Kicking Horse Classic Whitewater Rafting
The Kicking Horse Classic is our premier trip, including all of the biggest & best rapids on the river. Starting at our private river base, this unforgettable journey begins calmly, allowing rafters to familiarize themselves with the raft, paddles and guide’s commands. Get to know your fellow rafters and find out fun facts about the river as you take in the views of the serene upper section. Then, it’s onto the mighty rapids the Kicking Horse is famous for. As the canyon narrows, the waves build, drenching rafters in continuous rapids such as Shot Gun, Man Eater and Roller Coaster. It’s a popular whitewater journey that combines a mix of class 1-4 rapids, finishing 20 km downstream.
