What makes the White Water Discovery Trip the best full day rafting trip on the Kicking Horse River?

The White Water Discovery has it all - amazing views, huge whitewater, delicious food, and guaranteed laughs.

It’s an adventure packed day and our guests always come back with a smile. That’s probably why it’s our most popular trip too!

This full day rafting trip (for those 12 years and older) starts by winding through the scenic upper canyon. You’ll have the chance to jump in and swim on those hot summer days (the cooler ones too if you're feeling brave) and hike to a secret waterfall hidden in the canyon.

After that it’s on to the lunch spot where a delicious riverside BBQ awaits you.

How does steak, chicken, fish, a burger or veggie burger sound? Add to that a variety of salads, veggies and dip, fresh fruit, chips and dip and cookies, and it's a big, hearty meal.

Once you’ve filled up on lunch it’s on to the big whitewater of the middle canyon. Hang on as the rapids crash into the raft and you enjoy some glacial face shots!

Did we mention that no experience is required? Your guide will tell you exactly what to do throughout the trip - when to paddle, and when to hang on.

When you finally get a break from the rapids, you’ll head to shore and then back to our base. You’ll have time to change and take advantage of our hot showers before meeting everyone around our fire pit for a complimentary beverage and cheers to the day.

We hope you remembered to smile for the camera (but if you didn't, that's okay, it makes for a funnier photo!). We have a professional photographer taking photos throughout the day, and all of our guides wear GoPro cameras to capture the action.

You will have a chance to view the photos and videos from your trip back at our base at the end of the day. You can purchase everything on a USB stick, if you so desire, so you can share the memories from your awesome day on the river.
