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

Three sections of fantastic rafting. The first is filled with expansive nature and mountain peaks. You get to know your guide, who in our case was one of the biggest highlights of the day. Lunch. Second leg you is real fun, you get to go through some stronger rapids and you learn how to react to directions from the guide.... More

We all enjoyed our experience with alpine, they took us through some class III and IV rapids with ease - all of us getting soaked in the process. They provided us with all the necessary safety equipment and a briefing so we knew what to do in almost any situation that could arise. We had a lot of fun paddling... More

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

Within a month of this event I attempted contacting her by phone several times... More
