Jasper National Park is an amazing place to experience nature, and a gentle adventure on the Athabasca River is a great way to do it. This small group float trip takes you down several miles on the Class II rapids—that means you can expect a few splashes along the way, but nothing too scary. Your guide regales you with stories of the area and its inhabitants as you go.

Nice float trip with just...
John_B, Sep. 2021
Nice float trip with just the right amount of white water to make it interesting. The guide was knowledgeable and easy to talk too.
10/10 recommend!
Denuka_M, Sep. 2021
Had an incredible experience! Highly recommend for people of all ages and those looking for a relaxed adventure in the water. We loved our host, Courtnall! His stories and fun facts kept us all engaged and made for a memorable time. Great group of hard working folks managing this excursion and ensuring a safe ride.
Amazing Family Fun Adventure!
Rhonda_B, Aug. 2021
Highly recommend this for any family. Four of us (kids 9-13) had an absolute blast. Courtnall our tour guide/raft lead absolutely knowledgeable of the land, river and area. Showed us things from weather towers on top of mountain peaks, to an osprey nest, explained each set of rapids and gave us a heads up of splash’s coming. Next time if would wear waterproof clothing but it was an amazing family fun adventure. Plus our bus driver Dave was pretty awesome as well. He was Super hilarious, very knowledgeable of the town and area, plus stopped for us to see some Wapiti. I can’t wait to do it again.
Would recommend

Our family really enjoyed this raft tour. The guides were all friendly, funny, and knowledgeable. Be prepared to get splashed by the rapids. On a nice, sunny day it was quite refreshing.

Lisa_D, Jul. 2021
We loved it! James was fun and made sure everybody got a taste of the cool water. He let my nervous kids know what was coming, how to be safe and some terminology. We all got some water at some point to keep us laughing and having fun.
So Much Fun
Marie_B, Jul. 2021
This is a great activity for all ages. You will get wet! Such an amazing trip down the river, even though it rained partway through the ride. Our guide Joel was amazing, funny, and informative, and very in control! Although we were soaked and cold by the end ( due to the quick change in weather), we laughed and had a great time. Well worth the experience. Make sure you have a complete change of dry clothes when finished. 3 teenagers on board who were thrilled! Marie
Very beautiful scenery

Athabasca the beautiful.
Lynnette_K, Sep. 2020
The float trip was everything I expected and more! The staff were very friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. Safety precautions were in place and the rafter was very entertaining and informative. It was the perfect day to see and experience the Athabasca River up close and personal!
