We went rafting with Kootenay River runners in the beginning of September and had an awesome time. We did both the upper and lower canyon. The staffs there are very knowledgeable about the area and the river. Thanks to Gonzo and Justin for looking after us.

The staff and guides were phenomenal. Our guide Katie was friendly, great with the kids and a wealth if information. First time for us so we chose 1/2 day but next time would go full day, we also saw 3 bald eagles and a golden eagle

We had an awesome time. Out guide James was terrific. They had plenty if gear for the little ones so they would stay warm, which helped keep to trip enjoyable for all. This was our 3rd time rafting with this company and I would recommend them every time based on our experiences.

Our party of three did the full-day Kootenay river run. My daughters are young, so this was the best option for our family. It was fantastic!!! We were picked up in Radium and the bus driver (Terry) was very punctual and super friendly. Our guides (Ian and Katie) were so knowledgeable about the valley, the wildlife, the waters, and safety.... More

My husband and I were celebrating our first year. As we passed through Radium, we decided to stop in and see if Kootney had anything available. Amazingly, Ian was more than accommodating and made sure to schedule something quickly even though they're obviously a well used company. My husband has gone many times and said it was the best and... More
