KOOTENAY RIVER RUNNERS REVIEWS


  • “Best whitewater rafting experience”

    Whitewater rafting at its finest. Dean guided us down the river thru the rapids with experience and incredible knowledge. The entire team is professional and keeps safety their number one priority. We will return in early summer next year to do another tour down the river. Thank you, Dean, and I hope you have an adventurous and safe Winter. See you next year.

  • “Safety is a top priority”

    Definitely recommend these guys. Staff were friendly and engaging, safety is obviously a top priority, and the guides and equipment inspire confidence. Dean was a great guide, very personable and thoroughly experienced. I was impressed with how he handled the boat and made sure everyone from front to back got to fully experience the rapids. Some really fun rapids too – I hope to go back in spring sometime when they’re really pumping.

  • “Amazing Experience”

    What an amazing experience!! This was my second time rafting with my kids, and it did not disappoint. Our guides Mason and Eric were absolutely amazing… so knowledgeable about the local area, they made the trip so fun. We didn’t want it to end. We will be back for sure and recommend Kootenay River Runners to everyone we come across. Thank-you for the beautiful memories.

  • “A must do!”

    Four of us did the whole day trip on Kootenay. We had a fabulous time, the staff were great and of course the views were amazing. It’s great to see the park from the water and we had so much fun with our fellow crew !!!! Special thanks to Mason our skipper and Q, whilst it was great fun safety was never compromised. Guides were a credit to the company and ensured the experience was all positive. This is a must do if you are in the area!

  • “EPIC!”

    Absolute BEST trip ever! I took my apprehensive 7 year old and thrill seeking 10 year old and they both called it EPIC! The crew and guide were amazing- tons of safety knowledge to keep them at ease all while having a little fun and a guide that was super knowledgeable about the water, the geography…everything! I almost forgot lunch- LOVED that they bought bakery from the local- so fresh! 110% recommendation. And we even got FREE photos on Facebook! Champs indeed

  • “Highly recommend going with Kootenay River Runners”

    We had a fantastic time rafting the Kicking Horse in August. Our guide Dean was super knowledgeable and was a delight to raft with. On a river full of operators, I highly recommend going with Kootenay River Runners if you want an awesome time rafting in Golden.
