4 Free (or cheap) Campsites in and around Golden, B.C.

From all the excursions that you want to experience, the places you want to see and the people you may want to meet along the way, there are many variables that come together to ensure an unforgettable journey. And where you sleep at night can make or break your memories from a trip.

That is why the staff here at Glacier Raft Company have compiled a list of our favourite free (that’s right!) campsites near our lovely mountain town that we have all tested and tried ourselves, so you don’t have to!

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.

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?

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!
