Kicking Horse Scenic Float

Meander through the breathtaking Rocky Mountain scenery of the upper Kicking Horse River in beautiful Golden, BC. Our Scenic Float was designed as a warm up to white water rafting with a gentle, relaxing start including the famous and enchanting waterfall canyon stop. 

A few fun sections of white water at the end give us a taste of what the rest of the Kicking Horse River is like. We wrap it up by serving a delicious riverside steak BBQ lunch the whole family will love.

The Kicking Horse Scenic Float is a great introduction to river rafting adventures for the whole family or for someone who just wants a little splash of white water. 

Our photographer will be taking your picture and our guides will be filming so be sure to check out the videos and photos at our lunch spot.

Many of our guests on the Scenic Float end up feeling so comfortable and excited by the taste of white water at the end that they ask their guide at lunch if they can continue down the white water sections of the Kicking Horse River.

 Our photographer will be taking your picture and our guides will be filming, be sure to check out the videos and photos back at our base!
