I have now enjoyed three Alpine Rafting whitewater experiences, and will book again for the summer of 2016, since we are making this an annual tradition. The company is first class all the way, from checkin, orientation, equipment, guides, lunch, and above all the on-river experience. The Kicking Horse River is exciting and challenging, but we feel confidant under the... More

We wanted to do middle and lower canyon (Ultimate whitewater - $135) but were told after we arrived and paid that lower canyon was closed and we would have to do middle canyon twice. Later we found out lower canyon is open very rarely each season, which is not mentioned on website. There was no option to just do 1... More

What a blast this was. Went earlier this summer and it was so fun. We had a group of 9 which got us a discount and a full boat. The lunch they served up before we left was good. I recommend jumping in the water, you'll never forget it. Would definitely go again.

The most fun and laughs we have had when getting wet for a long time. We were only able to do the Afternoon Tour and sadly were not able to extend to take in the final section but still, what a great experience. Of the four of us I am the one who does not like getting wet and cold... More

My boyfriend and I recently did the ultimate rafting trip and had great time. It was quite a drive from where we were staying in Banff but definitely worth the trip out as it seemed to be the best rafting in the area. The guide was fun and experienced at rafting. The only negative comment we would have is that... More

Had an awesome afternoon rafting on the Kicking Horse River. Our guide, Luke, was really good at giving instructions and directions. He made the trip really exciting for us, but we always felt safe. Such a good spot to go rafting, the scenery is amazing. All the gear is provided, you only have to bring your swimsuit. If they'd have... More

My wife and I are over fifty and wondered if class 3 and 4 rapids would be too much for us to handle. I am not a swimmer and my wife is not an athlete but we love the water, and add to that the beauty of the canyon, we decided to give it a try. Were we ever glad... More

We did the ultimate challenge on the kicking horse river and it was worth every penny! We were originally going to do the full kicking horse challenge but there wasn't enough people on the day so we only got to the the ultimate which is the middle and lower sections of the river. However we found out when on the... More

Gorgeous September day to be on the Kickinghorse river. Owen, our guide was amazing. Friendly and professional and quick to resopnd. Did the all day challenge with a wonderful bbq lunch. Even with the water level down a bit the rapids were a great ride. Would do this again any time. Everyone at Alpine was friendly and helpful. Debbie G
