As with all Wild Water Adventure trips, guests meet at our RiverBase Daylodge; all our Golden, BC rafting trips depart from here. It’s easy to find us with the downloadable self-drive map of the Banff area, and we have loads of secure parking on site for vehicles of all shapes and sizes.
At Wild Water, we place a strong emphasis on safety and guest satisfaction. Our team of river rafting professionals, or ‘guides’, will size everyone up for Canada rafting equipment, (all clean, dry, sterilized … and FREE!). Guests comfortably change into provided gear in heated changing rooms before being shuttled to the river. An easy-to-understand safety briefing will be delivered covering proper seating and paddling techniques.
Once on the river, guests experience 6 named rapids during the 1½ hour whitewater adventure (the entire trip, from ‘greetings to goodbyes’, takes about 3 ½ hours.) The trip can be best compared to a sandwich: Fun and splashy Class II and Class III waves and rapids on either end with a stunningly scenic float section in the middle!
Back at the RiverBase, in warm, dry land clothes once again, guests refuel with a selection of hot and cold beverages on our spacious deck overlooking the Kicking Horse Valley. This is the time to share more laughs with the crew and fellow rafters, check out the trip photographs, and, maybe, start planning your next Kicking Horse rafting adventure (different water levels do make for an entirely different experience!).
Daily departures at 8:45 AM June 5-September 4.
Select afternoon departures July 3 – September 4 (Sundays and Thursdays at 1:45 PM).

Fuel up for your afternoon Rocky Mountain adventures! Guests joining us for morning Gentle departures (8:45 AM) can upgrade to enjoy a delicious post-trip gourmet BBQ lunch at the RiverBase. The cost per person is $22 + 5% GST.
The delicious menu consists of your choice of 3 BBQ items: Salmon fillet, Mediterranean-marinated chicken breast, or premium quality plant-based burger.
