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!

Train to be a Raft Guide!

Adventure, travel and exhilarating days on the river are all part of being a raft guide.

Glacier Raft Company is now offering a 12 day Professional and Recreational Raft Guide Certification Course in conjunction with the College of the Rockies.

5 Lessons Learned Working at a Rafting Company

We love where we work!

From the river to the mountains to the town of Golden itself, the environment we immerse ourselves in daily creates quite an enjoyable atmosphere. It is a reason the majority of our staff return year-after-year.

But just like the river itself, there are always challenges to overcome.

And that is the beauty of rivers – they are constantly flowing, and always changing. It is one of the many reasons it has taught us so much throughout the years.

We know some people enjoy the element of surprise when it comes to a new experience, and others like to know in advance exactly what to expect.
