River Rafting

River rafting on the Kicking Horse River is a blast.

The wildest conditions occur from May into late summer, when glacial melt water roars through dramatic rock-walled canyons towards the Columbia River Valley at Golden. Seven rafting companies operate on this Canadian Heritage River, each with certified and experienced guides running rafts for four to six people. Be prepared to paddle, and anticipate getting wet as you navigate this epic class III and IV whitewater.

Along the way, enjoy the scenery and watch for wildlife and the CPR (Canadian Pacific Railway) trains that share this spectacular valley.

Kicking Horse Rafting Packages

Rafting packages on the Kicking Horse all offer similar excitement. Typically, trips range from a relaxing 10km/6mi trip that is suitable for five-year-olds, to a marathon raft journey that starts with the same easy upper section and ends with the “rattle your teeth” class IV rapids of the Lower Canyon. Note that the Lower Canyon is closed when the river reaches the advanced class V level.
