WHITE WATER ADVENTURES WITH WILD WATER! WHO IS WILD WATER ADVENTURES?

Thank you for taking the time to find out!

 

Put simply, Wild Water is the passion that came from a dream of two people, Ted Bilton and Liz Webber (who are still involved daily with every aspect of the operation) about 25 years ago. We both had been involved in rafting and outdoor adventures for quite some time in Canada, Australia, United States, England and New Zealand, and believed that more could be done for you, our guests, who choose to come rafting to add value to your experience. We wanted to do it better than we’d seen it being done…more attention to detail, more equipment to provide for you at no charge, more comforts, more (and better) risk management, more interaction with your guides and other staff, and…

 

…more fun for you!

 

We have been the only owners that Wild Water Adventures has ever had…our company was built, not bought, and we take great pride in that.

 

Our staff that choose to return each summer do so because they also share that passion for quality and making you “feel good” during your time with us. They strive to “WOW” every guest, and would be pleased if you gave them the privilege of showing you what they do, and the passion with which they do it.

WHERE IS WILD WATER?

Wild Water Adventures owners Ted Bilton and Liz Webber offer white water rafting adventures in Canada, contributing to Banff tourism by providing one of the most exciting things to do in the Banff, Alberta area. Our main rafting office is located in beautiful (well, it truly is!) Lake Louise, Alberta and the historic Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, in the main lobby.

 

Our operations headquarters are at our “RiverBase Daylodge” on the famous Kicking Horse River, about 40 minutes west of Lake Louise and 1 hour and 20 minutes from Banff. Get directions here!

YOUR RAFTING GUIDES

Hand-picked from around the world, we choose guides who are capable of doing so much more than simply steering a raft down a river. Our guides are river professionals. They are storytellers, naturalists, humorists and more. They are serious about safety but love to have fun on the river with you. All our guides have a wealth of experience and regularly upgrade their qualifications and skills for first aid and river rescue. Our guides are Trip Leaders, which is the highest level of certification that can be obtained. Learn more about our trusted Kicking Horse River rafting guides here!
