I had an amazing day rafting with my friends. Glacier's staff was friendly,helpful,and made sure everyone had fun. I highly recommend glacier for those wanting to go rafting , the guides are very good at keeping you safe while having a good time out there. My guide was Jair and my group had a awesome time with him , he was a lot of fun and was calm and confident while taking us down the kicking horse. All the staff is very welcoming and happy to answer any questions. Without a doubt if your going rafting go GLACIER.

I generally only bother writing Trip Advisor reviews for very good, or very bad, experiences - these guys are definitely the former! :-)
Have done a number of WW rafting trips and this one excelled both in terms of quality of run and general organisation.
If you're "swithering" about whether or not to book, don't - just get on and do it!!!
Thanks for a great afternoon....

A group of us had an amazing day rafting the kicking horse river. Our guide Marcie was so much fun, she had heaps of interesting facts and really made the day for us!
We were well looked after from start to finish. Also fortunately for me (because I'm always cold!) they gave us heaps of good gear to keep warm :)
Highly recommend glacier, and if you're lucky enough Marcie!

We spent this afternoon rafting down the Kicking Horse River on the day that the river has been at its highest, therefore we did the middle section twice as the lower section was just too crazy apparently. We had a fantastic day with Jair, informative with lots of humour - how we like it! The equipment seemed to be very good... Of course you're gonna get wet but plenty to help layer you up to keep you warm on the river. A really friendly bunch of guys running the day, excellent briefing and so much fun!! Shame we're not staying as we'd definitely be back for more! This is the reason why they're #1 on Trip Advisor! (Oh and they give you a beer at the end of the day and warm you up around a camp fire!)

I was reccomended Glacier by some friends and it didnt disappoint! My guide was Mike and we had such an awesome trip that we came back the following week. Great value, Experienced and fun guides and a killer meal in the middle. Cant recommend a trip with Glacier highly enough, if you get the chance to spend a day on the Kicking Horse with these guys, jump at it! Thanks again Glacier, see ya next summer for sure!
