Excellent rafting experience
Kisoo_L, Aug 2023
The rafting guide, Ben, was very professional and witty to help my family enjoy the rafting. The rafting itself suited well the level of my family including one minor.

Cool rapid rides a true Canadian high of our trip

Our guide Ben was super helpful and informative although he scared the crap out of us during the safety briefing! Rapids we were told we’re really low for the the time of year- pretty sure at least one of us would have fallen out if it had been high.

Hi Tracy, Thanks so much for your review. That safety briefing is definitely thorough and it is totally normal to feel nervous before the trip. Glad you had an awesome time with Ben ... and yes in higher water comes more adventure, but also more risk. However our guides are professionals and highly trained to provide safe, fun trips in all conditions. Thanks again for joining us!
Excellent adventure for all!

Hey there! Happy to hear you not only enjoyed the class 3/4 rapids that the Kicking Horse River has to offer, but also that our BBQ masters (guides) did a great job on and off the water. Keeping you safe, having fun and well fed!
