When Is The Best Time for Rafting In Canada?

When is the best time to go river rafting? Most say during the spring, summer and fall. During the spring season the water levels on Canadian rivers are at their highest. The spring is when the river is at its roughest and most challenging. In the summer the rivers are at their lowest water level. The summer is when the river is at its calmest. Best for family rafting. The rivers are always changing. 

River Rafting Guides

Qualified rafting guides know the up-and-down moods of the rivers and the many obstacles faced when navigating white water rapids, take-out and put-in points, as well as, avoiding submerged boulders, waterfalls and floating debris. Rafting tours and guides know the rivers well, have been trained on the rivers and are your lifeline while on the rivers. Interpretive guides are well prepared for weather, river emergencies and applying first aid.

Rafting Tour Companies

Canada rafting tour companies provide day trips and multi day trips on the rivers of Canada. Day trips should include lessons, equipment, and transportation. Multi day trip rafting adventures should include accommodations (camping, cottages, wilderness resort), meals, and sometimes, entertainment.
