1. Middle and lower canon trip is most recommended (upper is kinda lame). Especially the first few kilometers of the lower canon, which is really really good experience. 2. The tour is well organized, from gears, safety guide, instructions, to the transportation and snacks. 3. Download free pics from facebook is a good thought! 4. The "white" water is kinda... More

Our adventure was chosen for my future daughter in law's Stagette. We had 10 women in the raft with our guide Scotty. He was very personable and did his best to get us down the river safely. No one fell in and we didn't get hung up on anything. The river has class 3-4 Rapids. Our ride was in two... More

We ventured on the family white water rafting and had a good time even though it was absolutely pouring with rain throughout. On the whole it was very tame and mild apart for one rapid earlier on within the first few minutes of going on the river therefore perfect for little ones. As my two sons are a little older... More

We had a mixed raft from novice to experienced and ages from 22-72 years of age. What a blast of fun! The guides very carefully explained the rules, checked gear and positioned rafters well for weight and strength. Our guide managed our expectations with as much skill as he guided the raft. I felt confident in his attention to safety... More

Having never done any white water rafting before we were both excited and slightly apprehensive as to what was coming. No need to be as the guides were great at the safety procedures and very very funny. We had Eoin as our guide and he chatted all the way along let us practice all procedures along the way. He made...

Very professional, very safe - and loads of fun. If you get a chance, go rafting with these guys, they know what they're doing and the Kicking Horse River is amazing! Tip for Families - if you want a "light river cruise", only book the first half of the trip (until lunch - which is very good btw!). For those... More

Middle canyon was done 40 min. The thrill was great. I want more ... Alpine rafting should email us one day... More
