Raft the big rapids with this guided, double-whitewater adventure on the Kicking Horse River.

Change spots in the boat as the guide takes a different line down the rapids, so the second time around is just as fun as the first. The tour includes all the necessary equipment and a barbecue lunch before.

Upon arriving at the river base at 1pm, check in and enjoy a delicious barbecue lunch of a beef or veggie burger, potato salad, pasta salad, veggies, chocolate brownies, and lemonade. After lunch, the guides will provide a safety briefing before handing out all the equipment. All groups will be assigned to their guides for some fun photos, then get ready to hit the water — it's time to raft.
