I booked a family whitewater rafting trip on july 4th for august 9th and had everything confirmed. Well while I was on vacation I luckily checked my emails and discovered they cancelled my trip. They sent that that email on August 7th at 1336h.This quite frankly pisses me off for more than one reason. First of all they have a... More

I attempted to make stagette arrangements with their sales and marketing representative two months prior to the event I was planning for. Emails of her response were vague and delayed, however inferring a likely probability of being able to create a custom trip for my group. Within a month of this event I attempted contacting her by phone several times... More

My partner and I had a wonderful experience with Alpine Rafting after booking up for the Kicking Horse Challenge. The day started with us arriving 30 minutes before our start time as asked but this turned out to be overcautious as we signed one waiver and were asked to return to the office at the allotted time so 10 minutes...

Having some friends visit from abroad occasioned me to send them down the Kicking Horse River under the care of Alpine Rafting. There really was no fault to be found. The organization from beginning to end was excellent. The lunch-time meal was excellent (included in the cost). The whole experience was excellent. A very good job done. I will highly... More

I booked my spot with them in April (went rafting in August) and they gave me a 20% early bird discount. So, call early and mention about getting a discount. Once you get there, you sign some waivers first and then gear up. They take you to the river in a yellow school bus and then you get in the... More

We took up the alpine rafting challenge and went down on August 2nd, 2014 in a group of 8 and had an amazing time of it. Alpine staff was excellent. Location was easy to find. The raft and other equipment was safe/sound. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to go for a weekend adventure.
