4 reviews
The Kootenay offers up the best family whitewater rafting trip in the Canadian Rockies of class II-III rapids. It is great for children as young as 5 and grandparents alike.
Here at Kootenay River Runners we are all about having fun, but we equally focus on safety and quality. Our guides are trained thoroughly and certified in swift water rescue and wilderness first aid. They get to know the rivers inside and out so they can provide you with an experience that will leave you with memories for years to come. We also update our gear regularly for not only safety but comfort as well.

Thanks so much for the review Caroline! The Kootenay is definitely a great trip to 'wet the feet' with its beautiful scenery. We would love to see you back on our Kicking Horse River at some stage!

Never felt like lost. Always felt confident and safe. Guide Andrew is very knowledgeable. Rapids are pretty mild. If looking for more of an adrenaline rush try kicking horse instead

I'm not sure they supply waterproof clothing, more like a wetsuit that keeps you warm (including booties and potentially gloves), and you wear a bathing suit underneath. Bring a towel and dry, warm/comfy clothes for after.
