Surrounded by big mountain views and forested slopes, our scenic nature floats offer guests of all ages and abilities an opportunity to learn about Canmore's storied history, learn about the plants, animals and birds that call the Bow Valley home and the ability to explore an area first settled by the Indigenous people of North America! Proud to be Canmore's first and only locally-owned and family-operated scenic float company, we pride ourselves on hiring folks that are qualified Interpretive Guides, Wilderness First Responders, Swift Water Certified, and above all quality people! We offer guest experiences only river people can offer; with a combined overall experience of over 40 years guiding on the Bow River, no one knows it better than the team at Canmore Raft Tours.

    Went on the Townie tour. The team helped us get into a slot next day as we missed our original one without much hassle. Gregg and Ben are wonderful guides. We had an awesome and memorable time on the tour. Thank you Gregg, Ben and team.

    We had a really good experience in rafting. My family enjoyed a lot. Greg (G) was very welcoming and helped us feel at ease. I would definitely bring future guests to experience this tour. ps. I had to take one star off because when we were disembarking the raft, Canmore Raft Tour's dog (who came with the CRT vehicle with another guide) lunged at my daughter. The dog turned out to be friendly but we were very scared for a second. Regardless of the nature of the dog, I ask CRT to keep the dog's leash tied somewhere when they are busy with disembarking process. Thank you.

    We took the Townie tour and it was a beautiful 45 minute float down the river with a quick return to Canmore in the shuttle bus. The scenery is stunning and the friendly guides shared interesting local knowledge along the way. It's the second time I've joined them and would totally do it again.

    If you're looking for a fun yet calm adventure, Canmore Rafting Tours is for you. I'm a local who took her bff during her visit from Ontario. I enjoyed the different perspective of the mountain ranges, especially Three Sisters. We saw osprey which was cool. Our guide, Luke, is a nice guy and made us laugh. I definitely recommend CRT to visitors!

    We really enjoyed our float. We took the "Townie". Unfortunately, it was too short! It's perfect for a first time to see if you like it though. It's nice that there are only 10 to a boat. Its really relaxing and we do recommend it.
