Our Funniest River Experiences

We love to laugh. And there is no better place to do it than on the water.

River culture itself tends to bring on the humour. Through pranks, jokes and all-around funny experiences while running rapids on the river, there sure are a lot of laughs shared between the team every day.


Favourite Parts of our Day!

We are a tight crew here at Glacier. Like one of our crew members said, “we really are a family here.”

And it’s true.

Our seasons are short, but they are intense. We really do spend an inordinate amount of time together.

From the drivers to the office, everyone here at Glacier Raft Company plays an important role in ensuring all our guests are out having a great day on the river. Each one of us has certain responsibilities that force us to live out different parts of the day. So, inevitably, we all have features of the day we enjoy more than others.

4 Common Misconceptions About White Water Rafting

With many adventure activities, there can be a lot of nerves attached to it – especially if the sport is completely new to you. From worrying about experience level to wondering if you need to know how to swim, there can sometimes be a lot of hesitation and tension coming from those who have not spent too much time in moving water.

But, experience is the key to understanding. If you don’t try, you truly will never know the excitement and joy that is white water rafting.

4 Reasons We Love the River!

Many reasons have led us to spend our seasons hiding away in a small mountain town. Whether it’s the location or the people, we all choose to live in Golden for various reasons.

But more often than not, it’s a lifestyle choice fueled by passion and a love for the outdoors that has brought us to live in a town with a world-class river floating through it.
