Overview:

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.

Description:

The Mile 5 trip is our most popular trip and the one with the longest season, early May-late September. We meet in the town of Jasper and transport you only 8 km south of town to the put in point. After suiting up in clean dry wetsuits and a safety talk it is off to 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, 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.

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Saint Albert, Canada on August 27th, 2014 great fun. Photos after were expensive considering we were at the back of raft and could only be glimpsed in a few photos
