Get Outside with Your Kids in Alberta, Canada
Take a Rafting Trip
We knew we wanted to do a boat tour and decided on Canmore River Adventures, which offers float trips on the Bow River. A great feature: Pickup and drop-off from your hotel is included in the price. The morning of our tour, it rained a little, but Canmore River Adventures is very flexible. If we wanted to, we could have changed our tour to a sunnier day, but we opted to keep our original plans, since the company has rain jackets for everyone on board. Besides, it’s the Rockies, so it’s gorgeous no matter the weather. And as the locals say, “If you don’t like the weather in the mountains, just wait a few minutes.” The tour itself lasted about 45 minutes, just the right amount of time to hear a bit about the area and take in the beauty without the kids getting bored. The guide was great with the kids and even allowed them to row for a bit.
