We went rafting with Kootenay River runners in the beginning of September and had an awesome time. We did both the upper and lower canyon. The staffs there are very knowledgeable about the area and the river. Thanks to Gonzo and Justin for looking after us.

Trip was phenomenal!!! Our guide Katie was not only friendly and knowledgable but very in tune to the surroundings of the rivers habitat. An organized tour with a good leader made you feel safe and eager to conquer more!!!!

We took our team for a weekend retreat in order to get to know each other better and feel a sense of adventure. Ian and Katie were tremendous guides for our experience and tailored our adventure to best suit our needs including an amazing stop at a waterfall for a number of team photos. We had a full day raft with a lunch and were shown the best parts of the river. It was so nice to be on a river that was not overcrowded. We owned the river, had the place all to ourselves and felt at one with nature. From bald eagles, to hoodoos, our guides had the background knowledge to help us see the river and its banks in a new way and provided real life images of things seen in books (especially to our Geography students). I would highly recommend both guides and the company as an exceptional group providing a great rafting adventure for a reasonable price.

The staff and guides were phenomenal. Our guide Katie was friendly, great with the kids and a wealth if information. First time for us so we chose 1/2 day but next time would go full day, we also saw 3 bald eagles and a golden eagle
