The Trip was part of a fantastic Holiday, but one of the memorable ones. The Team at Chinook were Friendly, Knowledgeable and extremely capable, which allowed us with more nervous dispositions relax and enjoy the thrill of the Days event activities. Many, Many thanks to ALL the Team.

We went on the last day of the year and were worried we would be freezing. The weather was beautiful and the wet suits kept us warm. Our tour guide was Muller and he was a lot of fun and very interesting. He kept maneuvering us so we would get the biggest splashes. He also tricked us into rowing backwards... More

After 5 days of walks, biking and hikes in the rain, my brother treated our family to a white water rafting adventure. This outdoor outfit was well organized. High safety standards. Thank you Marshall (guide) for this 'most excellent adventure'. Marshall made it so much fun. We were a diverse group of young children, teenagers and middle-agers. The scenery was... More

We had such a blast; we really loved every aspect of it. Not only is the rafting and cliff jumping exciting, but the views are incredible! It really does... More

This was my second time of rafting within the area. I chose the Horseshoe Canyon with Class 3-4 rapids. It was great fun with beautiful scenery. The guide was funny and knowledgeable. What caught me by surprise was the 3 meters and 10 meters cliff jumping where you can decide to participate or not. That added to the fun!
