What to Expect

Relax and enjoy an afternoon that you'll never forget. This is a true Canadian outdoor experience.

Take a fun and scenic trip down the Athabasca River, a designated Canadian Heritage River.A National Park-licensed guide will provide commentary on the human and natural history of Jasper while navigating you along the same route used by the fur traders over 200 years ago. The specially designed, 7-meter- or 25-foot-long, oar-powered rafts come equipped with life jackets, and provide a safe, comfortable ride through a few small sets of rapids and calm stretches that any first-time rafter will enjoy. Don’t worry - the guides do all the rowing. All you have to do is sit back and relax while you take in the spectacular scenery. 

You can spot various local wildlife, including elks, deer, moose, coyotes, wolves, eagles, ospreys, mountain sheep, and bears.

Amazing, good family fun and worth every penny.

This activity was so much fun. I was a little bit wary to begin with as I'm no water baby but I had so much fun I'm going to recommend it to all my friends and family. We have lots of people visit us from the UK and this is going to be the number 1 trip we will be taking all of them on. P.S. Take a spare set of clothing with you because you WILL get wet.

Thanks Ted for a wonderful and informative and adventurous trip!!!

We had a blast and really enjoyed the commentary from Ted. He is full of fun knowledge. Thanks

lots of fun

It was the first time my parents sat in a raft and they loved it!! The view on the river was gorgeous. We even saw a baby black bear on the river bank. Definitely a must if you love canoeing/kayaking or any water sports.

Good time, fun

Guide Logan was great and entertaining. Fun and scenic trip.
