The Kicking Horse River is the ultimate whitewater rafting destination in the Rocky Mountains guaranteed to provide the thrill of a lifetime. Many of our guests return year after year because, as they know, no two runs down the Kicking Horse are ever the same! The Blaeberry River is a family rafting trip in Golden, BC. Follow the historic trading route of explorer David Thompson. This gentle river float is a scenic raft trip through the peaceful Blaeberry Valley in the Rocky Mountains. This class 1 – 2 glacial fed river meanders its way through high mountain peaks before entering an enchanting canyon of gentle curves and vertical rock walls. Watch for animals, birds and wildflowers as you help your guide navigate this two hour journey. We provide a light snack half way through the trip for you to enjoy while relaxing in the evening sun. « less

The trip on the river with Jair, celebrating his birthday, was great. Unfortunately our youngest daughter was younger than 16 and not allowed to raft the whole river. We have to come back than to do the whole river ;) because it really tasted like more. The "base-camp" is really nice and laid-back and the old schoolbus is for us... More

My wife and I had done this trip on the Kicking Horse river many years ago ,which we really enjoyed. As we had planned a trip that would take us through Golden again, I suggested we try rafting again. When we arrived the day of our trip, all was going as planned, until the point we had to get out...

Hi Garth, Thank you for the review. I'm sorry you found the carrying the raft part of the trip unenjoyable. The first section where we took out and carried the rafts after the middle canyon is mandatory because of an un-raftable section between it and the lower canyon. So boats need to be loaded on the trailers. After driving around... More

4 of us ladies made a trip from two different states in the US--we booked a day to go White Water Rafting. We were extremely pleased with the staff and had a WONDERFUL time. Our guide was Kris--he made our trip fun and "educational"! I'd highly suggest this company to anyone thinking about it.

This trip was not my first time rafting although it was my first time down the Kicking Horse River and with this company. I was not disappointed in the slightest. We were invited to sit and talk to our guides by a fire in the morning while we waited for all of the guests to show up and there was... More

So much fun! I really was completely terrified and was "this close" to chickening out. I had a malignant brain tumor when I was sixteen and since then have had issues with balance and strength on my left side. So the thought of being in rapids was not anywhere near the top of my list. The guides were incredible! So... More

Second time on the river and first time with Glacier. Will definitely be back and will only book with Glacier! Isaac was a fanatic guide and the crew put on a day you will never forget. Completely recommend the full day on the river!
