Tackle the powerful rapids of the Sunwapta River— its name means “turbulent waters”— on a guided rafting adventure down 6.2 miles (10 km) of glacial waters flowing from the Columbia Icefield.

Before you hit the rapids, your experienced guides provide safety instruction and get you fitted with rafting equipment and gear for your adventure. Put in and start with a leisurely float through the canyon that gives you plenty of time to get used to paddling, turning, and maneuvering your rubber raft. As you cruise, your guide shares interesting facts about the region’s natural history and wildlife.

As the current picks up speed, round a bend to face your first Class III rapids. Dip, dive, and splash over curlers, standing waves, and boulders, digging in with your paddles as you guide throws out commands for safely navigating through the churning waters. This challenging run is for physically fit paddlers and strong swimmers—brave the waves before your thrilling ride comes to a close a short distance from the thundering Sunwapta Falls.
