Overview

Starting at the base of the Athabasca Falls, you'll raft 15 km down the majestic Athabasca Valley. This 3-hour round trip provides spectacular canyon scenery that combined with moderate rapids, make this an adventure trip ideal for the whole family.
After a 30-minute bus drive from town, you'll be suited up in your rafting gear. Prior to departure on the river, your guides will provide a safety talk. All 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. 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. For the next 30-minutes, there are no trails or roads next to the river. It is just you and the river.
The canyon ends with another set of rapids and amazing views of the Athabasca River valley. Once back on the highway, it is about 20 minutes to the townsite. There are many sections of rapids, as well as a flat section to enjoy and learn about the natural surroundings. All trips are in 8 person-guided rafts.
This rafting trip is great for all levels and operates rain or shine. You'll be provided with a wetsuit, booties, paddle jacket and life jacket.  A towel, dry set of clothes, a snack and water may be left in the bus for after your trip. Wear shorts or a bathing suit under your wetsuit. Please do not bring valuables on the bus. Your driver will be taking photos at several locations along the river so there’s no need for your camera or phone on the river. Pictures will be ready for purchase on a memory stick at the end of your adventure.
