To All Our 2020 River Rafting Guests,
Thank you for joining Wild Water Adventures on the Kicking Horse River this summer. Based on trip feedback from guests, 2020 was a wildly successful season and we appreciate everyone choosing to share their whitewater adventure with us.
The summer of 2020 was less than typical and presented unique challenges. We do have to say, however, that all our guests rose to the occasion and made it incredibly easy to comply with provincial health regulations. We greatly appreciate how everyone adhered to our protocols while still maintaining both their sense of adventure and sense of humour.
Winter Adventure Ideas
Even with the rafting season wrapped up, there are plenty of opportunities to be adventurous in the great outdoors. Our sister company, Yamnuska Mountain Adventures, based in Canmore, Alberta, offers a wide range of cold-weather activities, such as ice-climbing, backcountry skiing, and avalanche safety courses and trips. As with rafting, no previous experience is required for most activities and ages 10 and older are welcome. This is a fantastic opportunity for families and friends to take their adventurous spirit to new levels!

- For those who enjoyed the Gentle Introduction To Whitewater, perhaps try some more invigorating waves and rapids (see above!)
- For a different rafting perspective, join us at different times of the season, as water levels rise and fall; the waves are still a lot of fun on early- and late-season departures
