White water rafting adventures in Jasper National Park


There are numerous mountain rivers in Jasper National Park that offer some of the best whitewater rafting in western Canada. These trips offer a wide spectrum of opportunities for people of all ages and abilities. 

Athabasca River

If you are looking for an easy introduction to rafting or a family-friendly trip than the Athabasca River is a good choice. Designated as a Canadian Heritage River because of its scenic beauty and history of fur trade exploration, the Atha-B is a river that all can enjoy. Under your guide's expert direction you will travel in 6 to 10 passenger, self-bailing rafts through calm stretches and small but lively rapids. 

The Canyon Run starts at the base of Athabasca falls and plunges through numerous rapids surrounded by high canyon walls. After the canyon rafters enjoy wide open views as we paddle through the scenic Athabasca valley to our take out. 

There are also paddle assist trips on two Class III rivers: The Sunwapta River and the Fraser River. All rivers are unpredictable, with water levels fluctuating according to season and weather. These two great rivers are both located within a one hour drive of Jasper. Each day throughout the season you can raft either the Fraser or Sunwapta River. Whichever river offers the best ride on any particular day, is the river you raft that day. 

Sunwapta River

Sunwapta' is the Stoney Indian term for 'turbulent river' and this river lives up to its name. With a steep gradient and numerous rapids this is Jasper's wild water rollercoaster ride. The only class 3 located fully within Jasper National Park it offers spectacular scenery and good wildlife opportunities. Don't miss the high water mid-June to late July! 

Fraser River

From our launching point in the shadow of the Mt. Robson, the "Mighty Fraser" serves up turbulent rapids and swirling eddies bound to soak every rafter! After a short portage around thundering Rearguard Falls we continue down the river, splashing through large rapids dwarfed by steep canyon walls. This trip provides great opportunities to spot wildlife and seasonal spawning salmon.
