Canmore Raft Tours and The Mountain City Brew Bus are excited to partner up to offer the Rafts and Crafts tour!

Beneath the towering peaks of the Canadian Rockies front ranges, flows the glacial fed Bow River. Surrounded by forests of pine and spruce, and home to some of the most majestic and iconic animals in Canada, this scenic river float provides guests of all ages the opportunity of a lifetime. Departing within a few minutes walk from downtown Canmore, this professionally guided interpretive tour is perfect for families, friends, and folks of all walks of life. Simply show up at the river and slip into the raft for a relaxing float downstream, as guides share stories about the Bow Valley. The "Townie" Tour is the perfect way to relax at the end of a long day and enjoy the secrets of the Bow Valley.

Meeting us at the take-out, the beer shuttle will pick you up and head out onto the brewery addition of this experience where you will get to taste some beer at one of the locally owned and operated breweries here in Canmore!
