common response for us is that participants have gotten to know their friend or colleague better in one afternoon on the river than they have in a year at the office. We are confident that you will find the same results.

Youth Groups

Whitewater rafting offers an outstanding opportunity for young people to experience the outdoors in an “environmentally friendly” way – while developing valuable life skills. Rafting is an activity that encourages high participation levels, yet is open to any individual age 5 and over. No previous experience is necessary; we provide full instruction on safety and paddling techniques. Plus we offer group rafting specials!

We take many youth groups rafting, including: city and town youth recreation programs, school, church youth, teen clubs, boy scouts, girl guides, 4H and junior forest wardens. In many cases we can tailor these trips to suit the group requirements. We truly hope we have the opportunity to guide your group on our Banff whitewater rafting trips this summer.

Our legendary guides are remaining calm and relaxe Our legendary guides are remaining calm and relaxed during the wait for rafting. 
They are using their time wisely by digging deep and concentrating hard on which stories they'll tell first when our boats hit the water again! 
Ha, they might even add a joke! #anythingsispossible

Вчера ночью получили фотографии с нашего экстрима. Вот такие мы смелые ребята за 5 минут до рафтинга. Я подчёркиваю ДО РАФТИНГА!!!🙈
И раз уж мы все вместе, это хороший повод познакомить с каждым:
Хозяин! Весь семейный финансовый учёт держится исключительно на нём, не смотря на то, что Худо бедно учился в школе. Харизматичный и очень Холёный мужчина, умеет Хватать удачу за Хвост😉
Хорошо сложён, точно знает чего от жизни Хочет, защитник всех малоХольных: муХи не обидит (в прямом смысле поймает и выпустит её за дверь), знает как паХнет пороХ в пороХовницах💥
Совсем ешё малюсенький Хлопчик, но сладкий и с очень Хорошим аппетитом. Немножко "Хулиган", согласно возрасту, чего мы все ему прощаем за доброе Храброе сердце и Характер с душой❤
Хорошенькая, Хрупкая особа. Живёт по принципу "Хочу и Хрен знает как желаемое сделать". Прекрасно научилась, когда надо, Хлопать ресницами и взлетать. Не дружит с Химией со школьных лет. Холодна к мясу и саХару.
Ну, и последнее, что нас объединяет: 
Мы все, наХоХлившись от *Холода*🤪 в Канаде Вам дружно шлём Хорошие приветы!
Эстафету приняли от ivolgaalisa и отработали "Х" по полной всей семьёй 🙌
Ну, Хто тут из нас получился самый Хот?🔥
Хотите поучаствовать во флешмобе, ставьте ссылку на меня и пишите "Хочу букву"!
А Вы как бы охарактеризовали себя на букву "Х"??? Уверена, сейчас все будут ХОРОШИМИ!!👌😂❤
We hope your May long weekend is awesome! Not raf We hope your May long weekend is awesome!

Not rafting is challenging for our guides, but they understand, and they are finding alternatives like the champions they are! #lockdownlife

Any other year, May long is our season-opening weekend. We're looking forward to white water rafting again when it's ok to do so, but we know it's not just yet... Of course we'll let you know when we know more!

-Kananaskis River Rafting- For me, the River Rafti -Kananaskis River Rafting-
For me, the River Rafting was the best experience of the whole Banff trip, because I don't know how to swim, and I vouched to sit right in the front, when they asked. It was a truely awesome feeling, being right in the face of the wild and cold water!
