NOTHING BUT THE BIG STUFF – PURE WHITE WATER!
Pure White Water is the ideal white water rafting trip for anyone who wants to jump right into the big stuff. This trip starts after lunch and it rafts the two biggest white water sections on the Kicking Horse River - the middle and lower canyons.
There are several areas of continuous class 3 and class 4 rapids – this stretch is renowned for a reason!
Your adventure starts with a great section of class 4 known as ‘Portage and Shotgun’, and it doesn’t let up from there. It’s constant action as you make your way down the river, hitting rapids such as Man Eater, Roller Coaster and Twin Towers.
The lower canyon provides a 4 km stretch of continuous class 4, and finishes with a float back through the town of Golden. You’ll finish right beside our rafting base in time to relax around our fire pit and enjoy a complimentary beverage as a part of our famous ‘Glacier Cheers’.
*on Saturdays from July 4 to August 29, Pure White Water starts at 8:30 a.m.
* 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!
* Price is also subject to a $3.00 Land Use Fee and 5% GST per person
