KANANASKIS COUNTRY, ALBERTA – When you fly into Calgary, Alberta or find your way to the Canmore Kananaskis area, a rafting trip on the Kananaskis is a great family whitewater rafting experience for both beginners and experts. With great Class II and III whitewater rapids, the Kananaskis River provides a thrilling introduction to whitewater rafting that serves as a cool intro to kids and families.
The Kananaskis River is located in the front ranges of the Canadian Rockies, making this a convenient trip, and just a short 15 to 20 minute jaunt to Banff, Canmore and Calgary. And once you get comfortable with the Kananaskis, think about moving up the Canadian Rockies whitewater thrill ladder and rafting Banff’s famous Kicking Horse River or Jasper’s mighty Fraser and Athabasca Rivers. Head instead toward the Kicking Horse River for another whitewater rafting adventure, or get back on dry land to explore Banff National Park.
Rafting may be the single most exhilarating of all Canadian Rockies activities. Jasper and Banff, Alberta are two of the best areas in North America for whitewater rafting. Don’t leave our incredible province without exploring the best of Banff National Park, Jasper National Park and the Canadian Rockies.
