Make a splash and gear up for the adventure of a lifetime! Located just 75 minutes away from Banff in Soho National Park, the Kicking Horse River is home to some of the wildest rapids you’ll find in North America and is the perfect place to let your love of adventure shine! Grab a paddle and get ready to get wet as you follow our guides down wild waters, navigating class I-IV rapids, sharp turns, and plenty of fun that’s sure to wow the whole crew. Our whitewater rafting trips are suitable for all experience levels and even feature a family-friendly option for those looking to give their little ones the ride they’ll remember for years to come!
Conquer the mountainside with a little help from the “Iron Road” (Via Ferrata in Italian)! Found on Mt. Norquay and Terminator Peak at the Kicking Horse Resort in Golden, our Via Ferrata tours offer four different trips to choose from: The Explorer, the Ridgewalker, the Skyline, and the Summiteer each ranging from 2.5 hrs to 6 hrs in total. Using a specialized harness, daredevils can easily secure themselves to the mountainside cable for safety and stability and follow the set-out course easily, encountering ladders, bridges, and more along the way!
Rev up for an adventure! Take to the trails and zoom over rugged roads with ease on a 4x4 excursion that’s sure to thrill. Based out of Panorama and Golden, BC (approximately 90 minutes from Banff), each of our 3 ATV tours is designed to give you plenty of opportunities to explore the wild, while also learning about the history of the region thanks to our expert guides! You can expect to encounter stunning views, waterfalls, and maybe even a wildlife visitor or two on your ride.
Take to the skies and experience unparalleled hiking on a memorable adventure that gives you a birds-eye view of the wild, as well as a chance to get up close and personal with the rugged landscape. Departing from June to September (weather dependent), our heli-hiking trips transport you through a stunning mountain valley to a high alpine meadow for a fabulous 2.5-3 hr hike guided by our alpine experts. With the ability to customize the difficulty to meet the needs of your group, the whole crew will enjoy trekking over ridgelines, stream crossings, and getting the chance to sightsee like never before!
