We were a little apprehensive the day before our planned rafting on the Middle and Lower sections, as we weren’t far away in Banff where the temperature had fallen to zero and we were in a blizzard with massive snowflakes. We called and were reassured that temperatures at Golden were 10 degrees higher. Well we needn’t have worried, because although... More

This is the first time my family has gone white water rafting. The trip was extremely well run. The guide did a great job teaching us how to paddle as a team down the rapids. The trip was exciting. The bbq lunch was great. No complaints at all. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone thinking of white water... More

An exciting white water adventure with experienced and knowledgeable guides. A true adrenaline rush along with stunning views of one of Canada's heritage river and canyon. Our guide was extremely capable and personable. Thanks for a great afternoon!

As first-time rafters we didn't know what to expect but with the Alpine Rafting crew we had an amazing time. Felt properly instructed, felt properly guided and steered, felt properly drilled for what to expect. We did the Classic run which was a 'family float' (and don't get me wrong, it's enough to wake you up in the morning right... More

We booked the challenge and had so much fun. Our guide was Pete who was so nice and funny and helpful. All of the guides knew what they were doing and kept us safe every moment of the tour (at one point we nearly flipped but the guides solved the situation very fast and secure!). The upper and middle part... More

Booked a rafting trip with another company and they could not take us so we where told by them to book with Alpine. I'm so glad I did. Best long weekend I have ever had. Lunch was amazing. Got soaking wet which was the best part. Thanks for a great time. Will recommend and for sure will be back.

We went down the Kicking Horse 4 times this summer June, July and twice in August. We were so impressed with Alpine Rafting after our first visit we chose to go with them each time. No two runs were the same; each one was exciting and tons of fun! We took advantage of the free river side camping Alpine offers... More
