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?

New this summer at Glacier are Heli Rafting tours, which combine a helicopter ride with a white water rafting trip, inviting guests to experience a section of white water on the Kicking Horse River inaccessible by land.

Hop into a helicopter and fly through the beautiful mountain ranges of Golden B.C. to the riverside of the Kicking Horse River where our rafts begin to depart down an infamous stretch of white water known as the Lower Canyon.

Showcasing a mighty river that braids through the Canadian Rockies, the quick – but spectacular - helicopter ride moves upstream so you get a taste of the rapids you are about the raft. Not only that, but your adrenaline will be pumping, as the views alone are enough to amp you up for your journey down the river towards Golden.

Renowned for its stellar white water, the Lower Canyon is home to some of the best rapids in the Canadian Rockies. This trip gets you into the heart of the action as your guide maneuvers you through a 4-kilometer stretch of white water before ending with a scenic float through the town itself.

Although it is a fairly quick helicopter ride, you will experience the magic of the mountains from above while you later enjoy the vertical rock walls of the canyon.

There is no better way to live an adventure then by scratching two activities off your bucket list in one go.

So come live an adventure with us!

Cheers, from the Glacier crew.
