Whitewater Rafting Bow River and Horseshoe Canyon

History of Bow River in Canmore, Alberta

Winding around the foothills of Alberta and extending onto the prairies, the Bow River is a scenic spot. The First Nations peoples used the reeds that grow along the river’s banks here to create bows, giving the river its name. The river originates in Bow Glacier and runs south of Lake Louise, through Banff and Canmore.

In recent years, the unique geology of Canmore-Kananaskis has drawn more than just nature lovers. Several Hollywood blockbusters have been filmed here, including Legends of the Fall and Brokeback Mountain.
