White water rafting is offered by several local companies on the Kicking Horse River, including our partners Glacier Raft Company. The twenty kilometre trip offers rapids from class II to class IV.
In the upper and middle canyons you’ll start out slowly, then the intensity picks up until you’re paddling through class III to IV rapids.
For even more excitement, you can raft the lower canyon with intense class IV rapids and deep canyon walls – the longest succession of class IV rapids in Western Canada. A must for anyone seeking the most action packed, adrenalin filled day of white water rafting in the Rockies.
For families and those people wanting to travel at a more sedate pace, rafting trips are available on the upper Kicking Horse in Golden or a short drive away on Toby Creek in Invermere where you will get just a taste of whitewater and enjoy the breathtaking scenery.
