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.

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!
