Full description
The Athabasca Falls trip is probably our most scenic. After a 30-minute bus drive from town guests are suited up in our wetsuit gear. After a safety talk there is a 5-minute portage to the river. This 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 the rafters find themselves in a canyon. For the next 30-minutes there are no trails or roads next to the river it is just the river and you. The canyon ends with another set of rapids and spectacular views of the Athabasca River valley. Once back at the highway it is about 20 minutes to the take out. There are more sections of rapids but also flat section to enjoy and learn about the natural surroundings. All trips are in 8-person rafts with a licensed river guide.

Excitment for all ages!

We had a lovely time with Tia guiding us down the Athabaska river. She is personable and knowledgeable of the area. The rafting itself was what I would consider easy and no adult or child fell in. Overall a very organized group in terms of getting people in rafts though there was an overbooking problem (a third party hadn’t alerted them of a group of 7!) which they were able to manage professionally and quickly. Highly recommend for people of all ages!

My family and I had a blast out on the Athabasca river, we got splashed a lot with refreshing water and were given the opportunity to guide the boat when the water was calmer. The kids all hopped out to swim in the swim zone and the adults got soaked from head to toe from the waves caused by the rapids. I highly recommend this activity.

What an absolute blast we had! My husband and I had never been rafting before and our guides made it so easy and so much fun. Shout out to Cody and Lorenzo and Ellie! Thank you! Our safety was top priority but they ensured we all had an amazing experience! A huge thank you to all the staff with Jasper Rafting Adventures, we almost didn’t make it to our meeting place due to a traffic accident on the highway. Somehow we managed to get a signal & get a call through to the office and talked to a very nice young man who radioed ahead to the bus driver and had them wait to the very last second for us! He made sure we had proper directions and even stayed on the phone until we saw the bus. We are so grateful to everyone for all their help, being so gracious and for not making us feel like we were a burden. We will highly recommend this company to anyone interested in going rafting! And if we ever get the chance to return to Jasper we will definitely go on another tour with them!!
