Thanks Paul! That refreshing water we are so lucky to raft on is only 12 hours old. The day before it was glacial ice! Thanks for coming rafting with us! More

The whole experience was fabulous! Our guide, Darren, was excellent and fun to be around. We had such a good time, we almost extended our trip to include the helicopter ride down to the last set of rapids. We had time constraints so opted not to do the last portion but would definitely do it if we are ever in... More

The best white water rafting experience my daughter and I have ever had! Recommend the lower section of the river - only accessible by helicopter which is an awesome ride in itself. Glacier is the only one doing that section and well worth it. Class 4 and class 3 rapids. All of the staff are extremely friendly and make the... More

We did the heli-rafting trip last Wednesday and it was the best rafting experience I've had! The helicopter ride through the canyon was beautiful and the rapids on the lower section were so much fun! I think what really set Glacier Raft Company apart from the others is how friendly and personal all the staff was. The day ended with... More

We just did the first 2 sections and this was still a great trip! I can't wait to come back and do the 3rd and wildest. Great views, water, and guides. This is a professional operation and it shows. Jairo and Gord are both great guides!
