In the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, you'll find Mukwah, a whitewater rafting outfit dedicated to taking groups of all kinds through the rapids of the Upper Red Deer River. These thrilling adventures combine scenery and adrenaline into half-day, full-day, and even overnight trips, where participants feel the force of the river as they run through rapids with names like Big Rock and Sauna Hole. Experienced instructors trained in CPR, first-aid, and swift-water rescue guide each trip, and load guests up with all the necessary safety gear, including wetsuits, life jackets, helmets, and more. After all, Mukwah, meaning bear, was named after the great protector of the Ojibway tribe.
After their trip, guests are welcome to repose back at base camp, which brims with relaxing amenities. Mukwah also provides camping and kayaking packages.
