Fun for the Whole Family

Bring the whole fam­ily! Our spe­cially designed rafts offer a safe, com­fort­able ride that any first time rafter will enjoy. Our trips are fun for every­one from tod­dlers to seniors.

You will float along a 16 kilo­me­tre stretch of the Athabasca River, pass­ing through many small sets of rapids and calm stretches. Your National Park Licensed guide will point out the nat­ural and human his­tory of Jasper. For instance, did you know that the Athabasca River is the same route that was used by the “fur traders” many years ago, (David Thomp­son 1811).

We run rain or shine. After all, there’s a good chance you’ll get a lit­tle wet any­ways. If you like wear our com­pli­men­tary yel­low pon­cho & keep it as a sou­venir. Be pre­pared for some laughs and we’ll take care of the rest.

Green Bus

Board our fun shut­tle bus and let the tour begin!

Our buses shut­tle you out to our launch site. Your guided tour begins from the moment you get comfy on the bus. Our trained parks guides will share their in-depth knowl­edge of the parks in an enter­tain­ing, lively style. Before you know it, your bus will pull into the launch site where guides fit you with your raft­ing gear … every­thing but the oars. We do all the row­ing while you do all the enjoying.

We even take photos.

At the end of your trip, your bus takes you back to town. The 2 1/2 hour trip will be some­thing you’ll talk about for years to come.
