Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Mag­i­cal Jasper

What is it about rain­bows that makes peo­ple stop in their tracks? One thing is for sure, top off a raft trip with a rain­bow at the very end and you’ll know you’re sure not in Kansas anymore!


It’s Almost Here!

We’re pumped and so are our rafts. Raft­ing sea­son is almost here & every day’s melt adds to the excite­ment. We’re book­ing trips start­ing April 29th.

Why not kick off this sum­mer with an unfor­get­table raft­ing adven­ture with Jasper Raft Tours.

Have you reserved your spot yet?

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!


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.
