Athabasca River Mile 5

This two hour round trip (~one hour on the water ) is our most popular trip, and has the longest season, early May to late September. Your adventure begins with a 10 minute float followed by Class II rapids. Class II is an excellent introduction to white water as it offers a mix of splashy thrills, and calm floats.

Suitable for ages 5 and up.

For groups larger than 8 people, please contact us before booking.

    The Athabasca River is a Canadian Heritage River, originating 100 km south of Jasper from the glaciers of the Columbia Icefield - the largest icefield in North America. You'll meet in the town of Jasper in the RV Parking lot adjacent to the Jasper Home Building Centre.
    You'll then travel 8 km south of town to the put in point.
    After suiting up in clean wetsuits and a safety talk, you'll head down the river. The section begins with a 10-minute float. This allows the paddler time to feel comfortable in the raft, experience the river environment and take in the 360-degree Mountain View. After this short float, the grade 2 rapids begin - great splashes for an introductory whitewater trip.
    After four or five sections of rapids, the Miette River joins the Athabasca, highlighting the colour difference between a rain and snow fed river and a glacier fed river.
    All necessary equipment is provided. Rain or shine, this trip is great for ages 5 to 95.
