A great start for beginners and families. The Milk River is a low volume and slow moving river, however there are some rapids, up to class II that add some excitement. This trip offers sand stone canyons and hoodoo walls, grass lands and rolling hills. This is a great place to learn with an easy start then building features leading to the class 2 rapids. Finish with a day of exploring the stunning Writing on Stone World Heritage Site!
The Milk River is the southern most river in Alberta flowing into the Mississippi River basin. this river slowly winds its way through grass land and farm land. carving deeper into the land it exposes sandstone cliffs and hoodoos. eventually leading the the amazing Writing On Stone world heritage site.
