Full description

Enjoy a family friendly rafting tour on Kicking Horse River. Suitable for kids as young as 4, and anyone who doesn't want to raft on big whitewater. Meet at the rafting base in Golden, BC. Get set up with your rafting gear and the bus will drive you to the river. Raft along 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, the bus will drive you back to the rafting base where you can get changed and enjoy a hot shower.
