Had an incredible experience rafting down the bow. I was quite nervous beforehand but the guides and crew showed you everything you needed to know and quelled my fears. We were able to surf the rapids, which was definitely a highlight of the trip. Our Guide, Alexis was amazing! He was incredibly knowledgable about rafting and shared some awesome stories... More

Whitewater Rafting is one thing we've always wanted to do….our children are all young adults and we were thrilled to have this experience with them. I found even making the booking easy and the gal I spoke with answered all of my questions. Once arriving, every little detail was explained and the staff very thorough. We had the pleasure of...

On holiday in Canada for 3 weeks and was the one think we definitely wanted to do. We found chinook rafting to be a excellent company to use. Our guide Richard was excellent, very knowledgeable and great with our 5 year old daughter.

We went for our first rafting trip ever on a beautiful sunny August day for 12 kilometers on the Kananaskis river. We were a bit worried as we are in our late sixties but the trip was just right. A good mix of adventure and floating in spectacular mountain scenery. Our guide Adam was knowledgeable and entertaining. He made sure... More

Took our 2 kids on the family raft down the Kananaskis because they are too light for the Horseshoe trip. So beautiful and such a fun experience. The team at Chinook is fun, funny, professional and very organized. Ask how the river got its name. Our guide was Adam and he made sure everyone had fun, got wet and enjoyed... More

We took the rafting trip on the Kananaskis River in Aug, 2014. Great experience! We had transportation from our hotel in Banff. The rafting was perfect for my family, which included 2 kids aged 10 and 13. The guides were humorous and did keep everyone's safety in mind. The scenery was out of this world! Our guide was Muller, and... More

Chinook Rafting is super organized. Fantastic 4 hr. trip. If you have never gone rafting before this is the place to come. Our family had a great time. You can use your own GoPro camera and they even have helmets available with the mounts! Another great advantage is they post the pictures for free on their website! You can also... More
