We had a fantastic trip down the upper and middle section of Kicking Horse River with Dave O. This section of the river is rated class III-IV, which makes for a fun, splashy adventure. Hydra's put-in is easy to find and comfortable for guests (washrooms, changing rooms, warm showers) and they provide all the necessary gear for staying warm in the "invigorating" glacial water. Our guides were enthusiastic, knowledgable, and cognizant of guests' comfort levels and safety while on the water. The total experience takes about 4 hours, including a hearty lunch after paddling the rapids. Dave O has been guiding since 1992--he had a wealth of knowledge about the region's ecosystem and human history. Don't miss Emerald Lake and Takkakaw Falls along the road. We wouldn't have known to stop without Dave's recommendation!
