FULL DAY WHITE WATER RAFTING IN GOLDEN BC

Hey, that’s you! You’re floating down the river, surrounded by mountains. You decide to hop in and go for a swim, and admire the views as you’re bobbing downstream. You're enjoying a full day of Kicking Horse white water rafting.

You try your hand at the ‘river rodeo’ and get drenched by rapid after crashing rapid. With names like Man Eater, Shotgun and Roller Coaster you know they’re going to be good!

You'll get the chance to take a short walk up a narrow canyon to a beautiful cascading waterfall. Known as the Fountain of Youth, you can take a drink and test it out for yourself.

This is our White Water Discovery trip - a full day of Kicking Horse River white water rafting. Does it sound like somewhere you’d like to be?

The Discovery starts with the calm upper canyon and works up to the big whitewater in the middle canyon. The upper canyon is mostly class 1 and 2 rapids, and the middle canyon will get you soaked as you raft through lots of big class 3 and 4 whitewater (class 4 is the highest we can commercially raft in Canada). It’s a full day of white water rafting 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, crispy chicken burgers and sizzling smokies – with options for our veggie and GF friends too.

People tend to tell us it's a, ‘Wow, I’m really happy I did that’ kind of experience.

a few more details for kicking horse river white water rafting

* All guests 19 years and older must read and agree to a Release of Liability, Waiver of Claims and Assumption of Risks and Indemnity Agreement prior to their rafting trip. Guests under 19 must be signed by a guardian. You can VIEW THE WAIVER HERE.

* No experience is required. Our guides will let you know exactly what to do!

* If you’re loving your day and want to add on the lower canyon, let your guide know and they’ll make it happen. This is for rafters 16 and older, and provided we still have seats available. We'll charge the difference in price to the credit card we have on file.

*We hold the right to cancel a trip if water levels fluctuate to a level that makes it unsafe for us to raft. Water levels are completely dependent on Mother Nature, so we may not know until the day before, or morning of the trip. Safety is the only consideration when making this decision. If we cancel a trip for this reason you will receive a full refund.

* There's a $5.50 Land Use Fee and 5% GST applied to all trips.

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.
