This fall I had a great conversation with Dave from Wakpa Wilderness Adventures about creating a weekend for the BettyGoHard ladies.  As just about anyone can book a rafting trip and go rafting Dave came up with a unique idea that takes a Ladies rafting trip to the next level.


Have you ever thought about being a raft guide? or maybe getting into kayaking as a sport? This is a weekend you don't want to miss!

Join us for a weekend of rafting and river skills.  Come out rafting with us and experience more than your average guest.  This fully guided weekend will include learning how to swim in moving water, preform river rescues, guide a raft, read rivers and much more.  Don't just sit back and be taken through the river, be part of the action and learn the skills you need to do it on your own.

The Location: Kananaskis Alberta, just West of Calgary - River Class: III/IV

Nervous? Don’t be, most of the rapids are super splashy straightforward fun. There are several more intimidating rapids that can be walked around if you don’t feel up to it. This river will please all levels!

The setup at the Highwood camp is luxury on the side of the river.  With dry change rooms, wood heated marque tent, wood fired sauna and a large fire pit it is all you need after a day of playing in the river.  Not to mention hot meals prepared for you by the experienced chefs at Wakpa.
