We had an absolute blast! We went as a bachelor party of 12. I can GARENTEE we will all return. The guides were great. Well trained, engaged and I am sure they had as much fun with us as we had with them.

Alpine was fantastic! I searched the net for awhile trying to determine which rafting company was the best, and after going with Alpine I know I made the right choice! Our guide, Heather, was awesome. She was very experienced and super fun! Alpine was also the only company taking people down the Lower Canyon section of the River which was... More

Everyone at Alpine did a great job of letting us know what to expect and made us feel very secure. Even when the waves were pouring in the boat. The safety briefing scared my wife but once we got going she felt very secure and loved the experience. The guides are very professional and skilled at what they do.

Our group of 7 had an amazing time riding the upper and middle sections of the river on the Kicking Horse Classic. Our guide, Pete, did an excellent job of instructing us and leading us on a great trip. We definitely recommend Alpine for anyone looking for a great rafting expetience.

We booked the longer more expensive trip on the river two days before the trip only to be told upon arrival that we'd only be doing the upper part of the river due to seasonal conditions. We ended up doing the same part twice but since conditions seem to persist for a significant length of time one would assume they... More

Our guide was fantastic and the rapids were big. We had a great time! The expedition was very well organized. Safety was definitely a priority.

In our three-week vacation in Canada, this rafting trip was an absolute highlight! We originally planned to do the family trip only, but boss-guide Simon recommended an upgrade. He was right, the family trip only features a couple of rapids in the beginning and after that you just float down the river, perfect for families with (small) children and perfect... More

Our raft leader was Heather and she was awesome. She was the leader on the boat and kept us all safe and confident. The meal in between upper and lower level was outstanding. It was the best chicken I ate on my whole trip which included a high end restraint in Golden with a $50 price tag to it. We... More

Had a great time with alpine rafting. Super professional and entertaining. You do get wet and you do get the option to jump out and float down rapids! Make sure you do it! Oh ya seen a baby bear on the trip too

We did the Kicking Horse Challenge and it was fantastic! The instructors were all great, we didn't worry about anything and lunch was very tasty! We would definitely recommend booking with Alpine for anyone wanting to raft in Golden!
