May Long Weekend Ideas:

Wondering where to go this Victoria Day long weekend?  Wondering what to do with your family or friends? Wild Water Adventures has THE perfect May long weekend idea.  Join us whitewater rafting on the Kicking Horse River and have the best long weekend … ever! Don’t miss out on this fabulous Rocky Mountain adventure. The May long weekend is all about spending time with family and friends, so pack the car, take a drive and join us on the river. If rafting, then fully enjoy Mother Nature with some hiking and camping. After all, May Long Weekend is when summer fun truly ‘kicks’ off!
Our Whitewater Exciter trip is just that … fun and exciting. The waves are BIG and the rapids frothy. In other words, rafters will definitely get splashed! There are 14 sets of named rapids to paddle through. It’s hard to stay dry with waves that are gi-normous. All we ask is that you please listen to your guide and hold on. This particular section of the river is long and tricky. It is, therefore, no wonder the Whitewater Exciter is our most popular trip!

Who Can Raft The Whitewater Exciter?

Because of the river’s BIG character, we require every rafter to meet two very important qualifications. First, everyone must be at least 12 years old.  Second, they must ALSO weigh at least 90 pounds (or 41 kilograms). This, of course, is all in the name of safety, and the Wild Water Adventures crew takes guest safety very seriously.

Where To Camp:

Nothing says ‘long weekend’ better than sleeping in a tent! Both Banff and Yoho National Parks have campgrounds open from the beginning of May. Check out the list of Banff and Yoho options. In the town of Golden (20 minutes from the RiverBase), the municipal campground is open year-round. There is also a campground in Canmore, 20 minutes beyond Banff.

Where To Hike:

May long weekend ideas are bound to include spending time on a trail. Just minutes away from our RiverBase, is a picturesque (and family-friendly) hike not to be missed! Wapta Falls is a spectacular waterfall on the Kicking Horse River. Fortunately, the waterfall is upstream of where we raft!

Emerald Lake (20 minutes from the RiverBase) is just as it sounds; an emerald-green lake nestled amongst the mountains. The lake can easily be walked around, or longer alpine trails explored.  Iconic Lake Louise is just that … iconic. Stroll along the lake or easily hike a bit higher up for lovely views of the turquoise-coloured water.

May long weekend ideas, in Banff and Yoho National parks, are endless. Take the time to explore. You won’t be disappointed.
