White Water Rafting Canada While Camping


Visitors: 111

Are you a white water rafting enthusiast? Do you want to add to your adventures by going out on a river you have never been on? White water rafting Canada is a unique experience. If you have ever traveled on the Colorado River you know how a river can be mild one minute and rushing the next. The Canadian Rockies is home to some of the most interesting river rafting trips including the Kicking Horse River.

The Kicking Horse River offers 1, 2, or even 6-day trips. If you decide a half-day is better they offer that too. You can choose a level of difficulty from one to five depending on your experience. If you take a day trip often times the food will be provided. If you decide on the longer trips you will need to make sure you pack all the items you need according to the limit the company has on gear.

Ask the company for a list of items you will need to bring. Make sure they will provide all your meals or that you will need to bring food as well. They want you to have fun as well as be safe so they will answer any of your questions.

Other places to go for white water rafting Canada are the Kootenay River and Toby Creek. These areas tend to have smaller rapids though you can certainly find adventure for your family on them. The Banff National Park is home to many of the Canadian Rockies Rivers and is a great place to start your adventure. You can camp inside the park before you go on your trip or take one of the longer trips and camp along the river.

The level of experience you have should denote the amount of time you spend river rafting and what level of difficulty you choose. Speaking with a river runner is important when you are deciding on the best and most unique trip for you and your family. Some safety tips include wearing the correct shoes and having the correct clothing. You do not want sandals that easily slip off your feet. Some people will wear hiking boots, but remember if water splashes in your hiking shoes you may end up uncomfortable and looking for problems. It is best to wear some time of boat shoe that gives you grip as well as comfort.

The clothing should be warm. In Canada you may experience warm weather depending on the time of year, but that doesn't mean the water is as warm as the rivers you are use to. Being comfortable and staying warm is very important especially if you are going to be camping out.
