Know More about this tour

Starting at the base of the Athabasca falls, you'll raft 15 km down the majestic Athabasca Valley. This 3-hour round trip provides spectacular canyon scenery that combined with moderate rapids, make this an adventure trip ideal for the whole family.

After a 30-minute bus drive from town, you'll be suited up in your rafting gear. Prior to departure on the river, your guides will provide a safety talk. All guides are trained in First Aid, CPR and are federally licensed. After the safety talk, there is a 5-minute portage down a road (built for Marilyn Monroe!) to the river.

The river trip starts with a bang. Once out in the main current, the first set of rapids is only seconds way. Once these rapids have soaked everyone in the raft, you'll find yourself in a spectacular canyon only seen from the river. For the next 30-minutes, there are no trails or roads next to the river. It is just you and the river.

The canyon ends with another set of rapids and amazing views of the Athabasca River valley. Once back on the highway, it is about 20 minutes to the townsite. There are many sections of rapids, as well as a flat section to enjoy and learn about the natural surroundings. All trips are in 8 person-guided rafts.

This rafting trip is great for all levels and operates rain or shine. You'll be provided with a wetsuit, booties, paddle jacket and life jacket. A towel, dry set of clothes, a snack and water may be left in the bus for after your trip. Wear shorts or a bathing suit under your wetsuit. Please do not bring valuables on the bus. Your driver will be taking photos at several locations along the river so theres no need for your camera or phone on the river. Pictures will be ready for purchase on a memory stick at the end of your adventure.

    Had a brilliant time, our guide Nate was lovely and so knowledgable about the area and local wildlife, Eddie our driver/photographer was also fantastic!

    This was the only part of my vacation that the kids said was more fun than the hotel pool. Zie took us for a great ride.

    From booking to instructions/expectations on the bus, to the trip to the trip itself, we were very impressed. Our guide, Juan, was very personable and made the trip that much more fun. My family and I traveled from Pennsylvania, USA and are glad that we included this raft trip into our plans while in Jasper.

    Awesome fun on the river this afternoon with a terrific guide in Nate. He really got the blend of humour, education and fun on the water right - clearly loves his job and the company! Highly recommend this as an activity for anyone around the Jasper area.

    Jordan and Nick were fantastic. Super friendly and helpful. Jordan was a great guide on the water, so knowledgeable of the area and it was easy to see he loves what he does. It was a lot of fun and we even had a quick swim in the Athabasca river. Highly recommend this company and if you get Jordan and Nick your in luck.

    We did the Athabasca Falls run and it was absolutely incredible. Our guide was Juan and he was awesome. He had so much knowledge about the area and was so fun! Also, Kate was our awesome driver and photographer. The pictures she got of us were of top quality and I was so impressed. Everything about this excursion was amazing, no complaints!

    What a fun time! Just enough rapids to make it the perfect trip and the scenery was wonderful. Andre was our guide and he was a great! Only suggestion would be better accommodations to change in and out of your wetsuit.

    This was definitely the most fun and excitement we had on our trip. The guides were awesome! This is a great introductory run to whitewater rafting (Level 2-2.5) . We didn't believe our guide when he said that we submerged in water until we saw the pictures! Amazing!!!
