Afternoon Adventures in Golden, B.C.

Golden BC brings the adventure. It offers so much to those visiting this town – rafting, paragliding, mountain biking, skydiving. It is common for those passing through for one day to feel overwhelmed by the choice of activities available to them.

We have realized that sometimes the mountains capture your heart during the day. And while we most certainly still offer full-day rafting trips, it is the reason Glacier Raft Company is now offering various afternoon trips to accommodate those who would like to see some river-action in the evening.

Heli Rafting on the Kicking Horse River!!

Floating down the Kicking Horse River offers quite the view. Surrounded by the mountains, a trip on the water offers a rather unique perspective of the Canadian Rockies.

Ask any members of our staff and they will rave about the stunning scenery that you will experience when rafting down the river.

But how about seeing those breathtaking silent peaks from above?

Our Favourite Adventures

We love to live an adventure, which is why the majority of us here at Glacier Raft spend a lot of our time chasing them. From kayaking different rivers overseas to hiking through the wilderness, we continuously find ourselves spending seasons exploring new terrain and experiencing new cultures.

Even though the reasons we seek out the destinations we do may be vastly different, they all seem to have something in common: they have a way of pushing us out of our comfort zone.

5 Best Mountain Bike Trails in Golden, B.C.

Paddling down the Kicking Horse River is clearly our specialty. And although we love the river and the thrill white water provides, we here at Glacier adore the many activities that come along with living in a mountain town.

Our amazing location in the heart of the Rockies has led Golden to become a leading destination for one adventure activity that leaves you breathless and excited to hit the trails!

We Saved the Lower Canyon!

As many of you have likely heard, we’ve spent the last month dealing with the issue of CP Rail denying us access to the Lower Canyon of the Kicking Horse River.

For those who aren’t familiar with the Lower Canyon, it is an amazing stretch of river that starts off with a 4 km stretch of continuous class 4 whitewater. It flows through a beautiful tight canyon and ends with a float through the Town of Golden.

We are very happy to announce that we did come to an agreement and rafting will run as normal this summer. Woohoo!
