      Fun and well organised trip
      Jimmy was our guide and we had an excellent trip - he was knowledgeable about local area and brilliant at getting the best out of us when we needed to paddle.

      What an experience!
      Rafting on Sunwapta was an amazing experience. Fun rapids to ride within a picturesque setting. Great mixture of floating and enjoing the scenery with the thrill of riding the grade 2 & 3 rapids. All the staff were amazing, especially our guide Jimmy who really helped elevate the trip, keeping us safe on the water whilst making sure we were having fun. Can't wait to go again!

      Athabasca river rafting
      Such a great couple of hours. All the crew were super friendly and explained everything in detail. River wasn't exceptionally high but still got wet and loved the jump into the river at the end. Perhaps need to take a towel as you are changing with everyone else on the bus! Would definitely recommend

      So glad I did it.
      Arrived in Jasper and had a spare afternoon and had wanting to try rafting for ages. So booked it and glad I did. Great way to spend a few hours. I had Seb as my guide and he was friendly, fun and gave interesting points on the ride. Overall it's fun and the view is fantastic, the staff are friendly, must also mention Kate and Anayla as were working alongside and a good laugh.

      Fantastic family rafting experience!
      We had such a fantastic time as a family of 4 on this trip! Our children aged 9 and 7 years old both loved it. Our guide, Seb, was so lovely. He was knowledgable, personable and funny. We would definitely recommend this as a must do in Jasper and this company were a great choice.

      Amazing trip with next level guide
      Man amazing experience with incredible guides. Ours was Nate who was engaged and informative across so many of the events and wildlife on the river. Challenge yourself beyond what you think rafting is these guys and girls make a beginner event both fun and informative

      River as respite.
      This was a special trial program, and well worth it. The professional and personable attention paid by the driver (André) and the guide (Mike G) made this experience memorable and worth its weight in gold. The interp offered by both employees was in depth, culturally appropriate and down right hilarious! You could tell their love of the "job" came from a deep love and appreciation of the environment. I know this might be a small thing, but for me it's worth mentioning: while we were having lunch, the guide and the driver made sure the site was clean and secure at all times. Mike told us a personal story about a grizzly encounter he had had previously at that site - not food related, and as he told the story both he and Andre were looking around, tidying up, keeping the garbage together and putting the food out as was needed. I can tell you it was appreciated. Our little group consisted of 2 University students and one old woman (me). The students had never been to Jasper and I have lived here for over 30 years - that this trip enthralled all three of us, and made everyone feel well cared for is a testament to JRA ethics.

    My husband and 2 boys (ages 7 & 10) booked this trip last weekend and were fortunate to have Sabrina as our guide. The experience and views were incredible and Sabrina was so informative about the shaping on the runs, how the canyons were created, names of the mountains and details about the animals in the area. We felt incredibly safe and would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for an amazing family rafting adventure.

    2 of us took this white water raft trip. It was a fun experience & we felt confident with the guides we had. They were organized & we assumed all the proper cleaning techniques had occurred before our trip. The guides wear masks but participants on the raft don't have to (you must wear a mask on the bus trip to & from the rafting trip). Be sure you only wear shorts & t shirt or bathing suit under your clothes as you will change (on the bus in very cramped quarters) into a tight fitting wet suit. You can't have much underneath the suit & what you wear under it may get wet. The worst part of the adventure was changing into & out of the suit as it is a struggle to get on & off. I had hoped for more adventurous rapids but it was a good idea to not have anything too wild for our first trip. Your feet have to fit under a tight strap in the bottom of the raft as this is your anchor to keep you in the raft. If you have any foot or leg problems be aware of that. Although there are 3 companies listed in Jasper offering these trips they are all owned by the same company. The cost of the trip is reasonable but if you want a few pictures afterwards you'll pay $30 for a USB stick of them. I think that is a ridiculously high cost for 6 pictures. That is the reason I am giving the adventure a 4 instead of a 5 star. I think $10-$15 is a reasonable price for the pictures.

    All around great experience from everyone involved. Bus driver Eddie did great work and also took epic photos, felt safe in the bus the way there and back. Josh was super friendly and was very informative throughout the trip and was quick with the jokes! Ben helped us figure out our gear and was easy to talk to about any questions. I had Meghan as a tour guide, great safety meeting before the river helped us all figure out what we needed to do. She knew a lot about the river, pointing out and naming the mountains, showing us the osprey nest and letting us go for a swim at the appropriate time. Would recommend this raft company to anyone looking for adventure or just a chill time on the river.

    This was absolutely incredible. The whole experience is run by some of the most professional and friendly staff I’ve ever encountered on similar experiences before. Initially I was concerned at how experienced the staff would be as they were all very young but I couldn’t have been more wrong. From the moment we got on the bus it was clear that every one of them knew exactly what they were doing and the whole trip ran like clockwork. 10/10 would recommend to anyone in Jasper.

    Our trip down the Athabasca was a wonderful experience made all the more so by our amazing guide, Eddie. He freely shared with us his knowledge of the river and the region, all the while making sure we had a thrilling ride over the rapids that we will long remember.
    Thank you Eddie!!

    Our family had a great time with Jasper Rafting Adventures. We made a mistake with our date (completely our fault) and missed our initial trip time. Without even hesitating, they helped us to rebook. We are so grateful for their willingness to make this accommodation. The trip itself was so much fun. We had a family with individuals aged 8 to 65, and everyone left the boat with smiles and memories. The bus driver Mark took some amazing pictures. They are totally worth buying at the end of the trip because they are professionally done and get a view of your group in the boat and splashing over rapids. Our guide was Nate and he was incredible. We thought that he was hilarious! When he had the chance (between crashing waves) he told us stories and shared knowledge about the area. The ride itself was incredible. It was both scary and beautiful at the same time. We all got a chance to be 'refreshed' by the glacial river water. We are definitely coming back and we will recommend this trip to anyone spending time in Jasper!

    I was honestly pretty nervous going into the activity, because I had no previous experience with white water rafting AT ALL. But the guides were amazing at explaining everything and making us comfortable on the way there. Shane was a great driver and took some awesome photos of the group as well! And Connor definitely made the experience worth while, taking us exactly where we wanted to go and telling us what we needed to do to get there. Can’t wait to go again, would recommend these guys to anyone looking into white water rafting in Jasper for sure!!

    This rafting adventure was sensational. The staff, Maxine, Ellie and Tyler were fantastic. They clearly knew their stuff and provided everything, including information, directions, instructions and support with a smile. The raft trip, while doable for all ages, with a modest amount of fitness, was exciting enough to have lots of fun without being overly strenuous. Our raft had people aged from 8 (estimated) to 59 years old and all had a bunch of fun.
    Sit in the front of the raft as the splashes are very refreshing!!!
    The gear provided, including wet suit, jacket, booties, gloves and hats were perfect for the conditions and the staff knew their sizing. No doubt a lot of practice.
    Our guide, Maxine was awesome. She knew her stuff and provided a tour that included turning the raft to show us various sights and key points of interest. A very professional and knowledgeable tour. Would highly recommend this for anyone who wants a bit of excitement and a different perspective of the surrounds.

    Our rafting experience was AMAZING! We had never done white water with our kids (ages 16, 13 and 10) and decided to give it a try on our 12 day trip to Alberta. It was easily the highlight of the trip for all 5 of us. Our guide Jordan was incredibly skilled and had a great sense of humour. He made the trip all the more enjoyable by providing us with a history of the river and surrounding mountains. Our 10 year old son has already asked when he can raft with Jordan again. I would highly recommend this company if you are in Jasper. The whole crew was great and made the trip a lot of fun. Thank you for the memorable experience!

    From the moment you board the converted School bus and start your rafting experience, the Jasper Rafting Adventures team are top notch hosts. Everything is explained, and everyone is made to feel at ease.
    My 18 year old son and I were lucky to sit at the front of the raft, with six others and our excellent guide Juan behind us.
    Juan made sure we had a great experience, talking us through the various commands before we boarded, and then whilst on the water making sure we got the most from our trip - from interpretive sight seeing on the quieter stretches of water, to the exhilaration of a ‘glacial facial’ as we descended the rapids.
    The Athabasca Falls run is a Class 2 rapid - so not too taxing, but great fun for all ages.
    I totally recommend this experience with this excellent group of rafting coaches.
