We took the all day trip on the Kootenay and our guides Ian and Katie made sure everyone had a fun, informative, and safe trip. This company takes care of all of the little things like providing proper clothing and good meal breaks to make sure everyone is comfortable. In our boat, Katie made sure to involve everyone and guided the boat so everyone got "hit" by white water. We recommend the all day tour as the scenery and water were better in the second half of the float.

A group of friends and myself just did the Kicking Horse rafting trip - and it was wicked! Really fun rapids, great guides and the best bbq lunch. We felt really safe with our guide Justin, and it was nice to meet new people and have a chat while cruising down the beautiful river.

The trip is just long enough to take it all in and relax, as well as get the adrenaline pumping with the grade 3 and 4 rapids!

Awesome day, can't wait to get back there.

A group of 5 of us headed down to Golden to do the ultimate tour. Before hitting the water we paid the extra $10 and got a massive feast of a BBQ. This was my first rafting aventure and I seemed to have jumped right into the deep end - massive waves, fast rapids but definitely an amazing time. It was a great day out with friends and I'd recommend the trip to anyone looking for thrills, whether it be your 1st time of 50th!

Myself and my boyfriend recently did the Toby Creek Trip near Panorama. First of all the guides Jeff and Chris were great, very knowledgeable but kept it fun and light. This rafting trip is suitable for all the family young and old alike. It is a little over 2 hours and the scenery is just breathtaking. The river itself isn't too challenging but still exciting enough that we enjoyed ourselves. Its certainly given us a taste for white water rafting - bring on Kicking Horse

We rafted the Kootenay River on the half day tour. My wife had never been rafting before and didn't want anything too crazy. we talked to the staff and a guide and was assured that this tour was exactly what we were looking for. They were right. Our guides, Ian and Katie, had great knowledge of the area with lots of stories and trivia to keep us entertained and did a great job of making it a fun experience with everyone on the rafts.
