THE 2.5 HOUR EXPLORER
Beneath the towering peaks of the Canadian Rockies front ranges, flows the glacial fed Bow River. Surrounded by forests of pine and spruce, and home to some of the most majestic and iconic animals in Canada, this scenic river float provides guests of all ages the opportunity of a lifetime. Departing within a few minute walk from downtown Canmore, this professionally guided interpretive tour is perfect for families, friends and folks of all ages. Simply show up at the river and slip into the raft for a relaxing float downstream, as guides share stories about the Bow Valley. The "Explorer" Tour is the perfect way to relax at the end of a long day, and enjoy the secrets of the Bow Valley.
No better way to wrap up a day! Just sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery. Take me to the river!
Canmore Raft Tour guides meet all guests at the river before each tour. The guides will hand out waivers, fit you in a PFD and give a brief river awareness talk before the rafts depart. We carry first aid kits and dry bags (to carry any extra cloths or items guests need to bring). Be sure to bring along your camera and our guides would be happy to take some family pictures for you. The best shots are from the river! During the trip our guides will share stories about the Bow Valley and its natural and cultural histories. They will also be happy to answer any questions about the area that you may have. At the end of the tour we will bring you back to the starting point and get you on your way for your next adventure.
