The guides were very skilled and professional. We had a ton of fun and would recommend Glacier to anyone that wants to have the thrill of rafting big rapids in the Kicking Horse River. The lunch was delicious and at a nice location. Looking forward to going back!

A fantastic white water trip down the Kicking Horse river with expert guides who were professional, enthusiastic and super knowledgeable not only of the river hydrology but also the local history, flora and fauna of the area. Highly recommended this company and the personal touch they offer to all their guests! It was just an all around awesome experience!

ive gone rafting with glacier several times over the past few years. each time is as great as the first. All the staff are super friendly and entertaining, which makes for a real fun day. the rafting was great, views are awesome and the lunch/snacks provided were way better than i expected.

Had to stay san extra day just to go white water rafting but it was totally worth it! Isaac our guide was friendly and hilarious definitely made us feel safe but totally radical at the same time. This is a must do for anyone near the area.

White water rafting was amazing. The guides were excellent! They were very funny but got the point across, including all safety tips. The trip was amazing and I would highly recommend this to anyone. The only thing I would change about my trip is go for the whole day experience rather than just the afternoon!! Be prepared to get soaked... More

This experience is worth every penny. Cruising along with nothing but river and rock face and fellow rafters surrounding me has become my new "happy place." Literally EVERYTHING is provided for you, you basically just show up. Lots of nice extra touches like hauling leftover cookies and watermelon from lunch to a second location, frisbee by the campfire...these guys really... More

You will not be disappointed rafting with Glacier Rafting. A professional, fun and totally awesome crew will make your day fantastic. I would highly recommend the full day trip with lunch. Great views of the mountains in the morning and great whitewater in the afternoon. Lunch was delicious too! This trip is a "must do" for anyone visiting Golden.

I have gone rafting with all companies located in Golden and I have to say Glacier Raft gave me the best experience! I had Kris and Mike as guides and they were fantastic.
