“Great rafting trip”

Golden River Adventures
Reviewed 15 August 2014

I have done whitewater rafting only once before my trip with Alpine. I would say that this trip was amazing and I would definitely go again. Our guide, Scott, was very capable and made the entire experience safe and fun.

I would recommend Alpine to anyone looking for a great rafting experience. The day flew by!

An amazing tour, our guide Jimmy was fantastic and managed to get all of us up on our boards and comfortable with navigating the river in no time. We paddled to just upstream of Wapta falls and portaged along an amazingly scenic trail to just below the falls. The tour continued down the kicking horse with a little bit of whitewater and excitement, we even got to see our guide take an unexpected splash into the river.

Would definitely do this again, and I look forward to seeing Golden River Adventures grow their tours, can't wait to see what they come up with next!

Hi Bart,

As this is a new product , we are honing the tours and working on creating new SUP & Inflatable Kayak routes. The tours are suitable for adventurous folks like your group was. Expanding our product offerings, upgrading our website to have more information is all in the works. Again, thank you for your review and enjoy the rest of your summer

Our experience with Alpine Rafting was the highlight of our tour through the interior. The team at Alpine Rafting was very well organized and trip down the river went off without a hitch. Our guide, Scott, was very knowledgeable about the river and made certain to show us an exciting but safe ride.

The team at Alpine Rafting also fit us with all of the gear we needed to have a great time - lifejackets and helmets (of course) along with splashtops, wetsuits and booties so that we didn't have to worry about getting cold (because you WILL get wet).

We did the Afternoon Whitewater as it was the only trip that would fit into our schedule but after our run we definitely wished that we had time for more. I absolutely recommend Alpine Rafting for a fun adventure.
