We did the kicking horse classic today. The first part was the warming up. After the nice bbq we did the real work. Wet all over, what a thrill. Thanks again for this trip and also for helping us with our problems with another rafting company located in Banff. We're glad it worked out this way.

My husband and a friend of ours who was up visiting from Florida drove up from Banff to raft the Kicking Horse river with Alpine Rafting. Even though there are companies located in Banff who offer the trip, we heard such great things about Alpine and chose to book with them. We didn't regret it one bit. The staff (from the office staff to the guides) were friendly, informative and organized. We felt well taken care of and safe in their hands.

As the lower canyon was closed, we rafted the middle canyon. There weren't enough people to fill our boat (it was a Monday afternoon in May), guides in training joined us for our trip down. It was an absolute blast rafting with a bunch of guides. Everyone was fun, friendly and had a great sense of humour and adventure. Our main guide was Simon and I can't say enough about this guy. He was so friendly, open, and had the greatest personality, just a genuinely great guy all around. After we had rafted the middle section, Simon asked if we wanted to go again, which our reply was an astounding "hell yeah"!! We're so glad we got to raft twice that day, it really made for a great adventure.

We will be back!

First time writing a review about a trip that i have been on, but i felt it was worth it. Went rafting with Alpine on a guy's trip(13 of us), we had two boats and two great guides Simone and Scotty. We went the end of May and had a semi warm day. The water was cold but we didn't notice once we started paddling. We got soaked and dunked and had a blast. I would recommend Alpine to anyone headed to Golden to go whitewater rafting.

The views down the canyon are spectacular. I went on a day that was overcast with heavy rain, but they provided gear to keep everyone warm and (relatively) dry. All of the guides were incredibly friendly and informative. The lunch that was provided was a great bonus!
