Stunning Location and Views

The Kicking Horse River in Yoho National Park is a stunning river with incredible views of nature and wildlife. There's even a section of the river nicknamed the "goat" rapids. It's named this because paddlers can often catch a glimpse of the many mountain goats that scale the canyon's cliffs next to the river. As North America's premiere destination for plenty of fun in the sun, the Kicking Horse River is perfect for anyone looking to try their luck on class I to IV rapids. Some of the best sections of the Kicking Horse are the portage and shotgun sections. These were named after a 1970s landslide that allowed paddlers to run the rapids rather than travel around them. Those rapids are the largest you can experience on the 22 km whitewater river ride. The Hyrda River Guides River Base is where your adventure begins and ends. Located a quick drive from Banff, Lake Louise and Golden, your latest adventure is just around the corner!
