The 10-day rafting trip on the Tatshenshini/ Alsek River with Canadian Rafting Adventures (CRA) was truly bucket list, trip of a lifetime stuff! The scenery was stunning -- verdant hillsides topped with scree, craggy snow covered mountain tops, small and enormous icebergs, glaciers close up and far away; and wildlife like grizzly bear, wolf, bald eagle, trumpeter swans and moose....

Joined CRA for a fun afternoon of whitewater rafting. The team are friendly and make you feel welcome from the start. We had a great afternoon on the highwood and made some great new friends.

Been rafting a couple of times, once in New Zealand, once in States, but this was definitely the best day out I've ever had! Our guide was awesome, very knowledgable, and great fun! Let us duck dive in and ride along the rapids...... after the dip, the rest of the CRA crew were waiting by the riverbank with lunch, hot... More

I would highly recommend this company for your rafting experience! We went on the Highwood River with as a work event. Many of us are outdoor thrill seekers, and our guide made sure we had a memorable trip. They went out of their way to accommodate our thrill seeking group! We were able to cliff jump for about 20 minutes... More

Positively the best whitewater rafting near Calgary. Friendly staff, great atmosphere, high safety standards. Short season (May-June) but well worth it! Spectacular scenery too as the river is in the Foothills of Kananaskis Country.

As a professional who's researched the customer experience for many years, I have to say I've never encountered a better one! The CRA guides took care of our every need from the time we met them until we returned to our hotel. If you're looking for a unique adventure that's rugged, but you also feel pampered and excited to see... More

Our 10 day Tatshenshini/ Alsek lake trip was a true adventure for us. We experienced so much is those days. From Class 4 Rapids to floating among the icebergs in Alsek . Our guides were very experienced and a joy to spend 10 days with. Some great chef skills also. A recommended trip for sure.

We went rafting with these guys for the first time on June 13, 2015. This was mine and my fiancé's 3rd time rafting, and though the river was a little shallow for us, it was a good time. The company had nice equipment, a great location near Longview, and the guides were fantastic. They were extremely knowledgeable, and very personable.... More
