This trip has class 3 rapids and is great for first timers or younger children. I prefer the class 4, by far, but this was a family trip and our children's first experience. The guide was terrific, the lunch was great and the time we spent was a lot of fun. The children really enjoyed it and I would recommend... More

Our group of 8 rafted the Kootenay, Toby Creek, and Kicking Horse and all 3 trips were excellent. The guides, bus drivers, equipment, and food were awesome. We will definately go back and will recommend Kootenay River Runners to everyone.

We had a fantastic, exhilarating full day on the river... Got wet, wet and wet some more! Our guide, Katie, really made the trip so much fun as well as giving plenty of facts about the area. Both the morning snack and lunch exceeded our expectations. Overall, a very personable service; we felt very well looked after. Definitely recommend this... More

We did a full day rafting tour, and it was a great experience! We did the easier course and none of us had a lot of experience, but no one found it too difficult- would definitely recommend! Ian was our guide and was very knowledgable about the area. Will definitely come back!

My boys and I had a wonderful first experience white water rafting thanks to the guides. They made it extra fun by singing happy birthday to my 12 year old on the river. Hard to beat that! Fun, safe and knowledgeable.

First time whitewater rafting for us and we weren't sure how it would go but it turned out excellent! Staff were super friendly and knowledgeable and helped everyone out. The scenery was beautiful and the rafting was exciting without ever feeling like you were in danger. If you want to try whitewater rafting, these are the people to go with!... More

Our family enjoyed our afternoon rafting on the Kootenay River. It was the perfect intro to rafting for our kids- not too wild, but many fun rapids that soaked us! Our guide, Katie, was very skilled, very personable and made the trip memorable. The lunch that was prepared for us was fantastic as it had a great selection to suit... More

My boyfriend and I were contemplating which white water rafting company to go through and what tour to do as there is so many options. Someone recommended this company so we went with it. The guides were amazing and we had lots of fun! Highly recommend the "kicking horse" tour! It was definitely worth the $$

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.
