RIVER FLOAT ADVENTURES

Explore Central Alberta
See the city and surrounding area from a different perspective as you float down the Red Deer River. Enjoying a taste of local food on a relaxing evening on the river, head out on a family friendly afternoon float or explore the shorelines looking for wildlife and birds on our morning tour.

Upper Red Deer River Adventures

Looking for something a little more adventurous? Check out the tours on the Upper Red Deer River offered by our friends at Mukwah Rafting Tours.

They offer half day and full day options running whitewater rapids west of Sundre. Book online now or stop by Basecamp + Cafe to find out more.

A Few More Things To Know

We get to play outside on our tours and that means you’ll want to come prepared for the weather. Make sure to dress in layers and come prepared for the unpredictable weather we often get in Alberta. We rarely cancel tours due to weather, as long as we can have a safe adventure. You’ll be amazed at how warm we get snowshoeing at -20C or how much fun hiking in the rain can be!

Need help with your booking or have a few more questions? Stop by our Basecamp + Cafe or give us a call at 403 986-6190.
