The Athabasca River Falls Run starts at the base of the Athabasca Falls. Raft 15 kilometers down the majestic Athabasca Valley in Jasper National Park. This 3-hour round trip provides spectacular canyon scenery that combined with moderate rapids make this an adventure ideal for the whole family. All trips are in 8 person guided rafts.
Challenge yourself to a healthy dose of adrenaline while paddling amongst the Rocky Mountain giants. Keep yours eyes peeled for the wildlife you might see along the way.
After a 30-minute bus drive from town, you'll suit up in your rafting gear. Your safety is always a main concern so prior to departure on the river, your guides will provide a safety talk. All our guides are trained in First Aid, CPR and are federally licensed. After the safety talk there is a 5-minute portage down a road (built for Marilyn Monroe!) to the river.
The river trip starts with a bang. Starting at the base of the spectacular Athabasca Falls, you'll raft 15 kilometers down the majestic Athabasca Valley. Once out in the main current, the first set of rapids is only seconds’ way. Once these rapids have soaked everyone in the raft, you'll find yourself in a spectacular canyon only seen from the river.
