Overview
Raft your way down one of Canada’s best white water destinations, the Kicking Horse River, on a full-day rafting tour catering to all levels of experience. Experience the beautiful surroundings of Yoho National Park as you brave a selection of Class 3 and Class 4 rapids, the perfect adventure from Banff, Lake Louise or Calgary. This Kicking Horse River rafting excursion provides all necessary rafting equipment and a BBQ lunch.
What to Expect
This white water adventure is the perfect opportunity to get your feet wet at Kicking Horse River, one of the North America’s top rafting spots. Whether you’re new to rafting or an experienced pro, this tour will provide a taste of the amazing scenery and adrenaline-fueled white water of these Canadian rapids.

After a safety briefing and suiting up with the necessary gear at the rafting office in Golden, your rafting day begins in one of the calmer sections on the Kicking Horse, rolling along river’s glacial waters, where you’ll learn to coordinate paddling with other raft passengers. Take a break for a BBQ lunch of steak, chicken, grilled salmon or veggie burgers, plus vegetable platter, potato wedges, salad, cookies and hot or cold drinks. Then kick off your afternoon with a ride on the thrilling Class 3 and Class 4 rapids of the Middle Canyon of Kicking Horse. 13.7 miles (22 km) of whitewater lay ahead in the Upper and Middle Canyons. Take on the challenge!

This trip returns to the Alpine Rafting Office approximately 5.5 hours later. As an added bonus, digital  photos from your day of rafting will be available to at no charge!
