Bow River Safari

Bow River Safari (2½ hours)

Join us for an extraordinary late afternoon wilderness sightseeing experience on the Bow River. We launch at the base of Bow Falls and float 17 km to the Eastern boundary of Banff National Park. For several decades this vintage tour has been a pinnacle of the authentic mountain experience for nature lovers. The scenery is fantastic with water birds and wildflowers being abundant on this section of the Bow River. We occasionally spot wildlife too! Our guides land the rafts on the riverbank and lead you on a 20 minute nature walk through the forest to meet your bus. This tour requires mild physical activity.
