We loved it! The scenery is beautiful and it is so relaxing to cruise down the river and be out in nature. Our guide, Saxon, was knowledgable, clear and easy to understand and a strong leader. I loved stopping at the waterfall too. The rapids were pretty good but I thought they were better when I went last July. I... More

We decided to go with the heli rafting for our friends stag and we couldn't be happier with our decision. Our guide Mike was awesome, very knowledgeable and fun to ride with. It is definitely worth doing the heli to the lower cannon! Now hurry up and fix the middle canyon so it's raftable and we'll be back!!!

My first time river rafting and it was an awesome experience. The trip was fun, I did the heli rafting and it was absolutely great. The guide was good, lots of interesting facts, was funny and also very good at making sure everyone knew what to do when and how. I would absolutely do this again! Thank you Glacier!

All staff, bus driver, owners, guides, other crew, were so enthusiastic and hard working, and seemed happy to be providing a day of fun for us. The guides wrung every bit of excitement possible from the river. Gathering for a beer afterwards, chatting with other clients and staff was a nice touch. Very fun day! For max excitement visit in...

I joined a day trip with my 15 years old son. I had some rafting experience before but for him it was a first time. He set in front of the raft all the way, was excited.I was glad to see his happy face. Our guide acted professionally, kept the group together, mantained a high spirit, chose the safest line...
