Heli Rafting - The Ultimate Adventure
- Duration: 8 Hours (approx.)
- Location: Golden, BC
- Product code: UA
Take a minute to dream about your ideal day of rafting.
There might be huge rapids and waterfalls, beautiful scenery and your closest group of friends. A hot lunch, a river swim, a wetsuit that makes you feel like a superhero and a free beer at the end.
You’re there and it’s perfect… but wait...
Just when you think this day can’t get any better, you’re getting into a helicopter. And that helicopter is flying you to the biggest whitewater on the river!
This isn’t a dream – it’s our Ultimate Adventure Heli Rafting trip.
The Ultimate Adventure is the most complete rafting experience on the Kicking Horse River, and it’s exclusive to Glacier Raft Company.
The famous lower canyon is known for it’s 4 km stretch of continuous class 4 whitewater, and it’s huge vertical rock walls (this just keeps getting better and better, doesn’t it) and the only way to access it is by helicopter.
If you want this dream to be your reality be sure to book soon. Space is limited to only 32 people per day.
p.s. Everything we mentioned in your dream is in fact part of the Ultimate Adventure… except the friends part. That’s up to you.
* The lower canyon can only be run at specific water levels, and it will be closed at certain times throughout the summer when the water becomes too high for us to safely run it. When this occurs, we run the middle canyon whitewater section twice. Not to worry though – at high water, the middle canyon is as big as it gets! June and early July tend to be when we see the highest water of the summer. If you book a heli trip early season please know it's the highest chance we won't be able to raft the lower canyon. If we can't raft the lower canyon you will not be flying in the helicopter, as the heli is only needed to access the lower canyon. The other sections of the river have road access.
*If you have to cancel your trip, the full amount is refundable (less a $10.00 per person processing fee) provided we are given at least 30 days notice prior to your trip. If notice occurs within 30 days of the trip the $100.00 per person deposit becomes non-refundable, and within 21 days of the trip the full amount is non-refundable.
*We need a minimum number of people to raft the lower canyon. If those numbers are not met, we will not be able to heli into the lower canyon. If minimum numbers are not met you will not be charged for the lower canyon portion of the trip, or for the heli flight.
*Advance notice of whether or not we'll be rafting the lower canyon cannot be given, as many factors can change very quickly. The decision to raft the lower canyon is made the morning of the trip when we have the most recent information on water levels etc. Please try to understand that river levels are completely up to Mother Nature and are not something we can control. If you are booking this trip purely for the heli flight, please do not. We are a rafting company, not a heli tour company, and as such we will provide you with the best rafting experience possible given the conditions on the day. Hopefully the heli flight is part of that experience, but it's not a guarantee.
*We are on Mountain Time - the same time as Calgary and Banff. If you are coming from the west please account for the 1 hour time difference. No refunds will be given for trips missed due to the time zone change.
