Kicking Horse River Whitewater Rafting

10 Reviews

  • Location: Kicking Horse River, BC
  • Duration: 4 hours (approx.)
  • Tour code: 2914KHC

Whitewater rafting is the ultimate summer outdoor activity and the Kicking Horse River is the best river in the Canadian Rockies! With your transport included, embark in 2 - 2.5 hours of upper canyon rafting on a half day trip from Banff, before heading back to enjoy a delicious BBQ lunch. Please note: This trip is catered to participants 12 years and up.


Start your trip by enjoying a scenic drive from Canmore, Banff or Lake Louise through Yoho National Park. Upon arrival at the put in site, you'll meet your river guides and be provided with all the necessary rafting gear.

Once on the water, this unforgettable journey begins calmly and quietly, allowing rafters to familiarize themselves with the raft, their paddles and their guides' commands. As the Canyon narrows, the rapids of the mighty Kicking Horse begin a whitewater experience that will take each team of rafters paddling through up to class 4+ rapids, finishing 12 miles (20km) downstream!

This tour was amazing!

Reviewed by: Linda.simms, July 2016

Excellent day even though it was raining and cold so we got wet from above as well as from the river. Be prepared to put effort in usually required at the hardest spots of the river. Good safety instructions. BBQ lunch was burger or vegetable burger with salad, coleslaw etc. Absolutely fine for this sort of activity. The bus drive from Banff to venue is over 90 minutes and the bus is a little old. Changing facilities are also very basic, annoyingly some ladies decided to get changed afterwards in the toilets, why do they have to do that!
