Full description
This fast paced float is our family rafting tour. Suitable for kids as young as 4, and anyone who doesn't want to raft on big whitewater. Meet at our rafting base in Golden, BC. We'll get you into your rafting gear and our bus will drive you to the river. You'll raft 14 km on the calm Upper Canyon of the Kicking Horse River. This trip starts in Yoho National Park and will have you floating through beautiful forests and mountain scenery. There are some splashes, but it's not a big whitewater trip. You have the option to go for a swim if you're feeling up to it and will finish your tour with a riverside BBQ lunch. Choose an item hot off the grill, and from a variety of other snacks and drinks. At the end of your trip, our bus will drive you back to our rafting base where you can get changed and enjoy our hot showers.
