Full description

Whitewater raft through some of British Columbia’s rapids in the Kicking Horse River. Raft through different rapids including, Man Eater, Shotgun, and Roller Coaster. Start the whitewater rafting journey in the calm upper cannon. In calmer waters, go for a swim and admire the views downstream. Make your way downstream to the middle canyon, where the big whitewater rapids are. You’ll raft through different rapids up to level 4 rapids. Walk up a narrow canyon and see a waterfall. Take a drink from the waterfall while relaxing by the stream. Enjoy a BBQ lunch of burgers and sizzling smokies sausages. There will be vegetarian and gluten-free options available.

At the end of your trip, get taken back to the rafting base by bus. There, feel free to use the hot showers and get changed before heading off.
