Best of Both: Sulphur & Smoky
This is an excellent way to get your feet wet and try out rafting with young kids, seniors
or disabled people. Much of this trip is a gentle float down the Smoky River Valley,
surrounded by the incredible Rocky Mountains! As you are entertained by our wacky
guides, you’ll be lulled by the soothing nature of the river and wilderness. But if you
want to spice things up a bit... never fear, the water guns are near! The Smoky River is
our water fight battleground! Things really heat up and everyone gets cooled down by a
refreshing blitz of glacier water! Let loose and attack your family members or co-workers,
or even perfect strangers! If you’re lucky, you may even catch sight of a mountain goat ,
moor, deer or elk as you row merrily along. This trip finished with a bang as we hit the Big
Rapids at the end: a safe set of class 2+ rollers that give you a taste of white water.
After 30-minues on the Smoky River, we stop for lunch: nachos, salsa & sour cream + selction
of wraps + potato salad + hot chocolate and iced tea.

ITINERARY: Meet us at the Rafting House AT your trip time (map). Finish payments, sign the waiver/medical form, change into rafting gear, and hop on the bus. It’s 3km to the river, plus a 5 minute walk into the canyon. The trail is steep, those with walking impairments or vertigo may require assistance. At the river, there’s a safety talk, and we check life jackets and helmets before launching. Spend 1-1.5hrs paddling the twists and turns on the Sulphur, then, after 30-45 minutes on the Smoky, we serve a tasty riverside lunch. After lunch, we get back on the river, pull out the water guns and the battle is on! Younger kids can paddle and brave guests can float beside the boat! Finish with a bang as we hit the Smoky Rapids: a big set of class 2+ waves. There is a short hike up to the bus: about 200ft over uneven ground. We ask able-bodied guests to carry paddles and other small pieces of gear. After the boats are loaded, it’s a 20-minute drive back to town.
