RED DEER RIVER (CLASS III -IV)
Come and ride the "BIG RED" with the people that pioneered rafting on the Red Deer river's rugged waters more than three decades ago. Since 1971 we are a # 1, rafting choice to Albertan's, Canadian's and visitors from all over the World. Our professional guides with many years of experience will take you through some of the best rapids in Alberta (see our photo's).
We offer Half day to Three Day tours. On your overnight trips our river camp will accommodate you in small rustic cabins where the sounds of the rushing waters echoing through the forest will lull you into a peaceful sleep. After a wild ride on the river you will be ready for our kitchen to satisfy your hearty appetite with our famous home cooked meals and baked goods.
In the evenings you can enjoy a game of volleyball, softball, horseshoes, darts or just relax around the fire swapping stories of the day and then if the mood strikes you, you can finish up your day by unwinding in a relaxing sauna followed by a dip in the river.
We supply all rafting equipment, life jackets, wetsuits, booties, spray jackets, helmets and transportation from our rendezvous point.
