My husband has been white water rafting but it was my first time. I was quite nervous but Vern took great care of us and the others on the raft. He gave very thorough instructions prior to starting the trip as well as while in the rapids. Mitch and another young man took out a

Smaller company offering a great experience with entertaining and safety conscious guides. My 14yo son and I floated down some rapids (out of the raft!), paddled through bigger ones and he even held on with his feet hanging over the bow as we hit a nice face slapping wave! We

Hi Nicole, thanks for the review! We're glad to hear you enjoyed camping at and rafting the Kicking Horse River with the KRR team! As a smaller business, we like to think we offer more personal trips... where you can get to meet each of the guides on a name basis, as they can do. Also props to you and your son for getting in the water during the swim/float section.. not everyone is that brave :D
