There is no simpler way to spend an afternoon than river-tubing. Take a seat and enjoy the cool splashes of water while the river does all the work. We found a near Edmonton lazy river where you can float through an ancient gorge.
Just one hour west of Edmonton, in Entwistle, you can find Pembina River Tubing. Instead of trying to research where it is safe to drift on the water on a pool float, they do all the work for you.
It is an unreal adventure and such a fun way to be on the water. You'll drift along the Pembina River through a gorge created in the Ice Age. Along the winding route, you'll float past all sorts of rock formations and towering cliffs.
The tubing company will provide you with everything you need, including your tube, life jacket, and even a shuttle to bring you back to your car.
This year they will be opening on Friday, June 19. But things are slightly different this summer. Now you can only join if you reserve a spot online.
Per person, the cost is of $28 to $32, depending on the inflatable tube's size. This covers all your essential supplies like paddles and a life jacket, plus the shuttle.
There is a $5 fee for your group, which can include up to six people.
If you have your heart set on bringing your giant unicorn pool float, you can.
Just keep in mind, you need something durable enough not to pop if it hits a rock.
We don't know about you, but this sounds like exactly how we want to spend our weekend. When the temperature is scorching, the last thing you want to do is something active.
If you think so too, make sure to invite your friends to plan a day you'll never forget.
