Came from Calgary and winnipeg for this trip and it well exceeded all expectations. Had mike as a guide and he put up with our loud and excited seven person party very well. Would recommend this trip and company to anyone, from the rafting guide to the great lunch and celebratory beer the day was one to remember

We arrived as part of Grand American tour (a little late!) for the white water express. Really appreciated Glacier Raft Company accommodating this and got us signed in and wet suited up very quickly. We joined our bus to find 2 stag parties on board in very good spirits so the journey out to the river passed by very quickly.... More

We did the White Water Discovery trip with Jair as our guide. We are novices at white water rafting but Jair made it fun and knew what he was doing. Safety was clearly important to the company - it showed thru all their guides. Fun day!

We loved it. Mike was a great guide! We had to do the express trip as we were short on time. It was very fun. the kids got to stand in the bow and swim with the boat near the end. Views were beautiful and rapids were fun!!

Highly recommend using Glacier Raft Company if you are looking to take a trip down the Kicking Horse. The whole experience from beginning to end was first class. Highly recommend the "second pass"! It's better the second time around.

Thank you! We really appreciate you taking the time to write us a review. We often hear people enjoy the second lap of the middle more than the first. With all of the white water to experience it definitely doesn't feel like the same stretch of the river - thanks for sharing that. Cheers from all of us here at... More

Loved the rafting! The guides were excellent! Only thing I wish we had were neoprene gloves, water was cold.
