About mid-way downriver, you'll pull-in to the shore for a short land portage around the impressive Rearguard Falls. Jumping back on board your raft at the base of the falls, you'll continue through more sections of whitewater, passing steep canyon walls while surrounded by a backdrop of spectacular Canadian Rockies scenery. Be sure to keep an eye out for the abundant wildlife and seasonal spawning salmon along the way.

    Our party of six did the raft trip on the Fraser River on Aug 29, 2022 and it was really great! The scenic hour long bus ride to and from the river was amazing by Moose Lake and Mt Robson. Our guide Anton was the BEST and was humorous and knowledgeable. It was a physical activity and while the portage was a bit of a challenge, it afforded us an incredible view of the falls. Great equipment, organization and support- I would highly recommend Maligne Adventures!

    We went on the Maligne Adventures Fraser Class III rapids. We had such an amazing and fun time! The scenery was beautiful and the rapids were manageable for beginners. The staff were friendly, coordinated, and ensured our safety at all times.

    My daughter and I had a unforgettable experience rafting! From start to finish this trip was completely organized. We also got to see Mt. Robson on a crystal clear day making this venture extra special. Our guide, Brody, was experienced, knowledgeable and entertaining. I highly recommend this excursion.

    Today I took 6 friends whitewater rafting on the Fraser river. 5 first timers ranging in age from 47 to 78. They were all quite apprehensive at first but took the plunge and were so glad they did. Under the expert guiding of J (Jason) we had an amazing day and could not recommend this experience highly enough. The whole day was run perfectly by a great team of people. Thank you guys.

    On a rainy day in Jasper National Park our family of three decided to call Maligne Adventures for a white water rafting experience… we’d get wet anyway so why not doing that with style! We booked their level 3+ Mighty Frazer River package and before soon we were on a converted school bus en route towards our starting point close to Mount Robson. Safety briefing first, paddles up for photos and off we go… Fortune favours the brave - the sun came out just as we started paddling down the river! Powerful white waters, paddling team work and surprising splashes while feeling safe at all times. Amazing experience, fun guides and super photographer - great trip! Definitely recommended!

    Amazing day experiencing real white water. The Maline Adventures Crew were great fun and had the skill when it mattered. They made the day such and amazing experience. Shame we only had time for one trip. Cheers
