The Hydra River guides made our whitewater rafting trip on the Kicking Horse River one we will never forget! The team were very professional, fun, and put an emphasis on safety. Our guide, Dave, was fantastic and went out of his way to make everyone feel comfortable. I would recommend anyone to tour with them!

Golden itself seems pretty quiet which was great after spending days in Banff and Lake Louise which is crazy with tourists. This was a great place to stop and take in whats around you

The flow of this river was amazingly fast (end May) and a highlight of our brief visit to Golden. Take a walk across the wooden covered bridge too.

I called shortly before departure time and we were not really prepared. Recommended are a bathing suit and towel. Wetsuit, booties, life jackets are supplied. The weather was extremely hot that day and the company offered water and snacks along the way. My daughter is blind and of course my concern was a good guide. We lucked out with Kyle ( Winnipeg ) who was respectful, conscientious( so were the rest of the staff ) and gave great commands during the trip. That day Kicking Horse river was more of a bronco. I would recommend this trip. Surely I will go again.

The decoration around the river is simply magnificent. The debit of the water is fast. The place inhales the tranquillity and is not too much invaded by troops of tourists.

If you are heading to Canada you have to check out British Columbia. This place rocks. Go to Golden (2.5 hrs west of Calgary) and do the white water rafting make sure you get a company that does the "lower canyon" I went with Glacier Raft and it was a ton of fun. You even get a free Glacier beer after the trip.

As Americans we were interested to find the source of the "Mighty Columbia" and follow it north to its confluence with the Kicking Horse River.
