Our Gentle Family Rafting Adventure is geared to families with young children ages 4 & up, or simply those seeking a gentle river trip. Marvel at Mountain tops over 10,000 Feet. Feel the Spray of a Wild Untamed River and play as a Family. This is a great morning ride on the Upper Reaches of the Kicking Horse River, with views of mountain peaks over 10,000 feet high.

The remaining 50% will be collected the evening prior to your trip departure. Your deposit is fully refundable up until 72 hours prior to trip departure. Within the 72 hours, we would keep the deposit.

We also have a $5 Per Person Cancellation Insurance that you can purchase upon checkout that waives the 72 hour cancellation period. Have more questions?
