It was a fun day that ran very smoothly and just as described. Cool to raft on glacier water and although it sounds cold, with the wet suits on I'd say it was more refreshing than freezing. A lot of fun with great guides. Would love to return and do the same trip earlier in the season!

Hi Kelsey! With all the right gear, we promised you that you'd stay warm! The biggest rapids are in June, and we have a great earlybird sale on right now. We hope to see you then!!! :)

We did the family gentle option. There were some exciting rafts at the beginning, the rest was rather gentle, but nevertheless enjoyable. Our guide was knowledgeable and fun. Lunch was tasty. Everything went smoothly. Would highly recommend!

Thank you so much for the great review! We are happy to hear that you had a great day with us on the Family trip. It's a beautiful part of the Rockies to see by boat. We hope you can join us again this season.

Great rafting experience and excellent guides.
The views are stunning and you will experience a real Canadian experience.
We could swim at the end although the water was really cold.
They teach you very well how to perform in the river.
You won't regret!!
Go for it! Also I really like Golden. It is a great place to be around the National Parks!

Thank you so much for the wonderful review! We would love it if you and your aunt could come back again for another trip down the Kicking Horse. July is a great time to visit - nice and warm, and the water levels are still high for some extra adrenaline! We are lucky to have a lot of guides return to work with us year after year.
