Make a weekend out of your day out on the water with one of the Adventure Packages such as the Raft n' Camp Package. Besides, what could be better after a day of rafting than recounting the day's tall tales around the campfire?
Catrafting is something new and a bit different - a catraft is an inflatable craft with two pontoons. The pontoons are held together with an aluminum frame and the floor of the catraft is made of mesh. This allows the waves to saturate the front, sides and floor of the craft. The catraft has proven to be ideal for the big waters of the Kicking Horse River.
Stand Up Paddle Board Tours are suitable for the adventurous and no prior experience is required. Choose from an afternoon tour along the Kicking Horse and Columbia Rivers, or a day adventure travelling the historic Beaver and Kicking Horse Rivers. This wild, scenic and remote tour will bring you up close and personal with stunning Wapta Falls and the Rocky Mountains.
