We recently went to Wild Water for a wellness retreat and had a great time! We were greeted by the staff and immediately we felt at home. The guides were very helpful and were efficient in helping us get outfitted with all the appropriate gear. Things were very organized and we did not waste any time getting ready to go.

Our guide Mike was awesome! He was very knowledgable and let us know interesting facts about the area and the river. He was also willing to let us get in the water and float a bit with the boat to see what its like being in the river.

The river was fantastic and offered a great taste of what true white water can be. We even got some little treats after the trip which was an added bonus. Highly recommended.

Thank you for such a high recommendation!

Our guides aim to treat everyone like they're old friends because we hope you'll become just that by the end of your trip. I'll be sure to pass along your thanks to Mike and the crew as well!

The Kicking Horse is really the most genuine whitewater experience you can get in the Canadian Rockies so we hope you'll come rafting with us again soon!

We really enjoyed our afternoon with wild water adventures. As first time rafters, we had a lot of fun and would definitely do it again. A big thank you to the great staff and especially to our guide Andrew !

It's always a pleasure to show first-timers the magnificent Kicking Horse River and we're glad you had a great experience with us. You can now call yourselves "experienced" rafters!

Thank you for taking the time to write about your time with us. Looking forward to another river adventure with you!

The entire crew was friendly, informative, fun-loving and most importantly safety conscious. We had Jack as our guide and Andrew accompanied us. As a couple of mid-60 year olds, we felt like kids! Would love to do it again!!

Hello Connie!

I always say the Kicking Horse brings out the thrill seeker/ little kid in all of us. That giddy feeling you get after your first set of class IV rapids is a great feeling that lasts until the end and keeps people coming back for more.

Glad to hear you enjoyed your time with us! We would love to have you back again for next season!

The experience is top notch, from start to finish. The guides are fun and full of energy - they really take care of you and help to make the experience the best. The facilities are great and professional. And the river... you won't be disappointed. Our group was a family of 4. Mom, Dad and two teenagers (16 and 14) ... The main topic of our dinner conversation that day. I highly recommend this trip.

Glad to hear you and your family loved the Kicking Horse just as much as we do! Our dinner conversations are also centered around our time on the river because there's always something new to see and experience with each trip. It really is an amazing river and it offers some of the best whitewater rafting in Western Canada.

Thank you for your high recommendation. Hope to see you and your family soon for another river adventure!

First thing to note is that while they have a Lake Louise address, the facility and rafting is some distance from Lake Louise into British Columbia. If you're doing the morning trip, plan your drive and leave plenty of time to get there.

The facility is clean and the personnel are friendly and professional. They all have extensive experience as rafting guides, I never worried about their expertise or familiarity with proper safety procedures.

Quality of equipment was good.

We had a group of nine persons which was the perfect size group for one of their rafts with a guide.

I recommend this trip. It was a little expensive I suppose, but we have memories that will last forever. Because we had younger kids, we did the "gentle" trip which still had a number of class III to IV rapids. We even got to practice going overboard and getting back in at some of the calmer sections. The +5 dgC water was exhilarating.
