Take a Waltz Down the Kicking Horse with Hydra River Guides

Are you looking for the perfect way to end off a day full of fun and adventure in the Rocky Mountains? Home to wild rapid and stunning scenery, the infamous Kicking Horse River attracts thousands of rafters each season. The Last Waltz is the perfect way to experience the rapids, and departs later in the day to give you a chance to enjoy your time in the area beforehand. Learn more about the Last Waltz and rafting with Hydra below!

Suit Up!

As the final trip of the day, The Last Waltz departs from Hydra’s ultra exclusive River Base, located right on the banks of the Kicking Horse. Don your gear and hit the water right from the base, maximizing your time on the rapids. Our guides will catch you up with the basics of paddling and navigating the raft, then guide you through world-class rapids ranging from class 1-4. Once you’re done splashing up a storm and exploring the famous Shotgun and Portage sections of the river, you and your crew of adventurers will return to the base to shower off in our heated showers, and unwind with a game of volleyball while swapping stories.

Located approximately 75 minutes from Banff, our River Base is the perfect place to wrap up your day, or to prepare for a night out on the town. Whether you’re winding down or hyping up, Hydra River Guides is here to make sure your time on the river is unforgettable!

We take the safety of our rafters seriously, and make sure that everyone, from beginners to season veterans, is prepared to handle the rapids.
