EASE INTO IT – THE WHITE WATER DISCOVERY

White Water Discovery is the perfect introductory trip for someone who is new to river rafting, but still wants to experience some of our biggest whitewater.

Our Discovery trip rafts the upper and middle sections of the Kicking Horse River, and it combines some of the best scenery and whitewater this river has to offer.

This trip is great for people new to the sport because it starts with the calmest section and gradually builds into exciting class 3 and class 4 rapids.

You’ll enjoy our riverside barbeque lunch and then move on to the excitement of the middle canyon.  The middle canyon starts with a 1 kilometer stretch of class 4 whitewater and from there it continues through various class 3 and class 4 rapids.

At the end of your trip our bus will shuttle you back to our rafting base.  If, however, you’ve had so much fun that you want to continue on into the lower canyon, just let your guide know.  As long as there are boats carrying on, they will make it happen.   

*The Discovery is NOT offered on Saturdays from July 4 to August 29.  We only offer the Ultimate Adventure or Pure White Water on these days.  

* Price is also subject to a $3.00 Land Use Fee and 5% GST per person

This was my first time white water rafting. After a lot of build up from my friends, my expectations were sky high going in — and Glacier exceeded them by leaps and bounds. I will be recommending Glacier to everyone I know.
