Whitewater Riverboarding, Banff + Jasper

See the Canada Guide ›
Banff + Jasper's insider take:

Kayakers float atop rapids; riverboarders ride in them. An especially intimate way to experience a body of water, the sport demands you don a wet suit, gloves, helmet, and booties, then grab onto a boogie board and plunge into icy snowmelt. Kicking with diving fins helps you steer, but you're really more akin to a piece of driftwood—rushing along with the current as it courses through swirls, boils, holes, and waves. This full-body workout provides a trout's-eye-view of the river, and it's nothing like rafting. Canadian Rockies Rafting (877-226-7625;, located just east of Banff National Park, charges $89 for a half day, which includes about two hours on the Class II and III Kananaskis River. You must have a group of eight or more to book a riverboard adventure.
