This company has great service! Guides and management are fantastic. We started out with the family raft which was great for our nine year old but I would suggest for anyone 11 and older to go further and finish the Rapids. Great fun!

My partner and I are in our late twenties and booked with the Glacier Raft Company to add some excitement to our BC vacation! We chose the Discovery Adventure due to it's advertised mixture of calm float time and white water since I was nervous about rafting, while my boyfriend craved adrenaline. This turned out to be a perfect pick... More

My family and I all had an enormous amount of fun, though half of us were anxious/nervous about white-water rafting for the first time. Our guide Kris was able to put those worries at ease, and he ensured that we were all having fun. I've been rafting before with other companies (though not in this region of the world), but... More

My wife and I were recently in the area visiting our son and decided to book a trip down the kicking horse river. We booked with Glacier as they were rated #1 on TripAdvisor. We booked the Discovery Day Rafting trip. We arrived early and sat around a campfire waiting for everyone to show up. Once they all arrived (approx... More

We have rafted with Glacier every summer for 7 years now. This year we experienced the Heli-Rafting trip. A ride in a helicopter and the lower canyon, a fantastic combination. It was quite possibly our best trip yet. As always, the Glacier crew delivers a great day. Thanks so much. See you again next summer.

We were pressed for time but wanted to experience the kicking horse river while on Golden for a wedding. Glacier Raft Co was the perfect solution. Everything was quick, efficient, safe and FUN!!! The guides and owners were wonderful ambassadors to interior BC and all it can offer.

We had a great time doing the upper portion of the Kicking Horse. The trip was a little short but the guides were excellent and professional. Lunch was excellent! Highly recommended!!

We had a family of 7, youngest was 12. Took the longer whitewater Discovery trip, which included lunch. Food was really great- better than a different trip we have been on. I really appreciated the effort to use real plates and silverware to reduce waste. Photographer was great and our pictures were really fun. Our guide was great, too, keeping... More

This is probably the most exciting and enjoyable activity session we've ever enjoyed together. It provided thrills, enjoyment, new experience and being 'back to nature'. Our trip was enjoyable from the opening meet and greet around the campfire, relaxed but comprehensive instructions session, the humour of the guides, the beautiful locations we rafted, accessing wonderful waterfalls, swimming in the rapids...
