On September 10th, 2016 we took a rafting trip with Wild Water Adventures on the Kicking Horse River. They had a unique way of presenting safety rules being very comedic. Marcy, our guide, did a fantastic job making sure we had a wild ride while keeping our raft safe and us informed about what's coming next on the river. We... More

This is a very exciting raft ride. There were class III and IV rapids all the way. It was a wild ride. The guides spent time before the trip with briefings so that we were prepared for eventualities. They did not minimize the risks of various hazards and showed how to cope with any that might arise. This gave confidence... More

This company's reputation is well deserved. After checking into our hotel in Lake Louise, the first thing we did was book our spot with Wild Water Adventures. We opted for the most popular option - the Whitewater Exciter. For someone who's only had a few whitewater rafting adventures, I felt like this was the way to go. And we were... More

This was the best time ever ! We were a party of 4. From the time Josh picked us up at our hotel I knew we made the right choice. He was so informative about history, where to go and about the area in general. Then we arrived and greeted. Josh had given us instructions on what was going to... More

A group of 4 of us went, two were beginners but it didn't matter because they got is up to speed and we enjoyed the Tradition adventure. The water was cold but they had wet suits and fleeces! Our guide Vero was amazing and staff kept it fun the entire trip. Would go again and highly recommend!

Get a package deal. We started with scenic chairlift ride up mountain for awesome views of Lake Louise. Then we enjoyed a hot, healthy lunch buffet in the lodge. Later, after getting all suited up, we went whitewater rafting. It was exhilarating! Hot drinks and cookies were waiting for us back at the RiverBase. The entire Wild Water staff was... More

Visited Canada and Alaska in mid-August and this trip was probably my favorite excursion of the four tours I did. If traveling from Banff, give yourself some extra time to get to the base as it's a little tricky to find and instead of 35-45 minutes, it took closer to 60. The directions e-mailed from Wild Waters were perfect so... More
