This gentle 1hr float starts downtown Canmore, only a few minutes away from the local pubs, restaurants, shops and galleries, and only a hop, skip and a jump from most hotels and bed and breakfasts. “The Townie” is great for those with a time restriction, first time floaters, families with young children, and for those that are travelling on a budget. Departing four times daily, this scenic float trip is designed to meet the needs of most travellers.
Join Canmore Raft Tours on an evening float tour through the Bow Valley Wildland Park. Surrounded by forests of pine and spruce, and home to some of the most magestic and iconic animals in Canada, the scenic Bow River float provides guests of all ages the opportunity of a lifetime. Departing within a few minute walk from downtown Canmore, this professionally guided interpretive tour is perfect for families, friends and folks of all ages.
As guides share stories about the Bow Valley, guests can pick away at an appetizer platter made up of meat, cheese and crackers (gluten free option on board) and fresh cherries from the Canmore Mountain Market. Make sure to check out the interpretive kits that include guide books, binoculars and even fossils! The “Explorer” Tour is the perfect way to relax at the end of a long day, and enjoy the secrets of the Bow Valley.
