Meet the Infamous Kicking Horse
Home to some of the best rapids North America has to offer, the Kicking Horse has is a favourite for adventure seekers and rafters. Located in Golden, British Columbia, just 75 minutes from Banff, Alberta, the river gets its name from a particularly feisty horse carrying Sir James Hector during the 1958 Palliser Expedition. Hydra’s ultra exclusive River Base is situated just 25km east of Golden, making us the closest rafting operator to Banff. With Class I-IV rapids to explore, you’re sure to have an incredible time taking in the wonder that this natural playground has to offer.
