Kicking Horse River

Restless river passing through picturesque valleys offers spectacular scenery and some of the finest white water rafting in the country.

Reviewed By 5cottie - British Columbia, Canada

From White water rafting on the upper reaches to Kayak paddling where is enters the Columbia this river is full of fun (if you're sensible) and adventure. The flow much of the year is pretty fast and it ices over in the winter. DON"T WALK ON IT IN THE WINTER. The thicknes of the ice varies dramatically and if you go through you're not comming out! End EX. If you're there in the spring the ice breakup can be pretty dramtic too at times. Ice from further up the Mountain bottlenecks at Golden and tends to pile up , especially after a hard windter and a fast melt. When it lets go it's a sight to see I'm told! It is a great viewpoint though at any time of the year. Whether from the road bridge or the spectacular covered wooden bridge a few yards downstream. The Riverside walks are pleasant too. Spirit place is a tranquil spot to stop and smell the flowers or take a cold bear at the Riverside Tavern and the water garden adds that visual and aural water delight as you can't see the river for the flood bank, protecting Spirit Place.

Four of us travelled up to Golden from Canmore for a snowmobiling half day tour on March 1st for my boyfriends birthday and it was the coolest thing we’ve ever done! Doris was amazing on the phone and answered all of my many many questions about the activity. AJ led the tour and was really enthusiastic and friendly, we felt very at ease with him leading us and he instantly made us feel less nervous (was our first time snowmobiling for me and my partner). The tour itself was really thrilling and they order you in the group based on how fast you want to go which was great for us because we were able to get lots of speed when we wanted to. They check on you frequently on the tour to make sure you are comfortable and feeling good about it all and the trails are very well kept and signposted. The scenery is stunningly beautiful and overall the tour was definitely worth every penny. Our two friends who came on the tour with us had done snowmobiling at other companies in BC before and said that this tour was way better in every way! If you are looking to have the best day out you should choose this company, I highly recommend it!! Thank you guys so much, we will never forget it! -Sarah
