Every summer we host awesome guests from around the globe for a day of white water rafting on the Kicking Horse River. We love seeing everyone have so much fun and return to our base in Golden, B.C. completely stoked on their day.

We often see people return time after time to relive the adventure and share it with their friends and family.

So what is it that makes Glacier so special? And why have our guests ranked Glacier Raft Company as the best rafting company in Golden B.C. on TripAdvisor for over 5 years straight?

Apparently a lot of things! Here are some of our favourite comments from guests themselves.

Both my daughter and I have rafted a few times before our day with you. This was the Best One Yet! We will recommend the full day with the excellent meal and excellent guides. Thanks so much for a fabulous time. P.S. It was fun, fun, fun!

A great adventure that adults and teens can enjoy together. Very professionally run. Exceptional customer service from start to finish. We loved staying in the lodge right on site the night before. So convenient and cozy.

From the time you check in til you float into Golden, the staff couldn't be more awesome!...I was the oldest in our group (57) and if I can do this anyone can too!

We had three generations (ages 7-62) rafting on the weekend and it was awesome! The staff and our guide were excellent. The lunch was perfect. Loved it and would definitely go back again. An amazing way to take in the beautiful scenery. The staff worked hard to make sure everyone was happy, safe and having an amazing time.

Rafting with Glacier Raft Company on the Kicking Horse River

As an experienced adventurer, I was impressed with every aspect of the trip starting with the excellent team, the focus on safety, service and knowledge. We spent the entire day on the river and for the last leg were transported by helicopter to a class 4-5 section. Always felt safe, secure, well fed. I highly recommend staying at their lodge, great rooms, breakfast and then you are right there to start the day. Well done!

Rafting the Kicking Horse River with Glacier Raft Company

We had the most fun and exciting day out with the Glacier Raft Company.. the guide took such good care of us making sure the trip was extra fun and making us all laugh. It really felt like he made our whole group connect together whilst ensuring safety as a priority. I'm so pleased I experienced this. I highly recommend to others doing the whole day trip with the lunch as the day goes so quick. Brilliant day out.

Rafting with Glacier Raft Company on the Kicking Horse River

According to my daughters it was the best trip ever. The guides, the receptionist, the driver, the people who helped prepare the yummy lunch and the photographer - you guys were all great. Never thought rafting is something you can enjoy as a family with young kids...but we were wrong. It was by far the best activity we enjoyed together. We can't wait to plan for our next trip to Golden and plan a rafting day with Glacier Raft Company...

The team of rafting guides were so fun to be around, so safe and caring of people's abilities! They prepare a beautiful lunch for everyone on the side of the river mid rafting and give everyone a cold beer at the end of the day to celebrate an awesome day! Definitely worth going with Glacier Raft Company!

Rafting with Glacier Raft Company on the Kicking Horse River

Glacier Raft Company created the most memorable rafting experiences of my life. I have rafted on four continents and no company has provided the friendly, familial atmosphere that Glacier provided. Their guides, drivers, and all staff were extremely knowledgeable about the area making this reasonably priced adventure the best and most informative adrenaline fuelled day of my life. I would highly recommend this company to all who live to raft.

So there you have it! Our guests love the sense of humour and knowledge of our guides, the delicious BBQ lunch, the endless laughs along the way, and our cheers at the end of the trip to commemorate a great day out with friends.

Our whole team works hard to make sure everyone has the experience of a lifetime with us. That's probably why we have been rated #1 on Trip Advisor for so many years!

We couldn't do it without all of our amazing guests, and we can't wait to greet new and old friends in the coming season.

Thank you and cheers from all of us here at Glacier
