No Two Rides Are The Same!
Glacier-fed rivers are exciting for several reasons, from cold waters to exhilarating rapids and more! One of the best parts of these rivers is that their water levels fluctuate more than other bodies of water. That means that depending on the temperature in the area, seasonal precipitation, runoff and other factors; the Kicking Horse River may be faster flowing, higher, or more gentle. Since the Kicking Horse can drastically change over the season, each ride you take down the river will be a unique experience.

When planning your rafting experience, it's essential to be prepared for all kinds of weather. At Hydra River Guides, we provide our adventurers with wet suits, life jackets, booties, and paddle jackets.
