Explore the North Saskatchewan River

There’s something special about floating down the river that makes the views of the surrounding mountains even better. Maybe it’s the smell of the forest, the sound of water or just what happens when we slow down to enjoy the moment.

Our scenic float tours are available on the upper North Saskatchewan River, between Banff National Park and Abraham Lake. This scenic stretch of the river takes us through areas where wildflowers are growing following recent forest fires, through the Kootenay Plains and to small lakes that are hard to reach otherwise.

Our small group size allows us to be flexible while on tour and to slow down to enjoy the journey. We take care of all the logistics and equipment so that all you have to do is enjoy the amazing destinations that the Nordegg and Abraham Lake region has to offer.
