With so much to see and do in the Canadian Rockies, we know it can be tricky to fit in all the activities you want to do on your holiday - and it's impossible to know what to scratch from the list!

If you don’t have all day but still want to experience the thrill of whitewater rafting, you need to check out our White Water Express trip.

A three hour blast through some of the best whitewater on the Kicking Horse River, the White Water Express is hands down the best half day rafting trip in Golden, B.C.

Running each afternoon during the season at 12:30 p.m., this accelerated trip takes you right to the nonstop whitewater of the middle canyon. Your adrenaline will be pumping from the very beginning as it’s straight into the big class 3 and 4 rapids.

Once you emerge from your 10 km ride, we arrive back at our base at approximately 3:30 p.m. where you have time to change and enjoy a hot shower.

After that you will gather with your fellow rafters at our fire pit to enjoy a refreshing beverage on us to celebrate an awesome afternoon!
