What You Can Expect

Athabasca Canyon Run Family Rafting: Class II Plus Rapids

Rafting pass high Canyon walls

Make your way to a departure point in downtown Jasper, where you’ll board a bus for the 30-minute trip to Athabasca Falls. Wear a swimsuit under your clothes for a quick change to a wetsuit, then join the river guide for a briefing on rafting technique and safety.

Grab a paddle and climb into a six passenger white water raft, then leave the shore with the thundering sounds of Athabasca Falls just behind you. The guide will steer you into the current as you paddle into a channel between the high rock walls of Athabasca Canyon.

You’ll take on a series of fun, exciting Class II rapids, then the river will flatten out for the relaxing final stretch. After roughly 1.5 hours on the water, the guide will steer you back to shore for the return trip to Jasper, where this tour concludes.

Please note: wetsuits, neoprene booties, and paddle jackets will be provided, as you’re sure to get wet while splashing through the rapids. Wear a swimsuit and bring dry clothes and a towel, as well as wool socks and a warm, post-paddle jacket for cooler days.
