One of our most popular summertime activities is white water rafting, which we’re happy to offer through our sister company, Hydra River Guides.

If you’ve been eyeing a whitewater rafting trip but are still on the fence, below are 5 reasons whitewater rafting is an epic adventure!

1. Heart Pumping Excitement

If you want to kick things off with a bang and get your pulse racing, whitewater rafting is the perfect fit! Ideal for adventurous souls of all experience levels, our rafting trips treat you to an incredible day on the Kicking Horse River, located just 90 minutes away from Banff in Golden, BC. Grab your paddle, suit up and prepare to get wet and wild, because the river is teeming with life and ready to help you make a splash!

2. Team Building

Looking to bring the crew together and build camaraderie? Whether you’ve got your closest friends joining you on the water, or are bringing the kids along to experience the wild, paddling together is a fantastic way to get closer and work on your team skills, all while having the time of your life.

3. See the Rockies Like Never Before

There’s nothing quite like taking in soaring peaks while charging down rushing rapids and fighting to conquer the river. Our guides will introduce you to the Kicking Horse, its history, and help learn more about the area as a whole.

4. Fantastic Exercise

Tired of sitting around on vacation and never really doing anything? While there’s nothing wrong with resting and relaxing, sometimes you need to kick things up a notch to satisfy your thirst to stay active. Rafting is a great way to get your daily exercise in, while also having a ton of fun.

5. Life-Long Memories

The best part of rafting is that your adventure doesn’t stop when you leave the water. The thrills you’ve experienced will live on in the stories you’ll be swapping for years to come and the memories you’ll bring home!
