Icebreakers!

We’re num­ber one!

It’s offi­cial. Raft­ing sea­son has begun with Jasper Raft Tours claim­ing the first raft tour of 2013.

This after­noon, we’re run­ning a Famil­iar­iza­tion Trip for our enthu­si­as­tic tourism work­ers, local tour oper­a­tors and guides. We couldn’t have asked for bet­ter weather. It’s sunny and warm. Yes­ter­day the rain helped pump up the water lev­els. That together with the early melt will make for an awe­some run today head­ing out from Alpine Vil­lage and land­ing at Old Fort Point.

Join us for our first pub­lic trips on April 29th. Book here to reserve your spot.

What does it take to Be A Raft Guide?

Swiftwater TrainingJasper Raft Tours are designed for every­one. Out spe­cially designed rafts & trips suit all rafters, from the expe­ri­enced to the novice, from the very young to the very old, from dis­abled peo­ple, ninety seven year olds, peo­ple with oxy­gen tanks, peo­ple in wheel chairs, preg­nant women…. you name it!

Raft Guide Training

Swiftwater TrainingBut your safety and sat­is­fac­tion isn’t just about safe rafts on a rel­a­tively mild adventure.

Our guides are amaz­ing to begin with: great with peo­ple, won­der­fully humor­ous, friendly, and, if that isn’t enough, we run them through the best train­ing raft guides can get.

Res­cue Canada Instruction

Swiftwater TrainingWe hire Res­cue Canada’s Senior Mas­ter Instruc­tors to train our guides in Swift­wa­ter Res­cue & Train­ing.

Swiftwater TrainingOur guides learn the lat­est skills for water safety. They know how to read the water and avoid prob­lems. But, should they ever need to respond to any issue, they are all fully prepared.

We take our jobs seriously.

But that doesn’t mean we can’t have a lot of laughs & fun when we’re out there splash­ing through the waves with you!

Alberta Will Capture Your Heart

This video tells the story of the many peo­ple who have made Jasper their new home. They may have come here to work a sea­son but the deci­sion to stay a life­time was easy. One thing we know for cer­tain is that, even if you decide to visit for a hol­i­day, we know you’ll want to plan to return.

The video begins at Spirit Island on Maligne Lake . You’ll see this mag­i­cal place reap­pear through­out the video as well as other trea­sures of Jasper National Park.

See for your­self &

Life in the World’s Largest Dark Sky Preserve

dark_sky_384

Did you know that, in 2011, the Royal Astro­nom­i­cal Soci­ety of Canada (RASC) offi­cially des­ig­nated Jasper National Park a Dark Sky Pre­serve?

What’s even more amaz­ing is that Jasper National Park’s 11,000 km2 is now the largest dark sky pre­serve in the world.

Park vis­i­tors are astounded when they expe­ri­ence the brightly lit night skies. But it isn’t being lit by arti­fi­cial street lights. Camp­ing areas glow with the bright lights of the stars.

I won­der if that’s why so many peo­ple come to Jasper for their wed­ding cer­e­monies. Who can resist that kind of ambience?
