To be sure of a spot on a raft, we made the reservation for this rafting experience 3 months ahead. The staff of Alpine Rafting was super friendly. They provide you with a sleeveless neoprene suit, neoprene boots, a fleece, a raincoat and a helmet. They drive you in an old schoolbus for miles to the start of the rafting... More

I have rafted with Alpine 4 times in the past couple of years, and it is always a fantastic time! Most of the trips, I have been with beginners, and they put everyone through a very thorough safety demonstration while en route to our launch origin. I have had 3 different guides on my trips (an awesome Australian, Ben; a... More

My fiance and I took the Kicking Horse Classic river rafting tour with Alpine. The day started with getting signed in and our equipment from the guides at the main building. The equipment was in good condition, but definitely take their advice of wearing your bathing suit underneath and bringing a fleece! We went in August and that water is... More

We had an unforgettable day river rafting with Alpine Rafting. Ico was our guide. He was very knowledgeable and fun to be with. We spent the whole day smiling and laughing! The scenery was beautiful! The shore lunch was delicious! We were so glad we picked Alpine Rafting for our day on Kicking Horse River!

Went with friends to Rafting on the kicking horse river in Golden,BC. Whole rafting experience is unforgettable with alpine Rafting. Beautiful locations along the river pathway. The instructor is knowledgeable and experienced. He gave us proper instructions and helped me when I accidentally fell in the river. Even people who cannot swim can go Rafting with all the help we...

Awesome trip for a big group (or a small one too). We had 12 in our group and split up 6 and 6 and had a couple of strangers (not for long) join our raft. We did the full trip so we had lunch, which was freshly grilled at their mini campground and was absolutely delicious. Jake was our guide... More

Halfway down we stopped for a great lunch, better then i had expected! After lunch we hit the more wild part of the river and... More

We did the lot... and thank goodness did the last roughest bit, thrilling. Great fun had by myself and 2 teenage kids with big praise to our guide and the staff. The upper section is suitable for anyone, the middle bit starts getting interesting and the lower section is fabulous! Did it in summer 2015.

Thanks for taking the time to write the review, Stephen! We are happy to hear you and the kids had a great time. You were lucky enough to experience the lower when we still had access to it. We are keeping our fingers crossed for next season! More
