Raft on a Canadian Heritage river
Learn the history of the area from your licensed river guide
Enjoy grade 2 whitewater on the Athabasca River, a Canadian Heritage river. View spectacular 360 degree mountain views while you learn about human and natural history from your licensed park river guide.
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, wet but it is unlikely anyone will go for an unexpected/unwanted swim.
If you are brave enough there are place you can choose to go for a swim in the glacial water. After 4 or 5 sections of rapids the Miette River joins the Athabasca and 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 rafts with a licensed river guide.
