Staff members are very friendly, this white water rafting day was awesome, I would recommend it to anyone that would have some sensations (Kicking Horse river), so to those who would rather have a family trip (Toby Creek) with a bit of sensation too.

I found Kootenay River Runners online and chose the half day ride on the Kootenay River leaving from their Radium office. We got on two busses... More

We have just had a wonderful full - day rafting with the Kootenay River Runners! Our guides for the full day - Jamie and Ben - were excellent! The scenery magnificent! This was our kids (6&8) first go at rafting and it was a pure joy. Would definitely recommend.

A great time on the river. The river is easy so it's a great tour for families or first time rafters. All the gear you need is provided & the staff was great.

We took two half day trips down the Kootney River. Our guide, Jamie, was absolutely fantastic. We had school aged kids and it was perfect for them. We loved. Our first day so much we went back for a second day. Best way to see the beauty of the Columbia Valley. V

We had a blast on the 40-ish kilometer trek on the Kootenay River. Our guide Claire was great with the kids. The river was not too aggressive for small children. All the guides and bus drivers were excellent to deal with. Highly recommended!!!

We had a really great time on this trip. The BBQ lunch before rafting is a nice touch and is very tasty. Our guide Vern was a great laugh and made the trip really fun and exciting. If you're a group who wants to hit as much white water and waves as possible then he will definitely sort that out... More
