Canada Rivers - Family Day Trips

Road tripping home from Vancouver BC to Montana in couple of weeks. Planning to bring raft and hit some day trips on the river with family (will have 5 year old who is comfortable riding in class 3). Looking to hit Banff area down through Fernie on way back. Do folks have favorites/recommendations for day runs in that area or between Vancouver and Banff that would be good options? Heard great things about the Elk River and picking up that Bow and possibly Kananaskis might be something to consider. Thanks,

re canada rivers

Yes, the Elk is gorgeous. I have duckied it commercially a few times. The regular commercial section however has a very steep put in trail.Just be aware of that. The outfitters use some sort of sled to take the rafts down. The run below is plenty of fun.
