The Discovery starts with the calm upper canyon and works up to the big whitewater in the middle canyon. It’s an awesome full day on the Kicking Horse and it’s the most popular trip we offer.

Your adrenaline is going and your smile is huge – and you’re feeling good because you just feasted on our riverside BBQ lunch. Think juicy burgers and sizzling smokies – with options for our veggie and GF friends too.

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

The helicopter accesses the lower canyon which is famous for its 4 km stretch of continuous class 4 whitewater. It has huge vertical rock walls and the only way to get there is by helicopter. This keeps getting better and better, doesn’t it.

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!
