Soak up the rugged scenery of Jasper National Park and prepare to get wet on the Athabasca River’s Class II rapids. This guided whitewater float is a safe and comfortable way to enjoy this spectacular natural setting, with just enough adventure to keep you on your toes.

After being picked up from your hotel, strap on your life vest and hop into your sturdy, 25-foot (7 m) river raft for a breathtaking float down 10 miles (16 km) of the beautiful Athabasca River. With an expert, National Park-licensed guide handling the paddles, all you need to do is sit back and admire the distant mountains, wildlife-filled forests, and clear, flowing waters of the river.

Learn about the river’s history as a key spot on the fur trading route as you watch for elk, deer, and moose behind the trees and elegant eagles soaring through the sky. Your leisurely float is broken up with a few gentle whitewater rapids that will thrill first-time rafters and experienced boaters of any age.
