“It was awesome!”

Canyon Raft Company
Ranked #1 of 6 Tours in Fernie
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 August 2014

We had a great day. Blair and Lynn and their staff were extremely competent, fun, and knowledgable. We had sun, rain and sun again, with fun all the way through. Along with the exciting white water, we learned history of the area, saw bald eagles and other birds. The trip had 4 rafts with varying levels of comfort with water and rapids, everyone was looked after. Lunch was a treat beside the river, first class and tasty.
We enjoyed a birthday on the trip, birthday cake complete with candles! Colleen, the photographer, took outstanding photographs and skillfully captured our action filled fun! We were lucky to have Caz, the canine traveller, who has more experience on the river than most.
This was a highlight of our summer, we will definitely be back!!!

We decided to just try the float trip for our first time on the river rather than the white water trip. It was relaxing and Jamie our guide was very knowledgeable about the area and had a lot of experiences to talk about of his own adventures around Fernie. We stopped for brownies and juice part way down the river and overall we had fun and got to relax.

My family really enjoyed our afternoon on the whitewater of the Elk river! Our guides were safety-minded, knowledgeable, and fun!

Took my two kids aged 7 and 8 on this trip. Very experienced guides (Blair is a true pro as are the rest of his team), top notch equipment, incredible scenery and great running commentary on the area (geography, history etc). If you want to do a real white water rafting trip with your family and not just a "family float" this is the best trip to do in the area by a long shot. Highlight of our week long trip in the Rockies.

You get picked up in an awesome old school bus & given all the gear you will need. The guides, employees, and everyone really is super knowledgeable, reassuring, informative and fun! I have never had so much fun! Our boat guide, Blair, was just awesome! And they have a photographer that takes amazing pictures that you can buy on a USB stick at the end of the trip. Worth it for sure!
