Athabasca River Scenic Float Trip

Athabasca River Scenic Float Trip

Join the fun on the Athabasca River for a unique perspective of Jasper National Park. Up to 2.5-hour round trip passes through many small sets of rapids and calm stretches, which allows your National Park licensed guide to point out the natural and human history of Jasper. This float trip is safe for the whole family, from toddlers and grandparents to swimmers and non-swimmers alike.

Rivers are rated on a scale of one to six. Class 1 is considered to be calm moving water while a class 6 would be equivalent to Niagara Falls. The section of the Athabasca River that this tour rafts on is rated a Class 2; meaning that there are some sections with rapids, which may get your backside wet.
