NOTHING BUT THE BIG STUFF – PURE WHITE WATER!

Are you someone who’s always looking for the biggest adventure? The most extreme experience, the fastest ride, the most adrenaline, the biggest thrill?

If this sounds like you, you’re going to get along nicely with our Pure White Water trip.

Think boat swamping white water, glacial water face shots, rope gripping rapids and uncontrollable cheers from everyone in the raft.

Pure White Water rafts the middle and lower canyons of the Kicking Horse River – the 2 biggest sections of white water around.

BUT, not only are you charging down the river, you’ll be flying in a helicopter too. The lower canyon (which starts with 4 km of continuous class 4 white water!) is only accessible by heli.

Glacier Raft Company is the innovator of heli rafting in Golden and we hope you can experience this amazing stretch of river.

Yay for heli rafting! Yay for new adventures!

This trip is limited to only 32 people per day, so give us a call if you have any questions, or book today to secure your seat!

*This trip is offered on Saturdays, Sundays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays

* No experience required. Our guides will let you know exactly what to do!

* The Kicking Horse lower canyon can only be run at specific water levels, and it will be closed at certain times throughout the summer when the water becomes too high for us to safely run it. When this occurs, we run the middle canyon whitewater section twice. Not to worry though – at high water, the middle canyon is as big as it gets!

*This trip is non-refundable from the time of booking. Due to the commitment required on our part with the heli provider we cannot issue a refund for any reason.

*We need a minimum number of people to raft the lower canyon. If those numbers are not met, we will not be able to heli into the lower canyon. If minimum numbers are not met you will not be charged for the lower canyon portion of the trip, or for the heli flight.

* A $3.00 Land Use Fee and 5% GST is added to all trips.

I have been rafting with Glacier for the past few years, and it has been hands down amazing every single year. The helicopter ride was just icing on the cake to our already amazing rafting experience. Keep up the great work guys, see you next year!
