We want you to have the most fun possible, but we will never jeopardize safety for excitement. From the training and experience required of our guides, to the decisions we make regarding river cutoff levels and minimum ages, safety will always come first at Glacier.

WE'RE RANKED THE #1 ACTIVITY IN GOLDEN ON TRIP ADVISOR
We are honoured to hold this title. We know that people can often say what they want about the service they provide, but this distinction is based entirely on reviews written by our past guests.
We are very proud of what we offer, and it’s always amazing for us to hear about the positive experiences people have had with us (over 700 Trip Advisor reviews!).
If you’re feeling undecided, we encourage you to read some of the reviews from people who were previously in your position. Visit our Trip Advisor page.
PROVIDING THE BEST GUEST EXPERIENCE IS WHAT WE STRIVE FOR EVERYDAY
We love what we do! We couldn't be in a more amazing place or rafting on a better river, and we want to share it all with you. We want you to love it here as much as we do and to show you how happy we are to have you join us.
As a small, family run business we still notice the little things, so from your first encounter to our famous ‘Glacier Cheers’ at the end, we will greet you with a smile and strive to provide you with an experience that is engaging, memorable and really darn entertaining.
IT'S ALL ABOUT THE EXTRAS
We're always trying to add more to our day to provide you with the best experience possible.
We're the only company in Golden who has hot showers at our base, and neoprene jackets and socks for on the river - extra layers are the key to keeping you comfortable in a glacial fed river. We have a professional photographer capturing you throughout the day and guides who shoot HD video of every trip.
We also finish each day with you - and a complimentary beverage - around our campfire. There's never a rush for you to leave, and that's exclusive to Glacier.
OUR CREW RETURNS YEAR AFTER YEAR
While this may not seem like a big deal, having the same core crew year after year means we have a very high standard of experience, knowledge, expertise and passion.
When people love what they do it positively impacts those around them, and given the amount of time our team has spent at Glacier, and in Golden, they’re no longer just ‘staff’. They are teachers and storytellers, instructors and mentors, trip planners, environmental advocates, friends and recreationists. They have a lot to share with you!
To meet our team, have a look at our Our Crew page.
WE HAVE A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER
We are the only company who has a professional, onsite photographer - no bus drivers taking photos for us. Our photographer will be snapping photos throughout the day, and at some of the best white water sections on the Kicking Horse River.
We're also the only company on the Kicking Horse to film HD video of every rafting trip. Our guides are equipped with GoPro cameras and they shoot video from multiple vantage points.
We'll capture the highlights from your day so you don't have to worry about it!
