Experience Jasper's Athabasca River Mile 5 run! Enjoy the beautiful mountain scenery on this 2-hour round trip adventure. The Athabasca River Mile 5 run is a perfect introduction to white water rafting, has plenty of splashes and stunning mountain vistas. It is a must-do family adventure in Jasper!
Adventurers must be at least 5 years old and accompanied by an adult.


After meeting your guide in the town of Jasper, you'll head 8 km south of town to the put-in point. After suiting up in clean gear and receiving a safety talk, you start heading down the river. The section begins with about a 10-minute float. This allows the paddler time to feel comfortable in the raft, experience the river environment and take in the 360-degree mountain view. After this short float, the grade 2 rapids begin. Grade 2 is big enough to get everyone who wants to get wet, but it is unlikely anyone will go for an unexpected swim. After 4 or 5 sections of rapids, the Miette River joins the Athabasca, highlighting the color difference between a rain and snow fed river and a glacier fed river. The trip ends just around the corner at Old Fort Point. After getting out of your wet gear, it is a 3 km drive back to town. All trips are in 8 person-guided rafts. Rain or shine, this trip is great for ages 5-95.

    Great experience for our family! Kids absolutely loved it and are already wanting to go back (daughter 15/ son 10). Our guide Baiden was great and in tune with the whole family. You will be provided with a wetsuit - you should wear a bathing suit underneath. Bring your change of dry clothes on the bus to change into afterwards. Got some photos taken by Tyler for great memories (additional $$).

    We had a great time. Marty, Sam and Tyler were a hoot. They kept us entertained and Marty was our guide who was well experienced and made sure we had fun. Rapids 2 is what i would recommended for your first time at least. It’s pretty straight forward and not super challenging.

    Before leaving for the experience my wife was not too sure that she could go through with the experience. She still felt the same way as we were getting into the rafts. Our two guides were very good at putting her at ease and building up her confidence.................and after the run down the river she was glad that they did!! Both guides spoke to us all the way through on many topics such as information about water temperature and even age of water, local history particularlyhistoric and current wildfires and their effect on the communities. On the bas to and from the river were met a small group made up of trainee and trainers guides from the company and they were a credit to themselves and their employers. As a bonus Eddie the bus driver, who also doubles as the photographer, took some spectatcular shots that will ensure that this trip will always be remembered. Sorry that I can't remember our two guides names but would like to thank them for a memorable experience. Guys you made it to No.1
