KOOTENAY RIVER RUNNERS REVIEWS


  • “A thrilling experience!”

    Wild time on the river with some insane rapids! Our guide Bill was excellent too, providing a thrilling experience!

  • “Exceptional experience for our first time rafting”

    My kids were a little nervous before we started but once we got on the water they felt safe and comfortable. We never once doubted Zach and you could tell he knows that creek like the back of his hand. Exceptional experience for our first time rafting. It won’t be our last!

  • Well organized rafting trip with an instructor in every raft. These are rather small rapids, so it’s well suited for families and young kids. The water is cold year round, so wet suits are provided (and necessary) as well. Our guide James was very fun and informative on the area, giving recommendations and keeping us entertained with games during slower periods.

  • “Wicked, awesome experience”

    This is the icing on the cake, the most ultimate rafting trip to the day, from a knowledgeable guide and very safety conscious. This was awesome!!! Dean was our guide and would 10 of 10 recommend him. Wicked, awesome experience.

  • “Exceptional experience for our first time rafting”

    Had a fantastic experience with the Kootenay River Runners at Radium Hot Springs. Staff was very professional, safe, and fun. Scenery is breathtaking. We would rebook with them in a heartbeat.

  • “Rafting the Rockies”

    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.
