Enjoy a day of thrills and heart-pumping action on a Kicking Horse River whitewater rafting tour. The Kicking Horse River runs through the Yoho National Park in the picturesque Canadian Rockies, and in addition to its natural rafting conditions, it also contains man-made "spiral tunnels" to enhance your whitewater rafting experience. While on the river, keep your eye out for wildlife including mountain goats, elk, wolverines, bald eagles and more! All three tour options are well-suited for all experience and fitness levels; you must be a minimum height of 4'11" (149.8 cm) and weight of 90 lbs (41 kg).

Full Day Rafting Trip:
Your day begins on the calmer sections of the Kicking Horse River in Yoho National Park. Spend the morning rolling along glacial waters and learning to work as a team. Following your riverside BBQ lunch (see lunch menu in the Itinerary section below), your afternoon is spent tackling the Class 3 and Class 4 rapids of the Middle Canyon.

Half Day Rafting Trip:
If you want to experience whitewater rafting but lack the time for a full-day adventure, the half day whitewater rafting tour is the answer, providing just the right amount of fun! Enjoy 7 miles (12 km) of rafting on the Middle Canyon of the Kicking Horse River with Class 3 and Class 4 rapids. This trip is ideal if you are driving in from Banff, Lake Louise, Revelstoke or Radium and don't want to rise early.
