the swimwear we were given was surprisingly warm. the rapids weren't as exciting as i had hoped, but they were good. i think at a different time of the year the water level is a bit higher and the river is faster - they said the river level was 'low' at the time we did it. but on the flip... More

After rafting with them last year, I was looking forward to going with them again this year. Had a couple hiccups with booking (error caused by me), and they were very accommodating on changing it to another date. Tour guides both times have been awesome and enthusiastic. Kickinghorse is awesome to raft, and they make it better! Would absolutely recommend!

We had the greatest day, everything was well planned and we had fun all the way. Fantastic guides, super professional, we felt comfortable and save at all time, and at the same time they are hilarious, telling stories non stop. We can only recommend this place. We feel like coming back again tomorrow!

The whole afternoon was well organised and a definite high light of our Canadian trip. The guides were knowledgeable, responsible and good fun. We enjoyed a sunny afternoon on Kicking Horse with much laughter and an exciting ride.

We brought a group of 13 rafting this past weekend and the weather didn't look very good. The staff at Glacier rafting made our trip memorable. Everyone had a blast in the rain, wind and as we floated into town the sun came out. Our guide Chad was very comical and made sure everyone enjoyed themselves. Amazing views of the... More

I had a great experience with Glacier Rafting Company. My two friends and I had never rafted before, and I can't emphasize enough how fun and exciting this experience was. They start you off on the easier part of the river to get you accustomed to the commands and the paddling. The guides were funny, yet knowledgable. Jare had us... More
