Tour Description

Experience the breathtaking rush of the Kicking Horse River with this all day white water rafting adventure. Begin with a relaxing scenic float on the upper section, then charge through some class 3 rapids! A stop between the upper and middle allows you to catch your breath and enjoy a delicious hot riverside BBQ lunch.

Now you are ready for serious white water thrills as our experienced guides navigate the massive power of class 4 rapids in the middle and famous lower canyon sections of the Kicking Horse River.  Finish your tour with calmer water that brings you rafting gently through the town of Golden BC. Altogether this white water tour covers 33 kilometres of the upper, middle, and lower sections of the Kicking Horse River!*

*Note: At times of high water,  or road closures causing inaccessibility, the lower canyon may be closed. During those days, if we have enough participants, we run the middle section of the river twice, which is as wild a ride as the lower canyon, especially during high water! 



This package is your best choice if you are looking for serious whitewater rafting thrills as you travel to Golden BC from Revelstoke or Calgary, Alberta.
