    International guides with a great sense of humor paired with beautiful scenery make for a great outdoor family adventure. We had about 20°c weather the day we rafted and were happy to have both the wetsuit jacket and the blue shell overtop that were offered. We felt safe at all

    People of staff and the guides of the boats were really sweet, attentive and excited, which pass me the impression that it was going to be a great day. I felt secure, warm and all my concerns were dissipated after the orientation process. Everything went well and I enjoyed the

    Hi Julizzi, Thank you for sharing your experience! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the day, we like hearing that people felt safe out there. The trend is that the water levels start to drop as the season winds down. Earlier in the season is where you'll find the water levels to be higher, due to more melt off the glaciers and warmer weather. Each section of the river we raft is about 13 kms, and depending on the time of year, takes anywhere from 1 - 1.5 hours to raft. We hope to see you in the future for another ride down the Kicking Horse! Thanks again, from everyone here at Glacier.
