Located at Banff National Park, one of Canada's most popular travel destinations, the famous Kicking Horse River provides a perfect rafting trip for all abilities and ages from 8-80.

Daily trips are available from mid-May to mid-September for first-time or experienced white water adventurers, families who enjoy outdoor recreation and those seeking a milder white water rafting experience in Canada. For your convenience, rafting trips depart daily from Banff and Lake Louise throughout the summer months.

Choose from a variety of exciting white water rafting and milder river journeys.

Wild Water Adventures offers transportation from accommodations in Banff and Lake Louise.

You’ll experience over 14 sets of named rapids during your 1½ hrs. of fun on the river. (The whole trip, “greetings” to “goodbyes”, takes about 3 to 3 ½ hours.) The named rapids range from class II (easy, fun) to class IV (very splashy, challenging and wet!) and there is plenty of fast moving water and smaller waves to enjoy while you float through breathtaking scenery and past towering canyon walls.

There are numerous rapids, such as, “Roller Coaster”, “Hopi Hole”, “Goat Rapid” and “Twin Peaks” that are certain to leave you with big smiles. The most famous rapid is known throughout the area . . . the “Portage” and “Shotgun” rapids! Long, continuous, quick and tricky, this section of river is, without question, the most popular and memorable section of true class IV to IV+ rafting in the area. Don’t miss it!
