Starting from our private river base, enjoy a serene family float down the Kicking Horse River. Marvel at the scenery, lookout for wildlife and enjoy some commentary from our friendly guides. Then, it’s onto some whitewater! Get a taste of the rapids, enjoy the splashes from class 1-3 waves and maybe even share in a rival raft water fight. After your trip, once you're back in dry clothes, check out your group rafting shot in our lodge and maybe pick up a souvenir of your day.

If you’re looking for the best family fun on the river, this is it!
