Best from late June through September, the route features cliff-jumping opportunities and pleasant water temperatures.

Mountain High Adventures
From its base at the Stanford Resort, nestled in the Kootenay Rockies, Mountain High Adventures’ team of first-aid- and swift-water-rescue-trained guides embarks on aquatic voyages. Adventurers perched atop inflatable kayaks or whitewater rafts brave the rapid-studded waters of the Raging Elk Canyon and Bull River armed with nothing more than a paddle and a team of mermaid bodyguards. During scenic floats, passengers don lifejackets to explore calmer waters without their boats, relaxing at swimming holes, taking jaunts along a trail walk, or cliff-jumping off a canyon wall. For a long-term adventure, youngsters ages 8 and older can take to the water for five days at the time during summer adventure camps, whose activities range from rafting and river surfing to mountain biking and ziplining.
