Single Day Guide Hires & Fees

If guests have booked accommodations at CrossRiver, and are not interested in an all-inclusive package, rafting guide hires may also be available while they are here. Our guides are all certified with the highest industry qualifications required for the trips in our area. These include, at least, advanced wilderness first aid training; swift-water rescue level 3 training; and years of rafting and water experience. The main certifying organization that our guides have graduated from is Rescue Canada; well known worldwide for their high level of standards and instruction. Just as importantly, however, our guides are passionate about being in the wilderness and love sharing it with others. Their backgrounds and personalities are all different, and each knows how to create fun, safe, and even inspirational experiences in their own ways. Your guide will also be an experienced trip leader, as well as knowledgeable about the area—its history, First Nations peoples, nature, animals, stories, medicines, traditional uses, wilderness skills—and how it connects with our lives today (see more about our people here, for more specific information on individual guides). Rafting destinations and possibilities will all be discussed during the hiring process, and depending on guide availability and guest age and weight ratios, they could include: a half or full day on the Kootenay River; or three separate canyon opportunities on the Kicking Horse River. We will return in the late-afternoon to the Wilderness Centre in time for a welcomed dinner and some relaxation time. The fees below are quoted on a per-day basis, are subject to change without further notice, and are based on a minimum number of four to six participants for each out-trip.
