We spent a sunny day on the Elk River with Canyon Raft. Our family of four took the morning float with guides Tom and Joey. The guides were knowledgeable about the river, local geography and highly engaged on the river. We even spotted some trolls for the kids under both bridges...lol. Owners Blair and Lynn were both very kind and... More

My partner and I took part in the "River Mild" adventure with our brother-in-law and nephew. He's just a little too small for white water so we thought this might be a good intro for him to river rafting. I notice that most of the reviews here are for their River Wild tours, so I hope this one convinces those... More

A gentle introduction with a float down the Elk River then on to the real thing - a wild ride down the Elk. All of the staff were wonderful and made both trips unforgettable. Blair, the owner of the company was amazing. He knew every rock in the river! The rapids were awe-inspiring, some terrifying but Blair kept the raft... More

Fantastic day on the Elk River. Staff was very knowledgeable and skilled. The owner of the company, Blair, drives the bus and mans a raft!! We were given a very thorough safety briefing before putting into the water and beginning our day of fun. The guides add much to the day by filling the float areas with interesting facts on... More

I'm a bit of a rafting junkie and this was the longest, wildest rafting trip I've ever been on! Great fun! Excellent guides, very professional and safety conscious. All rafting companies tell you that lunch will be delicious. It usually isn't but Canyon Raft Co delivers! Great lunch made with local produce and local suppliers. The best food I'd eaten... More

My friends and I had an amazing day on the river with Canyon Raft Company. Our friendly guides were awesome and knowledgeable about the history of the area, natural features and wildlife. Our delicious lunch was sourced from local producers/companies and the rafting was an absolute blast!! I would highly recommend this for a day trip to remember!

Myself and three friends went rafting on the elk river for the day and absolutely loved it! We were picked up in an epic old yellow school bus and taken right to the river where everything was prepared for us. We had wetsuits, booties, helmets, dry suits everything even lunch was provided! The water was cold but the rapids were... More

I am typically pretty chicken. I signed up for the white water rafting tour with some co workers. Despite my initial reservations, this was AWESOME. The staff are wonderful and get you going and feeling comfortable in no time. The initial safety talk was a bit concerning, but I soon realized that there was nothing to worry about - they... More

It was beyond my expectations. Even though the weather was not ideal, it didn't matter. We stayed warm and entertained the whole time. Such a great experience. I will definitely do this again, and bring my friends. Kyler was our guide and very professional - he really knew his stuff - the whole team was above board - so great.... More
