Excellent grade 3 & 4 rapids on the kicking horse river! All guides were very knowledgeable and skilled. Mike, our guide was fantastic. The first half was a bit slow with family rafting, the second half picked up nicely. All in all, a wonderful experience....More

Had a fantastic time on the Kicking Horse with our guide Jake. He made it an exciting and informative ride. These guys love what they do and they pass it on to us. Next time we are going to try the heli-rafting!

Had great fun with Alpine Rafting! Very well organized trip with delicious BBQ in between. I highly recommend Jake as a guide: Very knowledgable and likeable person! (and isn't as loud as some of the other guides ;-)
