Description

Raft the big rapids with this guided, double-whitewater adventure on the Kicking Horse River. Starting with calmer rapids on the gentle upper canyon. Then it's on to the thrill of the middle canyon with the Class IV rapids of Portage and Shotgun. Change spots in the boat as the guide takes a different line down the rapids, so the second time around is just as fun as the first. The tour includes all your equipment: wetsuit, booties, life jacket, spray jacket, helmet, paddle & guide! BBQ lunch is included. Please note: This tour only runs in May & June. 

Upon arriving at the river base at 12.30pm, check in and enjoy a delicious bbq lunch of a beef/veggie burger, potato salad, pasta salad, veggies, chocolate brownies, and lemonade. After lunch, the guides will provide a safety briefing before handing out all the equipment. All groups will be assigned to their guides for some fun photos, then get ready to hit the water — it's time to raft.

Become familiar with the guide's commands as they raft the upper section of Kicking Horse. Then it's on to the thrill of the middle canyon with the Class IV rapids of Portage and Shotgun. This is the most popular stretch of whitewater on the river, thus enjoy the opportunity twice. 

All the necessary gear — including wetsuits, booties, lifejacket, spray jacket, helmet and paddle — are included.

At the end of the trip, there will be a bus ride back to the river base to change clothes, view the photos, and head home after an awesome day of whitewater rafting. Change rooms, washrooms, warm showers, picnic tables, and volleyball courts are all available at the private base.  

Please note: there is no transportation available from Banff/Lake Louise for this trip. All guests must meet at the river base before 12.30pm.
