We did this as part of a tour through the Rockies and it was one of the highlights of our trip. We had my mum with us who has mobility restrictions and the rafting guys were amazing, they got her onto the raft with ease.

it is certainly not white water rafting but great fun and a different view of the scenery and wildlife. our "driver" Brad kept us interested and amused with his knowledge and anecdotes. One of the highlights of our trip and very well organised.

This was one of the highlights of our trip through the Canadian Rockies. We had two people with mobility issues and one who suffers from motion sickness and all got through with no problems at all.

We went on this trip on the Athbasca River in early September. The inflatable boats carry some 20 people and are very stable. Everyone had sprayproof ponchos and full life jackets provided, and the "skipper", Logan, was extremely competent whilst also being entertaining and knowledgeable on wildlife, birds, nature and local history. We had a full spectrum on board including... More

Thank you Bob for pointing out that we can accommodate people with mobility issues. From toddlers to seniors, we can get almost anyone out to enjoy the beautiful scenery Jasper has to offer. The 3 hour trip includes transportation to and from the river. Water time is about 1 to 1.5 hours on the river depending on water levels. More

This trip was one of the highlights of our 2 weeks in Canada. Fantastic scenery, plenty of splashes without any unnecessary danger and well worth the cost with over an hour on the Athabasca River. Carson was the raft guide and from start to finish he was both hilarious and informative. Between quick witted humorous asides, he was able to... More

We enjoyed a raft trip on Athabasca river. The bus picked us up at hotel and drove us to launch point. Ponchos and life jackets donned we set off done river. Not too many bumps and Logan made the trip fun. Unfortunately it was very cold and raining so rather numb by the time we got back. Would recommend.

It was a great experience for first timers. Our guide Wyatt was funny, very friendly and knowledgeable. Keeps you awake throughout the journey. No complaints at all. Great experience. Super friendly staff. A must try when you're in Jasper. Price is worth it.
