A local favorite! The Kootenay river holds a special place in the heart of our river community. A free flowing mountain river abundant with wild life and white water. This continuous river has some challenging wave trains and rock gardens with calm sections between each of the more significant sets. There are deep canyons and waterfalls as well as eagles and abundant fishing opportunities. This trip comes with training for those who may be less experienced. The first day, if required, can involve a day of training to build on skills and prepare for the trip. This training holds a morning of flat water and an afternoon of river time. We will review self rescue, companion rescue, stroke improvement, maneuvers and river running strategies. Additionally we can supply raft support to make the trip more accessible to kids or people that may require more support. A raft as an addition can support up to four kids under 13 or two adults. This may require an additional guide in which the cost will be added to the base price. Depending on if the group choses to take the day of training the trip start location will be different. Every day you can expect some level of white water, beautiful scenery and established campsites.
