River Explorer 9 AM

Duration: 01:30 (Approx.)

Enjoy the sheer beauty of the Bow River while you enjoy a one-hour paddle in a Voyageur Canoe. Meet a creatively inspired Voyageur guide who will engage you with stories of the past: When our waterways were our nation’s highways and the Fur Trade was the significant force in the exploration of our western lands. Be inspired by the power of water and how this glacier fed river system continues to be of utmost importance in Banff National Park.

Going for a paddle in a 12 passenger Voyageur Canoe is easy, fun and interactive. Voyageur Canoe trips can be enjoyed by everyone including families with children, and no paddling experience is necessary.
