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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

I am not great with water, but I really wanted to try this experience. Blair and his crew did a great job of going over all the safety stuff. I appreciated the humor he tossed in. :) The Elk River "Wild" trip was what we did. I thought it was a perfect mix of bigger waves and calm stuff. The... More

Than you so much Canyon Raft Company for the best day ever! I rarely do water sports and certainly never gone white water rafting before, so I was more than a little nervous. As soon as I put my hand in the mountain water and finding it comfortably cool I knew it was going to be a great trip. We... More

My spouse, two friends and I had a great time in the lower Elk Canyon with Canyon Raft. The booking process was a bliss. Lynn was very helpful! Our adventure started on a Tuesday. Blair picked us up at the Fernie Alpine Resort. There were about 19 people in total that had signed up for white water rafting for that... More
