River Valley Adventure Co.
River Valley Adventure Co. is best known for its guided Segway tours, which traverse the riverside terrain of Edmonton River Valley, and most recently the beautiful Lindsay Park in Calgary. Located just behind the Talisman Centre, tour guides at this new location boast almost 10 years of experience and lead guests on Calgary's first segway tour.
Back at the Edmonton location, visitors use rental snowshoes, Rocky Mountain Bicycles mountain bikes, or purchases from the shop’s stock of Segways to peruse the web of trails; alternatively, they can rent sporting equipment such as badminton sets, croquet sets, and fishing gear, accompanied by fishing licences more valid than gluing a fishing rod to your forehead. An onsite café brews pots of Intelligentsia and sates adventurers’ appetites with snacks such as acclaimed peanut-butter granola bars.
