When driving from Calgary to Wild Water Adventures RiverBase for your trip on the Kicking Horse River, allow approximately 2.5 hrs from Canada Olympic Park on the west side of Calgary (If coming from the South or SW of Calgary, allow 2.5hrs. If coming from Calgary International Airport area, allow 2.75 hrs.)
Heading west on the Trans Canada Highway #1, you’ll pass by turnoffs to Kananaskis Country and the towns of Canmore, Banff, Lake Louise and Hwy 93 to Jasper. If you need to stop en route for fuel or personal needs, Canmore offers plenty of gas stations and fast food options.
Approximately 20 minutes from our RiverBase, you’ll pass by the small town of Field on your left hand side. Continue along the Trans Canada Highway #1. You will be getting close to our RiverBase when you see the highway expand to four lanes and become divided with a concrete median. At this point, you will have left Yoho National Park. You’ll also see a number of large billboards on the left hand side of the highway. Watch for the Wild Water Adventures signs.
You’ll see a deceleration lane on the right. Take it and slow down to make the right hand turn off the highway. The road takes you to the right, over a small bridge with a cattle-guard on top. Continue along this road, under the highway and the bridge to the stop sign. Turn right. In approx. 200 yards, you’ll see the entry road on your left to our RiverBase. Park in the area on the right and c’mon in to say “Hello” to our RiverBase Managers and team and get your paperwork and payments finalized and get prepared for a magnificent day on the Kicking Horse River!
