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

Being wet and cold might not seem like fun, but with Glacier Raft, it is fantastic! The whole setup is slick from the moment you arrive, to the time you leave. The instructors are friendly and experienced and dedicated to making it safe and fun, which it was. We were soon kitted up and on the bus to the river... More

This was the second time I had rafted down the Kicking Horse (first time in about 15 years). Very professionally run and incredibly friendly guides. Will definitely be coming back when the lower canyon is open.

Everything was well organized and they took care to discuss risks and clarify any concerns. Our guide Chris was fun and clearly experienced. I felt we were really well... More

This is the place to go for a great rafting trip in the Rockies. The guys work really hard to make sure everyone has a great time. We had a hoot! Also - the safety is top notch too :) The Kootenay beer is a nice touch!

We returned to golden after 24 years for another Glacier Raft Company adventure. The weather was worrisome, but turned out to be wonderful. The rain the night before left the river 60cm higher and ready to be run. The food exceeded our expectations, the river was clearly at a great stage but the real stars of the day are the... More

This is the second time we have been with this company and each time they have been excellent. The instruction before you go is very professional and they are all so very nice. The BBQ we had so far was really good. I had steak and it was a really big piece of steak. It was a fantastic day out... More
