Kayaking in Golden, British Columbia

INFLATABLE KAYAKING Glacier Raft Company’s 2 person inflatable kayaks are a great option for those looking for a fun paddle. KAYAK TOURS Our 2 hour guided kayak tour will take you through the town of Golden, B.C. Start on the edge of town on the Kicking Horse River and paddle your way downstream to merge with the Columbia River. Experience a taste of the Columbia Wetlands and watch for some of the 265 species of birds that live here. You’ll learn some paddling tips, pass under the Kicking Horse Pedestrian Bridge, experience 2 amazing rivers in one trip, and be surrounded by beautiful peaks the entire time. This is class 1 moving water and you may get a splash or two. The minimum age for a kayak tour is 10 years, and a minimum of 4 people are required. Some paddling experience is recommended. KAYAK RENTALS If you’d rather explore on your own, renting an inflatable kayak is also possible. There are many beautiful lakes in the Columbia Valley that would provide the perfect adventure for a group of family or friends. Cedar Lake is the closest option but we can help guide you in the right direction.

Tours, Lessons, and Diving


We have been commercially running trips on the Kicking Horse River since 1982. The glacier is Golden’s original raft company, and it’s still a favorite of locals and visitors alike. While many changes have occurred over the years, many of the most important things have stayed the same. We are still a small, local, family run business. We still value safety as our ultimate priority, while striving to provide as much fun as possible. We know it the little things that make a big difference, and we continue to value each and every guest who joins us. Whether it's your first time, or you make an annual appearance, we will welcome you into our rafting family.  We truly love what we do, and we hope to share it with you!
