What You Can Expect

Full-Day Whitewater Rafting on Kicking Horse River

Rafting on Kicking Horse River

This white water adventure is the perfect opportunity to get your feet wet at Kicking Horse River, one of the North America’s top rafting spots. Whether you’re new to rafting or an experienced pro, this tour will provide a taste of the amazing scenery and adrenaline-fueled white water of these Canadian rapids.

After a safety briefing and suiting up with the necessary gear at the rafting office in Golden, your rafting day begins in one of the calmer sections on the Kicking Horse, rolling along river’s glacial waters, where you’ll learn to coordinate paddling with other raft passengers. Take a break for a BBQ lunch of steak, chicken, grilled salmon or veggie burgers, plus vegetable platter, potato wedges, salad, cookies and hot or cold drinks. Then kick off your afternoon with a ride on the thrilling Class 3 and Class 4 rapids of the Middle Canyon of Kicking Horse. 13.7 miles (22 km) of whitewater lay ahead in the Upper and Middle Canyons. Take on the challenge!

This trip returns to the Alpine Rafting Office approximately 5.5 hours later. As an added bonus, digital  photos from your day of rafting will be available to at no charge!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

Niceto was an amazing tour guide and kept it fun the whole time. They're very organized from start to finish, great experience and liked the fact that they offer free photos uploaded to FB at the end that you can then save. The river was pretty slow the first two hours, and then it becomes Class III the last hour after lunch. Lunch options were ok, not bad. They had a veggie burger, hot chocolate, and tea/water, etc.

Wonderful experience. Very well organised. The lunch bbq after the first section of river was lovely, it also gave us a chance to chat to overs. It was a shame that we couldn't ride the lower section of the river as the water levels were too high so we redid the middle section a second time. This was not the fault of the rafting company as they have rules to follow for our safety but they did all they could to make the second ride as good as the first. We did buy a DVD of photos but would have liked to have been able to have bought a video if one had been available. Would highly recommend this company. Look out for Simon though cause he will give you the ride of your life. Thank you Simon, top guy
