A PERFECT INTRODUCTION – THE FAMILY ADVENTURE
This trip is the perfect introduction to whitewater rafting. For people feeling a bit nervous about getting out on the water, families with young children, or people who just want to relax and take in the beautiful surroundings, our Family Adventure is a great option.
This trip was designed as a warm up to whitewater rafting because it’s predominately a gentle float. It does, however, contain a couple of rapids near the end to give you a taste of what the Kicking Horse is all about.
The day starts off meandering through the gorgeous Rocky Mountains, and it includes a short hike up to a cascading waterfall. As you continue down the river there is a chance to jump in and go for a swim for those who are feeling up to it.
We’ll hit a couple short sections of whitewater near the end of the trip and then stop for our riverside barbeque lunch.
You’ll enjoy lunch with your fellow rafters, and then our bus will shuttle you back to our rafting base. If, however, you’ve had so much fun that you want to continue on, just let your guide know. As long as there are boats carrying on, they will make it happen.
*The Family Adventure is NOT offered on Saturdays from July 2 to August 27 or on Sunday July 31. We only offer the Ultimate Adventure and Pure White Water on these days.
