Our first experience rafting white water was exceptional! We went on the Kootenay River full day trip, and loved it so much that we went onto the Toby Creek the next day, and the Kicking Horse river two days later! The guides on each river were so stupendous that we were hooked and couldn't help wanting to do more. The... More

We took a half day adventure down the Kicking Horse River with guide/stand-up comic Ian. A fantastic experience enjoyed by all of us and entirely appropriate for a family adventure. Our kids (10&7) enjoyed it almost as much as us adults. Absolutely fantastic.

My wife, myself and our 3 teenage boy's rafted with the Kootenay River Runners 7/16/14. The lunch provided by the River Runners was great and our trip down the Kicking Horse was an experience our family will talk about forever. What a well run operation you have. We'd all love to experience the trip again but your a long ways... More

Our first river rafting experience was top notch! We rafted Saturday, July 12, 2014. Our guide Ryan was excellent and absolutely made the trip. We would highly recommend Toby Creek for families with younger children, especially as a first experience with river rafting. Thanks Ryan!!! The Parsons family.

I was a little reluctant to take my five year old on his first rafting trip but was reccomended to go with the team at Kootenay Rivers because of their great guides and safety reputation. They really know their stuff and know how to deal with a crazy mom! My son loved lunch on the water and all the little... More

Wow! What a great day. Rafted the full day on the kootenay. The staff were very helpful all around- from the office to the driver and especially the guides Ian and Katie. The kootenay was gorgeous! A great mix of beautiful views and fun rapids. Our guide, Ian, was very knowledgable about the Region and hilarious. What more can I... More
