Navigate the swirling class III and IV rapids of the Kicking Horse River on this adventurous rafting tour in Canada.  Hop aboard your raft with your guide and paddle hard along the Kicking Horse River’s middle canyon. Feel the spray in your face as you explore the 7-mile (12-kilometer) stretch of water, and test your skills against the powerful current. With your guide at the helm, enjoy adrenaline-fueled adventure and admire sweeping views over the rugged valley scenery.
What to Expect
This rafting excursion in the afternoon offers just the right amount of adventure for those who don’t need the full-day experience of the Kicking Horse Classic.
Depart from the Alpine Rafting Office at 12:15pm. Please arrive 30 minutes prior to the trip departure time. During the summer season, this trip also departs on Saturdays at 11:15am.
After a safety briefing, make your way to the water. Then take on 7 miles (12 km) of the Middle Canyon on the Kicking Horse, where you’ll experience Class 3 and Class 4 rapids. Whether you’re new to rafting or an experienced pro, this tour provides a taste of the amazing scenery and adrenaline-fueled white water of these Canadian rapids.
You'll return to the Alpine Rafting Office approximately 3 hours later. As an added bonus, digital  photos from your day of rafting will be available to at no charge!
All equipment is provided to get you all setup for a day out on the water - including a wetsuit, neoprene boots, goretex spray jacket, life jacket and helmet. Neoprene gloves are also available onboard for your comfort. However, you may want to bring a fleece or wool sweater to wear as an extra layer of warmth on top of the wetsuit but underneath the spray jacket.

Thanks for your review Mike! Although the fires are not what we like to see, it's pretty neat watching the fire fighting crew in action down at the river! We're glad you enjoyed your trip.
