New To Canada? Here’s Your Next Adventure!

Being new to a country brings many new experiences. Your family may be searching for your next classic Canadian adventure, or you and a friend or two want to have the full Canadian experience. Nestled in the middle of the famous Canadian Rockies that flow through British Columbia and Alberta, Kicking Horse River is a beautiful location to experience your next adventure. Our perfect rider is someone not scared to get wet and has a great attitude. If that's you, keep reading about how you can sign on with Hydra River Guides for your white water rafting adventure in Canada.

White Water Rafting in Golden, BC

Located close to Banff, AB, Hydra's white water rafting is unlike any other white water rafting adventure. As it is located in the Rockies, you'll have the opportunity to spot wildlife you can't see anywhere else! And with the beautiful mountains on either side of you, there is endless scenery to take in. We have adventures for everyone ages 8 and up who are looking for a thrill.

The Family Whitewater is best for families with kids between the ages of 8 and 11 who weigh more than 50 lbs. Together, we will embark on a journey over rapids in classes 1 to 3, ranging from calm water to mild rapids. You might get wet, so wear a swimsuit!

The Kicking Horse Classic is our most popular white water rafting adventure. This two-hour journey will bring us over class 1 to class 4 rapids, where we will work together as a team to navigate the water. Perfect for families with kids over 12 who weigh more than 90 lbs or for beginners who are ready for a hit of adrenaline.

The Last Waltz is for people looking to do something fun later in the day or to tire out the kids before night comes. Like the Kicking Horse Classic, this route is excellent for beginners and kids over 12 years old and 90 lbs. We will journey down the best rapids, so be prepared to get soaked!

Get to Know Canada Better

There's much to do in Banff, AB after you finish up your white water rafting with Hydra. Our team has put together packages that include a white water rafting trip along with other extremely popular Canadian things to do. 

The unspoiled view of the Canadian Rockies accompanies you the whole way while you ride horses around historic areas of Banff in our Horsing Around package. You'll get access to a rafting trip as well as horseback riding when you book this package deal. Choose to do both of these activities in one day or separate them across your trip to Banff. 

Do it all with Hydra; ride the Banff Gondola, raft the Kicking Horse River, and see all the magnificent sights that Canada has to offer. From sky to river, you'll experience the best that Banff has to offer. 

Check out our other packages (including ATVs, canoeing, and the Golden Sky Bridge). When you're ready for your next adventure, contact our friendly staff to book your spot before they're filled for 2024. We'd love to make sure you get to experience the best of Canada.
