Peter and Ben at Alpine made our experience awesome. We'd definitely go back, except we'd book a trip on some more gnarly rapids in next time, and probably go when it's a little bit warmer (mid May was a tad chilly on the Kicking Horse, but still awesome, all the same). Don't miss out on a great experience wth fun,... More

I have rafted this river over 12 times. It is always the best with Alpine. Jim and the whole gang made it and amazing day. Actual rafts and gear are top notch, guide do a good job. Lunch is great.

We came here right at the end of their season, so water was not as high as other times in the year, but we were lucky though we were told that the water levels were still quite good, and had a couple good class III rapids. We booked more than 6 months in advance so we were able to get... More

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!
