Tour Description

Introduce your children to white water rafting with the Family Adventure trip on the upper section of the Kicking Horse River. Especially suited to families wanting a taste of adventure, this trip is a relaxing, scenic float offering opportunities to view the Canadian Rockies from a unique perspective. There are some splashes and small rapids on the Family Adventure, but we like to call it a fast paced float.  You’ll get wet, but not soaked.

After a morning of relaxing fun and a waterfall stop, enjoy a BBQ lunch and drink on the banks of this beautiful rushing river before heading back to our base.
