For 40 years, Rocky Mountain Raft Tours has guided adventurers over the gentle rapids of Bow River for up-close encounters with the region’s natural beauty. During the one-hour rafting excursion, which runs from mid-May to late September, experienced guides captain the Sotar raft on a leisurely float, slipping between Tunnel Mountain, Mount Rundle, and the front yards of resident coyotes. Along the river, rafters may spot wildlife such as elk, deer, and bears while passing lush pines and firs, eventually encountering the Hoodoos, which are majestic rock pillars. After reaching the altitudinous face of Mount Rundle and giving it a shave, passengers deraft where a bus awaits to trundle them back to the launch site.
