Canada Rafting Trips

Kicking Horse River rafting options typically involve whitewater. BIG whitewater! However, not everyone may be looking for big wave action. Some guests wish to enjoy the peacefulness of the river and slowly breathe in the Rocky Mountain magic … without getting totally soaked! Learn more about our new evening float option. ...

Welcome back to the river!  The 2021 rafting season kicked off in grand style last month. The Wild Water crew was so happy to be back on the river and moving about the RiverBase.  Although the season started later than usual, we now are up and running and having loads of fun with our guests.    2021 Heat Dome     After only four weeks into the season, the biggest challenge by far has been water levels. The heat dome of 2021 melted alpine snow in record quantities, feeding the river till it almost burst its banks. Locals in the area say they’d never seen the rivers so high. Some trips did require us to...

River rafting in British Columbia has a long and well-established history.  Companies offering both multi-day wilderness expeditions and action-packed day trips have run guests down a multitude of BC rivers for close to 50 years.  The first commercial rafting outfit in British Columbia, in fact, Canada, was Canadian River Expeditions, founded in 1972 by Big John Mikes.  CRE specialized (and continues to specialize) in multi-day wilderness rafting expeditions in remote pockets of the province and territories.    The first-ever day-tripping company was none other than Kumsheen in 1973, setting up shop on the banks of the Thompson River.  This rafting destination remains a...

Whitewater rafting in British Columbia is beyond compare. Those tiny water droplets tumbling down steep-sided mountains, turning into swirling, frothy frenzies entice adventurers of all ages. Whitewater enthusiasts planning a regional ‘staycation’ road trip (for when regional explorations are once again welcome) seek to hop aboard a raft and plow through some of the biggest and wildest waves in the province. Whether on the coast, the interior, or amongst the Rocky Mountains, there is no shortage of BC whitewater rafting rivers from which to choose.   Top 5 Whitewater Rivers in BC (all with Class IV waves and rapids):  1 – Thompson River  As...

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...

Rafting Calgary style infers a certain level of adventure. Just think of the word ‘stampede’ and images of cowboys (and cowgirls) riding atop bucking broncos come quickly to mind. White water rafting conjures a very similar image: rafts and rafters bucking and bouncing downstream while holding on tight. For the best stampede, Calgary is where it’s at. When it comes to the best white water rafting near Calgary, look no further than the world-famous Kicking Horse River....

Rafting and camping are perfectly suited to each other.  After a great trip on the river, nothing is finer than closing out the day in a quiet setting with a campfire and unlimited laughter. Golden, BC campgrounds are varied and filled with options (just like our river rafting roster!).  Pitch your tent next to a river, next to a lake, or on a plateau.  Each campground is unique and offers its own personality. When planning your next rafting experience with Wild Water Adventures, consider the following campgrounds. The Ranch, RV Park & Campground Golden, BC Municipal Campground Whispering Spruce Campground...

Mighty rivers, such as the St. Lawrence, Mackenzie and Fraser, define our country’s regions and shape a character that is uniquely Canadian. It is lifeblood, carrying and delivering nutrients, nourishment and life throughout the heart of any habitat while also providing some of the best rafting in Canada. Rivers, like people, have character and personality; traits that are particular, or peculiar. One river may be gentle...

Motherhood is a special designation. Much more than a role or mere label, it is an undertaking that requires vigilance, care, and unwavering fortitude. So, too, could the term ‘river guide’ be defined. It takes a special type of personality and character to guide a raft downstream. A ‘lady rafter’, in my eyes, is that much more special; that much more unique than being known as just a river guide. On this Mother’s Day, we here at Wild Water Adventures would like to pay tribute to both the remarkable women who are mothers and to the powerful and magnificent ladies...
