  • We are not able to offer our riverside BBQ lunch due to Covid-19. A light snack and drink will be provided instead. Because of this, the price is reduced from $169 down to $149.
  • To guarantee it’s only your ‘bubble’ group in a boat, you can also consider our ‘BOOK A BOAT‘ option for groups of 4-8 people and save $242.55.

The foamy whitewater surges beneath you. You feel your stomach drop. Your wet hands grip the paddle and you squint through the cool spray.

You’re barreling down one of Canada’s wildest rivers and not even the glacial water can wash the smile off your face.

Our full day trip on the Kicking Horse River is the type of thrill that will leave you buzzing for days afterwards. The journey takes you through the upper & middle canyons (otherwise known as one of Mother Nature’s best roller coasters) and includes a hearty BBQ lunch by the riverside (taming the Kicking Horse will make you work up an appetite!)

The rafts pull over at a couple of beautiful waterfalls throughout the trip, allowing you to take a short walk, swim and dunk your head in the pristine falls if you feel the urge.

In between the moments of splashing through the class 2, 3 and 4 rapids there will be stretches of calm water – giving you a chance to gape in awe at the craggy peaks of the Canadian Rockies all around you.

This 4 hour rafting tour runs 7 days per week and is our most popular adventure – a true Canadian experience.

My friends have gone rafting but it’s my first time. Is this okay?

Absolutely! This is not a problem at all. No experience is required to go rafting as our guides will let you know exactly what you need to do. You will all get to travel in the same raft.


Sure! The best way to experience rafting is to actually go rafting but hopefully this video will be the next best thing


We don’t advise that people bring anything with them on the river. There is always a chance cameras will get lost or wet, and you will be paddling so there isn’t a lot of time to be taking pictures anyways.

People often want to bring their own GoPro cameras. We do have helmets with GoPro mounts, but we tell everyone that there is a chance the camera could get broken or knocked off. Many cameras have been lost in the river – we think it is safer to leave the filming to us.  Our guides will have GoPro cameras and we have a professional photographer on shore.  Photos and videos are available to look at and purchase after your trip.

The only thing that should be carried on is medication such as asthma inhalers and epi pens etc. Our guides have small dry bags to keep these safe.


This is common question that we receive. Our wetsuits come in an assortment of sizes.  Our maximum weight limit is approximately 300 lbs (136kg) due to safety reasons and the size of our gear.
