We did the afternoon Whitewater exciter trip. The water in the river is about the same temperature as the water in your fridge. We did not find the optional fleece jackets necessary, however as you get plenty warm in the wetsuits with the water proof jackets. That's not to say it won't take your breath away the first time you... More

I recently had my second rafting experience with Wild Water Adventures. The first was last summer with my 3 teenage boys - which was amazing. This past week, we had a group of 10 co-workers go rafting as a "team builder" the group consisted of first timers, experienced, and even non-swimmers. As before, the experience was amazing. Everyone had a... More

The entire crew was friendly, informative, fun-loving and most importantly safety conscious. We had Jack as our guide and Andrew accompanied us. As a couple of mid-60 year olds, we felt like kids! Would love to do it again!!

Hello Connie! I always say the Kicking Horse brings out the thrill seeker/ little kid in all of us. That giddy feeling you get after your first set of class IV rapids is a great feeling that lasts until the end and keeps people coming back for more. Glad to hear you enjoyed your time with us! We would love... More

First thing to note is that while they have a Lake Louise address, the facility and rafting is some distance from Lake Louise into British Columbia. If you're doing the morning trip, plan your drive and leave plenty of time to get there. The facility is clean and the personnel are friendly and professional. They all have extensive experience as... More
