What to do in Edmonton on a summer weekend?

Covid-19 update on April 3, 2020: Paddle season is still a few sleeps away, but the ice on the North Saskatchewan River is disappearing with humongous steps. As of now, we plan to kick off the season as planned, like early June. We will set up all the necessary precautions needed for our operations to help flatten the curve and keep our paddlers safe.
Until then … stay healthy!

Edmonton Canoe is recommended by

On summer weekdays after work, you can enjoy your Happy Hour on the river. In other words, you drift through the downtown river valley, take your mind off the job and watch the sunset over Edmonton.

No paddling experience is necessary. You quickly learn how to steer your canoe or single kayak and, in addition, the current takes you downstream.

Furthermore, you can bring your own private canoe or kayak and we shuttle you and your boat up the river. From there you follow the current back to your car.
