This was my 3rd time rafting on the kicking horse river and second time going with wildwater and it was fantastic! I definitely recommend wild water adventures. The staff are always all very friendly and welcoming. My guide was Landon and he was fantastic made the trip fun and knowledgeable. This time I went in September when the water is lower which made the trip not as rough as it was when I went in early july. It was still amazing and you definitely will still end up soaked! I recommend if you enjoy more of a thrilling experience to go in june/july when the water is at its highest. The rapids are way more intense and a lot of fun!

Thank you for your review! We're happy to hear that you had yet another fantastic adventure with us and that Landon kept everyone safe and entertained. He is a fabulous guide. Different times of the season do offer different experiences. The waves are bigger in the early season, but technical guiding precision is the key to late season rafting. We look forward to welcoming you on the river again, whether it be high, medium or low-water season! -Deborah & the Wild Water Crew

These folks know what they are doing. From sign-in to training, they've got you! Water was like being on a rollercoaster for and hour-and-a-half. Will be returning to the kicking horse!

What a great afternoon down the river. My wife, daughter (16) and son (14) had fun time. The trip leaders were safe, engaging and fun. We rode with Carlos (originally from Costa Rica) and was great. He made the trip fun and knowledgeable about the river and local wild life. This trip was well worth the money and we would recommend it to anyone.

This trip was amazing. We went just after my sister’s wedding in Golden. The staff were helpful, knowledgeable, kind, and funny! You only need a swimsuit and a towel for after as they provide everything! Our boat guide was Carlos and he was the best. Super funny. Super knowledgeable. And made the trip even more awesome. Will do it again and again!!!
