3. Kicking Horse River: 5-Hour Whitewater Rafting Trip with BBQ

Set off on the famous Kicking Horse River for a genuine Rocky Mountain whitewater rafting experience. The 5-hour trip (2.5-hours on the river) combines all the best the river has to offer: bouncy and splashy waves, calm and scenic float sections, and big whitewater rapids.  Check in at the local partner's base, conveniently located on TransCanada Highway #1, and change into your top-of-the-line gear, which is provided.

For approximately 1-hour, enjoy splashing through the waves as you warm up for the more intense sections downstream.

After rafting, transfer back to the base to enjoy the warmth of the DayLodge and heated change rooms. Once back in warm, dry clothes, enjoy a delicious gourmet BBQ lunch.

What people are saying about Golden

The Golden Skybridge was pretty incredible. You cross over not 1 but 2 suspension bridges. Scary for some of the kids but by time they crossed the second one they found it really fun. There's a beautiful playground for kids. Try the food there because it's amazing. The place isn't finished. They are adding a swing and a zipline over the canyon. There is also a obstacle course mid journey that the kids can stop and do for 20$.

Family trip to the Skybridge, it was a fun day and we didn’t even try the obstacle course or zip line (which looks awesome so we plan to next time)! It’s worth going for even just the two Skybridges. Amazing views and very exciting!

Employees were organized and friendly. The guide we had was Andrew and he made the trip! Over all we had an amazing adventure and will recommend to others!! Thank you!

It was awesome. The wild water crew throw on a great river tour, with lots of laughs and good stories. I would recommend it to anyone passing through Golden

Awesome! Our guide (Simon) was outstanding! The highlight of our vacation, and we can't wait to do it again.
