Guided Canoe Trips on the North Saskatchewan River

​The upper North Saskatchewan River is widely considered one of the best wilderness paddling trips in Alberta. The river originates at the mighty Columbia Icefields in the heart of the Canadian Rockies, travelling over 1,200km through pristine mountains, boreal forest and rolling prairies before emptying into Hudson Bay.

The stretch between Nordegg and Rocky Mountain House is one of the most scenic along the river. Join us for an unforgettable adventure as we experience wilderness camping, beautiful foothills scenery, and optional whitewater. This incredible outdoor Alberta adventure is sure to create memories that will last a lifetime!
