Experience You Can trust
It’s no secret that there are plenty of rafting companies that you can choose from in the Banff and Golden area, but few offer the experience and care that you can expect with Hydra. Our passion is the great outdoors, and we know firsthand just how important safety is when it comes to making every trip a good time. That’s why you can count on our guides to go the extra mile to make sure everyone on board knows what to do and is as comfortable as possible throughout the entire adventure.

The Ultimate Convenience
Another major aspect that sets Hydra apart from our competitors is our exclusive river base, nestled right on the banks of the Kicking Horse.
