Mother’s Day Sunday May 12th

motherHey! Are you for­get­ting something?

This com­ing Sun­day, May 12th, is Mother’s Day. How about treat­ing your mom, gramma, aunts … all those great women who looked after you …  Well, how about treat­ing them to a fun after­noon of rafting?

Our spe­cially designed, safe, com­fort­able rafts are per­fect for the whole fam­ily, from the very young to the very old.

Make the whole day spe­cial: You’ve got time to go out for break­fast then join us at noon for 2 1/2 hours of care­free fun where we look after all the details. We’ll even take the pic­tures for you.

But book now. The rafts are fill­ing up & it’s look­ing like we’re going to have great weather this weekend.


We love deals! Do you?

We love great deals just as much as any­one. How great that The Fair­mont Jasper Park Lodge has spe­cial pro­mos for BC & Alberta Res­i­dents: Come play in your back yard, Jasper! Of course, while you’re stay­ing at the lodge, take advan­tage of shut­tle ser­vice to come out rafting.

And, any­one from any­where can book the “99 Ways to Play Spring Vaca­tion Pack­age.” You get the con­ve­nience of book­ing your raft trip though the lodge’s concierge & charg­ing the trip to your room. The concierge will take care of arrange­ments includ­ing trans­porta­tion. Plus, you get a $99 credit per night that can be used towards your raft trip.

Their Spring Mid­week Travel Pack­age gives you $50 towards activ­i­ties, like raft trips, booked through your concierge. Get away mid­week & save money.

How sweet is that?

30 x 30 Nature Challenge

David SuzukiThe David Suzuki Foun­da­tion pub­lishes great arti­cles about how to improve your well-being. One recent arti­cle about stress reminded us about how lucky we are as raft guides to be work­ing in the great outdoors.

Did you know that “sit­ting is the smok­ing of our gen­er­a­tion,” accord­ing to some recent stud­ies? Long hours at sit-down jobs and school is dam­ag­ing our health. But, par­don the pun, you don’t have to take this bad news sit­ting down.

You can greatly relieve stress lev­els by com­mit­ting to add nature back into your daily rou­tine. David Suzuki has a great chal­lenge that will actu­ally help you intro­duce activ­ity in nature. It’s called the 30 x 30 Chal­lenge.

When you sign up for the chal­lenge, you get the sup­port of the Suzuki Foun­da­tion in help­ing to moti­vate you and your fam­ily by shar­ing your diary of activ­i­ties, sub­mit­ting your pho­tos & shar­ing great tips for inspiration.

We’re pretty lucky in Jasper because we’re sur­rounded by nature, bike paths, hik­ing trails, rivers, Mar­mot Basin Ski Hill and a com­mu­nity that is com­mit­ted to an active lifestyle. But, if you take the 30 x 30 chal­lenge, chance are that you’ll dis­cover loads of nature’s gems in your own community.

Have fun!


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.
