We had an unforgettable day river rafting with Alpine Rafting. Ico was our guide. He was very knowledgeable and fun to be with. We spent the whole day smiling and laughing! The scenery was beautiful! The shore lunch was delicious! We were so glad we picked Alpine Rafting for our day on Kicking Horse River!

Went with friends to Rafting on the kicking horse river in Golden,BC. Whole rafting experience is unforgettable with alpine Rafting. Beautiful locations along the river pathway. The instructor is knowledgeable and experienced. He gave us proper instructions and helped me when I accidentally fell in the river. Even people who cannot swim can go Rafting with all the help we...

Awesome trip for a big group (or a small one too). We had 12 in our group and split up 6 and 6 and had a couple of strangers (not for long) join our raft. We did the full trip so we had lunch, which was freshly grilled at their mini campground and was absolutely delicious. Jake was our guide... More

Did the Kicking horse classic and it was an amazing experience. Right at the start there are a couple rapids right at the beginning to get you warmed up and excited for whats to come. Halfway down we stopped for a great lunch, better then i had expected! After lunch we hit the more wild part of the river and... More

We did the lot... and thank goodness did the last roughest bit, thrilling. Great fun had by myself and 2 teenage kids with big praise to our guide and the staff. The upper section is suitable for anyone, the middle bit starts getting interesting and the lower section is fabulous! Did it in summer 2015.

Thanks for taking the time to write the review, Stephen! We are happy to hear you and the kids had a great time. You were lucky enough to experience the lower when we still had access to it. We are keeping our fingers crossed for next season! More

We looked at several rafting companies on TripAdvisor. We selected Alpine Rafting based on TA reviews, itinerary, and cost. We were very happy with our choice. We had a great afternoon on the river, with Nice as our guide. He was fantastic, and I think we had smiles on our faces all the way down. Check out their website photos... More

My husband and I went together: had an absolute blast, would do it again and again and again. Our instructor, nico, was an absolute blast and very informative. Had such a great group of people we went with and everything was so well organized. We can not say enough about it: be prepared for a work out and great time.... More

Every time I come to golden I go white water rafting. It's a great way to get outdoors for a day or half a day if you want the shorter version. I would not say this is physically challenging but you need to be able to hold on tightly when going thru some of the rapids or else you will... More
