I go rafting with these guys at least once a year. They are awesome! If you're rafting I recommend you make sure the lower canyon is opened. It's by far the most exciting and intense part of the raft day. Lunch is always yummy, and its just what you want before the adrenalin burns your energy for the second half.... More

Myself and 9 friends did the Kicking Horse Challenge (Upper, middle and lower canyons) on the June 20th, 2015 morning trip and we had a fantastic time! Staff made booking it very easy, they set up a group and then everyone could just sign up under it individually on their own. Our guides Mike and Jeff were very knowledgeable and... More

Staff is very focused on safety and supply everything you require to go. They even had xtra fleeces if needed because it was very cold. Very exciting and very safe and well worth the $$$$ . At the end of the trip you can purchase pictures or tag yourself on facebook they post all the pictures the same day.

We signed up for the full day kicking horse challenge and it exceeded our expectations. The staff were organized, professional, safety oriented, experienced and very fun. The water was very cold and the weather wasn't great, but that had no effect on our level of enjoyment and the wetsuits provided really did their job. My only disappointment was the bagged... More

My girlfriend and I recently took on the full day Kicking Horse Challenge with Alpine and had the adventure of our summer. Our Rafting guide, Pete made the trip fun and informative and kept us all safe, but definitely not dry! :D Be sure to consider their free camp site as the crewmates on your raft are likely to make...

Lynda and I signed up for the 'tame' trip and ended up continuing on the middle Rapids and a great time we had too! We are in our 60's and were a little wary about the trip but we need not have worried as the guides were brilliant and very professional, we through ally recommend these guys! Rob and Lynda,...

We did the middle and lower canyon trip mid may and the sun was out, the water was a fairly low level - which meant we could do both canyons and get an exhilarating ride. Johnny was our instructor. He was fun, entertaining and he made us feel at ease, but made sure we got very wet too. We swam... More
