Did the Kicking horse classic and it was an amazing experience. Right at the start there are a couple rapids right at the beginning to get you warmed up and excited for whats to come.

We did the lot... and thank goodness did the last roughest bit, thrilling. Great fun had by myself and 2 teenage kids with big praise to our guide and the staff. The upper section is suitable for anyone, the middle bit starts getting interesting and the lower section is fabulous! Did it in summer 2015.

Thanks for taking the time to write the review, Stephen! We are happy to hear you and the kids had a great time. You were lucky enough to experience the lower when we still had access to it. We are keeping our fingers crossed for next season! More

We looked at several rafting companies on TripAdvisor. We selected Alpine Rafting based on TA reviews, itinerary, and cost. We were very happy with our choice. We had a great afternoon on the river, with Nice as our guide. He was fantastic, and I think we had smiles on our faces all the way down. Check out their website photos... More

My husband and I went together: had an absolute blast, would do it again and again and again. Our instructor, nico, was an absolute blast and very informative. Had such a great group of people we went with and everything was so well organized. We can not say enough about it: be prepared for a work out and great time.... More

Every time I come to golden I go white water rafting. It's a great way to get outdoors for a day or half a day if you want the shorter version. I would not say this is physically challenging but you need to be able to hold on tightly when going thru some of the rapids or else you will... More

Our family of 4 had a 10 day trip to Canada , and by far the best part was the rafting we did on the Kicking Horse river. None of us had been rafting before , so we were a little nervous, but from the moment we stepped in and were given wetsuits, a spray jacket and some booties, we... More

It was our first time rafting so I was a bit anxious. Our guide Jake from New Zealand was great! He was professional, knowledgeable and fun! My 14 year old son fell into the water right after the lunch, at first serious part. Jakes swift reaction and his laughing face reassured me and my son was pulled into boat as... More

I went with my girlfriend and neither of us had rafted before. We went on the "Classic Tour" with a super nice guide called Jake. The first part of the tour was okay but not very exciting - however, we learned the basic commands and grew comfortable in the boat. After the very nice lunch, we went down the middle... More

Our family group of 12 (5 kids aged 6-10 years and 7 adults) had a superb time on the Family Whitewater. Enough thrills for the adults and great fun for the kids who loved shooting the water cannon at the other boats. Stopping mid-trip to climb a waterfall on the shore was a much appreciated added extra. BQ lunch was... More
