Starting in mid May and finishing in m id-September, the rafting trips depart daily from Banff and Lake Louise. The newly built “River Base” day lodge is a really comfortable, warm base to stay when you are doing a multi-day trip. Aside from the actual trip, Wild Water Adventures also provide quality equipment, plentiful gear and some truly delicious food. The booking office is based in the gorgeous Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise should you wish to speak face to face with one of the friendly and ever-helpful staff.
There are other great rafting companies such as Chinook and Wakpa who take you down other popular rivers such as the Kananaskis River and the Horseshoe Canyon section of the Bow River and the Highwood River.
