Experience long rapids and spectacular scenery when Whitewater Rafting at Chancellor Peak Chalets

At Chancellor Peak Chalets, we have the mighty Kicking Horse River right out our back door!

About the Kicking Horse River

The Kicking Horse River has three main sections for Whitewater Rafting. The first is the upper canyon and is considered a class 3-4 whitewater run and is suitable for canoes, kayaks and rafts. The middle canyon is considered an advanced class 4-5 run suitable for experienced Kayakers/Rafters and Canoeists only. Since the middle canyon is considered so dangerous, none of the rafting companies have tours there. The lower canyon is where most of the rafting is done as it has suitable water levels and still is exciting enough for all rafters (except the most hard core). The lower river is also suitable for those interested in fishing.

Raft the Upper & Middle Canyon of the Kicking Horse River for over a 20 km trip. Your unforgettable journey begins calmly, allowing rafters to familiarize themselves with the raft, paddles and guides commands. Enjoy the serene upper section of the river before heading into the mighty rapids of the middle canyon. As the Canyon narrows, the waves build, taking rafters on whitewater journey through class 4 rapids, finishing 20 km downstream!

Enjoy 2 to 2.5 hours of rafting time before heading back to the rafting base to enjoy a delicious BBQ lunch and view a slide show of your rafting photos!

This trip is perfect for the first time rafter. No experience is necessary.
