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

My husband & I were with a friend on our rafting experience. Our friend & I had never been whitewater rafting before and we figured it would be fun. It turned out to be amazing! We started out around 12:30 PM with a great BBQ, including steaks. We definitely needed the energy...There was a huge group there of around 60... More

This trip was the highlight of a 10 day holiday in the mountains. The guide was amazing and the experience was exhilarating. I completely understand why they continuously get such high ratings.
