This was an overall good experience. It was a great trip, although going before September would allow for a more robust river. This river has some good level 3/4 rapids. My only request would be better rowing instructions for the group. We weren't given any tips on how to row as a team and it wasn't as fun as other rafting trips, as a result. Overall, good investment. I would just suggest the quick practicing of coordinated rowing technique

We booked our whitewater rafting through Banff Adventures. It was an amazing experience from start to finish. The booking process was simple and the staff at Banff Adventures were extremely kind. Our rafting trip was lead by Josh who was an unreal guide. He kept us informed and safe while also making the trip exciting. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone visiting.

About This Deal



The Kicking Horse Classic is our premier trip, including all of the biggest & best rapids on the river. Starting at our private river base, this unforgettable journey begins calmly, allowing rafters to familiarize themselves with the raft, paddles and guide’s commands. Get to know your fellow rafters and find out fun facts about the river as you take in the views of the serene upper section. Then, it’s onto the mighty rapids the Kicking Horse is famous for. As the canyon narrows, the waves build, drenching rafters in continuous rapids such as Shot Gun, Man Eater and Roller Coaster. It’s a popular whitewater journey that combines a mix of class 1-4 rapids, finishing 20 km downstream.
