The most rapids you’ll find on one trip in the Canadian Rockies.
With twice the whitewater of our popular “Whitewater Exciter” trip, you and your friends will be in awe at the continuous, thundering and thrilling whitewater that you’ll experience on this “Maximum HorsePower” river trip.
You’ll start by meeting your guide and gearing up for your 24 spine tingling rafting kilometres ahead. At the beginning you will experience all the fun, enjoyment and excitement of our Whitewater Exciter trip, with 14 rapids ranging from class II up to class IV+ and plenty of great rafting action!
Enjoy the Kicking Horse River on your exclusively private raft!
For those wishing to have only their own family or friends on board,
our Build Your Own Boatload special (or, BYOB) is perfect.
Feel more at ease on the river with your own guide and raft, while still being part of a larger flotilla. All it takes is 4 to 8 guests to have your own boat on a regularly-scheduled Maximum Horsepower departure.

Your trip begins at our RiverBase daylodge, where you’ll be greeted by your cheerful, professional guides upon your arrival. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff will help prepare you for white water rafting in Golden, BC.
At Wild Water, we place a strong emphasis on safety and customer satisfaction. Prior to departing on the river with expert guides, our customers can enjoy heated changing rooms as they suit up in our clean and dry gear! Afterwards, a short shuttle down to the river gets us to where your raft awaits. A good, thorough briefing and then we’re off. The first portion of this trip is essentially our Whitewater Exciter trip, with 14 rapids ranging from class II to class IV and plenty of great rafting action! You’ll cover approx. 12kms. (8 mi.) of the river on this section. This trip will be completed in our standard 16’ rafts. But, hey, remember this is just the warm-up for you “thrill seekers”!
We’ll quickly load up on board and head back up to the put-in for a 2nd run…but this time, you, your team and your guide will challenge the river in our smaller, 14’ “all-paddle” rafts! While the section of the river is the same, the river experience cannot be compared. The waves will seem bigger, wetter and wilder. The action is thrilling and spine-tingling as you paddle your craft hard through the largest waves in the smallest craft!
This rafting trip is best suited for those with prior rafting experience or a big appetite for whitewater. Participants must be over the age of 16 and 100 lbs…(sorry, no exceptions!) This trip is operated subject to favourable water levels, Wednesdays and Saturdays at 1: 45pm.
2021 Season: Guests joining us for a morning departure (8:45 AM) can upgrade and enjoy a delicious post-trip lunch at the RiverBase.
