Had an amazing, adventurous and tiring day! The helicopter flight just added a whole new element of adventure to our rafting experience. What a day!

The staff were able to suit us up quickly. Their system is very efficient. The guides were knowledgeable of the water conditions and guided the rafts so that we really experienced the rapids. The morning section was more of a family float with opportunities to get out and swim beside the boat. There were some Class 3 & 4 rapids... More

Glacier Raft Company took us out for an amazing day.

I had the opportunity to go on this trip with several experienced rafter and I was pretty nervous as this was my first time rafting and I'm over 50! It was an amazing experience for all of us. We felt the guides were exceptional. We did all three legs of the trip and each one was better than the last.... More

What a day! It all started with a hilarious safety talk that had you actually paying attention to what they are saying. The team was extremely helpful at getting our gear fitted and we made our way to the drop off zone. Once we were there we had a more detailed safety briefing and then it was all aboard. The... More

Four of us just rafted with Glacier on Saturday, the last day of the season and we all had a BLAST! This was my second time rafting the Kicking Horse River, but first time with Glacier Raft Co. and I have to say, I'm partial to these guys! Our guide Mike was a great storyteller and had great rapport with... More

My wife and I spent a great day white water rafting on the Kicking Horse river. We're both in our 50's and it was no problem at all to handle the rapids and activities. We went on August 26th so the water wasn't running quite as fast or deep as it does earlier in the year. If I went again... More
