This fun and easy rafting trip will take you down the Athabasca River, a designated Canadian Heritage River. A Jasper National Park licensed guide will provide commentary on the human and natural history of Jasper while navigating along the same route used by the fur traders over 2 centuries ago.
Lifejackets and the specially designed, 7-metre oar-powered rafts offer a safe and comfortable ride through several small, easy sets of rapids and calm stretches that any first-time rafter will enjoy. The guides do all the rowing while the group sits back and enjoys the ride and spectacular scenery.
There is a chance of seeing various wildlife including elk, deer, moose, coyotes, wolves, eagles, ospreys, mountain sheep and bears.
