HELI RAFTING – THE ULTIMATE ADVENTURE

Take a minute to dream about your ideal day of rafting.

There might be huge rapids and waterfalls, beautiful scenery and your closest group of friends. A hot lunch, a river swim, a wetsuit that makes you feel like a superhero and a free beer at the end.

You’re there and it’s perfect… but wait...

Just when you think this day can’t get any better, you’re getting into a helicopter. And that helicopter is flying you to the biggest whitewater on the river!

This isn’t a dream – it’s our Ultimate Adventure Heli Rafting trip.

The Ultimate Adventure is the only heli rafting trip on the Kicking Horse River that rafts all 3 sections, and it’s exclusive to Glacier Raft Company - the pioneers of heli rafting in Golden.

The famous lower canyon is known for it’s 4 km stretch of continuous class 4 whitewater, and it’s huge vertical rock walls (this just keeps getting better and better, doesn’t it) and the only way to access it is by helicopter.

If you want this dream to be your reality be sure to book soon. Space is limited to only 32 people per day.

p.s. Everything we mentioned in your dream is in fact part of the Ultimate Adventure… except the friends part. That’s up to you.

 

* 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.

*We hold the right to cancel a trip if water levels fluctuate to a level that makes it unsafe for us to raft on the Kicking Horse River. As water levels are completely dependent on Mother Nature, we may not know until the day before, or morning of the trip. This decision would be made entirely based on safety. If we cancel a trip for this reason a full refund will be given.

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

Thrilled to be part of the inaugural heli-rafting group! It was efficient, organized & SO much fun! Thank you Glacier for finding an exciting solution to a difficult dilemma. Was great to get to the lower canyon again. The white water was even better than expected!
