Family Rafting Fun On the Kananaskis River

Looking for the perfect introduction to rafting that’s suited to the whole family? Hydra River Guides offers multiple trips suitable for little adventures, including our Mild Trip on the Kicking Horse in Golden, BC as well as our tours of the Kananaskis River. Learn more about our family friendly Kananaskis trips below!

The Perfect Introduction to Rapids

For those with children ages 5 to 11, we understand that the prospect of rafting can seem a little daunting. For over 30 years, our guides have helped adventurers of all ages and experience levels navigate rapids in a safe and fun manner. We believe that rafting can be a one-of-a-kind bonding experience for the whole family, and strive to ensure that every trip is as safe as possible. That way you can suit up, grab your paddle, and raft with confidence!

Incredible Scenery

Located just 45 minutes west of Calgary, Kananaskis Country gives rafters stunning views of the front ranges of the Canadian Rockies. As a relatively gentle river, the Kananaskis River is a perfect start for those a little unsure about conquering the Kicking Horse, and for families with little adventurers.

What to Expect

To have fun! No matter your age or experience level, the guides at Hydra are here to make your trip on the river as enjoyable as possible. Be prepared to get wet, learn some new paddle skills, and make memories you’re sure to laugh about for years to come!
