Our group were all older, (56 - 62), and had never rafted before, but we had a blast!. It was the most fantastic fun and a highlight of our trip to Golden. If you want to go but wonder if you're over the hill for that much excitement, go for it. You won't regret it! Gumpy was a fantastic guide,... More

We have rafted with Alpine Rafting before and have never been disappointed. Our guide was confident and hilarious, great combination! I'll be rafting with Alpine again.

A group of six of us did the Kicking Horse Challenge and had a fabulous time. It was very well organized, the guides were professional, friendly and funny. Lunch was amazing. And the best recommendation I can give? I had so much fun, I'm going back solo again next month.

Very slick organisation, with wetsuits and gear provided and bus trip to top of the rapids. Guide good and kept us entertained throughout and the actual white water rafting was excellent.

When we woke up in Golden, the morning mist reminded us we were in the mountains. By the time at headquarters, the sun was over the mountains and the mist was gone. My son looked on the net as to which rafting adventure company in Golden had the best prices and decided on Alpine. They offered 5 different rafting adventures... More

My mother and my sister and I went on the Kicking Horse Challenge and had an absolutely amazing time. Our rafting guide, I believe his name was Mike (Kiwi guy), made the adventure fun but also safe. This organisation does a remarkable job. Also the lunch they include is delicious. Thanks for a great time Alpine Rafting. Will be definitely... More

My friend and I had never white water rafted before and were a little scared. The guide was fantastic!! He was reassuring, laid back, knowledgeable, friendly and gave us good information on what to do in the boat. The views are amazing! The guide gave us tid-bits and information about the area as we travelled along the river. The lunch... More

We drove 90 minutes from Cannmore to get there but every minute was well worth it. This company runs a well oiled machine. Despite the fact that there were about 100 people that showed up to go rafting there was really no waiting and our time was used very effieciently. We were given everything that we needed for an amazing... More

Our guide Luke was awesome. We did the challenge, well worth the money. The lower was the BEST!! All the staff were friendly and knowledgable! The office was nice, but there were no changing rooms to get into or out of the wetsuits. Could have more and a little bigger outhouses. It was nice that everything was provided though. Lunch...

We did the upper and middle canyons for our son's 14th birthday. We will definitely go with Alpine again but will skip the upper canyon and go down the middle and lower canyons. Gumby was the best guide!!
