White water rafting brings the heartrate up and smiles all around. The Kananaskis River delivers so much fun and excitement! We’ve been working with Chinookrafting to bring family friendly (and Covid friendly) trips this season. This river slices right between Calgary and Banff, making it an easy day trip for those wishing to have a different type of thrill. 
.
In the late 1800’s, Logs used to bounce down this river as the Kananaskis was used to bring wood from the mountain slopes to the Bow River to help supply Calgary. 
.
Kananaskis is the best name isn’t it?! Don’t forget to ask your guide where it comes from?
Our incredible guide Tim is done "working" from home. And now he doesn't have to anymore!
Starting this Friday we'll be so happy to welcome you in our rafts again!! www.chinookrafting.com

ЗНАКОМЬТЕСЬ, Я и МОЁ МУЖСКОЕ ТРИО 👨‍👩‍👦‍👦
⠀
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:
⠀
Антон:
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😉
⠀
Максим:
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💥
⠀
Алексей:
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❤
⠀
Оксана:
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!!👌😂❤

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

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!
