We never went whitewater rafting before, so we were excited, and some a bit nervous, to go. Once there, the employees make you feel right at home with the ease of conversation and hospitality. Our guild was Mike, and he kept us more than entertained for the whole ride. He was very knowledgeable, and knew every inch of the Kickinghorse... More

I had such a great time here! Fantastic company. All of the guides were very helpful, friendly, and knowledgable. I had so much fun on the rapids and also got to learn a lot of history as well. They provide you with all the gear you need and even go above and beyond the basic wetsuits to provide you with... More

This is a very well run organization. We were on the last trip of the season, and it was a blast. Water levels were a bit low, but that was just fine since this was our first whitewater rafting trip. We enjoyed the class2 and 3 waves, and got plenty wet. Our guide was fantastic, from Costa Rica, and a... More

Being fortunate enough to live in Banff National Park, I have the privilege to wake up each day to the beauty of the mountains and all it has to offer. For the past 7 years I have also had the privilege to experience one of my favorite pass times, to ride the wild white water down the Kicking Horse River,... More

The staff made this experience - thanks Javi, Andrew, Trent and Josh! They were so friendly, professional, funny and knowledgeable. Even though it was late in the season and it was raining, the trip was exciting and worthwhile. If you are going to raft Kicking Horse River make sure you do it with Wild Water Adventures!

We did the traditional trip and had a blast! Carlos was our guide and was a lot of fun and very knowledgeable about the river. At the base station, they give you all of your equipment and give you a very thorough safety talk at the river. We had three guides with us that day - Jack, Carlos and Tarquino... More

We rode the Kicking Horse River in August, 2014 with Carlos as our guide. They handled all aspects of the trip in a professional manner, making sure we had a great and safe trip. This is no leisurely float down the river - you will get doused in water barely above freezing, but that's the point of rafting in class... More
