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.

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

We went rafting on June 14 and had an amazing experience. We had a group of 9 for a special occasion - a 50th birthday party - and were greeted with a birthday cake when we arrived at the launch site. What a thoughtful gesture by the Kootenay River Runners and great customer service! The manager, Justin, and our guide,... More

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.
