An established rafting company offering guided adventure trips on Western Canada’s premier whitewater river is for sale. Located on the western flank of the Rockies in one of the fastest growing resort towns, Golden British Columbia is known as a hub for world-class outdoor adventure. As the business enters it’s 30th year of operation, it has established itself as of the largest and strongest operators in the province. The company maintains land tenure for put ins and takeouts including Yoho National Park, and a 25 acre rustic campground. A restricted number of permits were issued for this river and permits can only be acquired as part of an existing business sale. This successful, turnkey operation commands a strong foothold in its market. Golden BC is located in a heavy seasonal tourism corridor, in close proximity to the Canadian Rockies and Calgary, Alberta. Future growth opportunies should be explored as they are substantial. The 25 acre rustic campground has growth and expansion potential to be a business within itself. In addition, current offerings could be made part of a more comprehensive bundle of adventure products including winter operations. Included in the sale is rafting equipment, trucks, trailers, office equipment, website, online reservation system, retail and retail fixtures. All equipment has been meticulously maintained and is in excellent condition. The seasonal nature of this business lends itself to a great lifestyle for the prospective buyer.
In addition to the whitewater rafting business, a 2 acre commercially zoned property on the Trans Canada Highway in a highly visible location is for sale or lease. The property boasts amazing views and is located adjacent the BC Visitor Information Centre. Ideally positioned as the first turn off the Trans Canada highway when driving west from Calgary, Banff and Lake Louise. A 3,000 square foot facility includes retail, storage space and ample paved parking. There is an immense opportunity for expansion on this front, including billboard signage rentals with Trans Canada Highway visibility. Heavy foot traffic from rafting clients coupled with neighbouring info centre clientele there is serious potential opportunity for retail souvenirs and foodservice. Additional opportunities exist in the acquisition and development of crown land located behind the property as well as establishing a sales and rental fleet of adventure equipment.
