What to expect
This easy-going rafting trip is a great way for families and groups to sample the thrills of whitewater. Along the way, enjoy local wildlife sightings and the serene outdoor beauty of the Kananaskis River, a 46-mile waterway that flows from the Rockies into Banff’s Bow River. Start your rafting adventure with an optional pickup in Banff or Canmore. Check with your tour operator for exact pickup times. Then enjoy the short scenic ride as it winds its way through the Canadian countryside. Once you arrive, listen as your guides share safety instructions and paddle techniques for your time on the river. Then jump aboard to start your journey. This part of the river runs calm, allowing you the chance to admire the lovely forest environment and soaring mountains that line the banks. Make sure to watch for the area’s local wildlife, including eagles, bear, and deer strolling along the riverway. Just when things seem to be slowing down, the river comes to life, kicking up a series of frothy rapids that get your heart pumping. Hang tight and listen for your guide’s instructions as he helps you navigate the whitewater. Your day ends with snacks, high-fives and optional return transportation to your hotel. This is a seasonal tour running mid-May through mid-September.

White Water Rafting Was Awesome!
Sep 2021
White Water Rafting was awesome! I would definitely recommend going. Our guide David was amazing! We all had so much fun. The water was cool and refreshing and the views were beautiful. We got splashed a lot and at the end, we even got to swim in the cold glacier water! There were lots of laughs and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

A great time white water rafting!!
Jul 2021 • Couples
My parents give Chinnok Rafting full stars! They had such a great time, and typically don't love doing crazy things. Their guide Cris was a very knowledgeable, friendly, funny, and professional expert rafting guide. He made their team feel very safe. They would definitely recommend this for everyone!! They came out smiling at the end.

Amazing! This is the place to book with!
Jun 2021 • Couples
This was a great experience! Our tour guide Max was fantastic! He was super fun, goofy and friendly and made the experience all the better. It wasn’t as exhilarating as I thought it would be but it was a great first time white water rafting experience nonetheless. We got lots of splashes that’s for sure! If you want to try white water rafting but are a little nervous, this is the place to try it. This is such a fun thing to do and isn’t nearly as scary as people hype it up to be!:) I would highly recommend giving this place a try. They’re the whole package and give a great experience. They even give you snacks and beverages afterwards to warm up and hang out after the raft ride is done. Honestly cannot say enough good things about this place!

Gorgeous scenery, Super fun activity
Aug 2019
The whole experience was very well organised from start to finish. Equipment was provided and safety was a priority at all times. All we had to do was follow instructions and have a good time! We went in August, and the river was very cold, but with the suits we didn't feel the cold at all. At the end we even had an opportunity to hop out of the rafts and have a little swim in the river!

We chose the Kananaskis River as it seemed like a good experience for people who don't know anything about white water rafting. In hindsight I would have chosen more challenging rapids. These rapids are great for a more family experience though.

Afterwards we were treated to a hot chocolate and a cookie, which was very welcome!

The only potential negative is that you can not guarantee you will get a good photo. We were at the back of the raft and were disappointed that you could not see our faces in any of the photos. You do get a photo taken before you get in the raft though, so you will always have at least one memento.

Overall: Really fun and recommended! This one is a great choice for older/younger/uncertain people. Take a go-pro if you have one.

Time Well Spent
Jul 2019 • Family
Our family of four did the KRR and we couldn't have been more pleased with our experience. Our Peruvian guide was a joy to be around and the Kananaskis was a great introductory River. It's a perfect ride for families, making it enjoyable for all ages. Although my wife and I have rafted before, my two teenagers had not. After a wonderful day on the river, they had such a great time that they wanted to do something more challenging. 3-4 river class, where are you? I highly recommend Chinook Rafting.

We weren't cold at all!
Jul 2019 • Family
Our family did the Kananaskis Rafting Adventure last week and had a great time (2 parents, 2 boys aged 11 and 9). We were worried that we were going to be wet and cold the whole time but Chinook makes sure you're supplied with everything needed to stay quite warm, even though you are wet (wet suit, booties, fleece sweater, splash jacket). The rapids were exciting, but not too scary for the kids. We will definitely go again the next time we're in Banff.

Had an absolute blast rafting down the glacier fed Kananaskis river with Chinook Rafting! Perfect mix of exciting rapids and calm flowing water for sightseeing the Rockies. We had Sam as a Guide - he was highly knowledgable about the area and a great team leader. Worth every penny
