I was a bit worried about white water rafting on the kicking horse river but don't be! It was so much fun and it is safe. The guide are highly trainer and knowledgeable.

Very well ran rafting and staff were professional, did the whole day rafting and thoroughly enjoyed. All wetsutes etc were provided (and plenty of sizes available). Lunch was yummy. A few too many cheesy jokes, but it helped set the fun for the day.
