What to expect
Make your way to a departure point in downtown Jasper, where you’ll board a bus for the 30-minute trip to Athabasca Falls. Wear a swimsuit under your clothes for a quick change to a wetsuit, then join the river guide for a briefing on rafting technique and safety. Grab a paddle and climb into a six passenger white water raft, then leave the shore with the thundering sounds of Athabasca Falls just behind you. The guide will steer you into the current as you paddle into a channel between the high rock walls of Athabasca Canyon. You’ll take on a series of fun, exciting Class II rapids, then the river will flatten out for the relaxing final stretch. After roughly 1.5 hours on the water, the guide will steer you back to shore for the return trip to Jasper, where this tour concludes. Please note: wetsuits, neoprene booties, and paddle jackets will be provided, as you’re sure to get wet while splashing through the rapids. Wear a swimsuit and bring dry clothes and a towel, as well as wool socks and a warm, post-paddle jacket for cooler days.

Exciting and Leaving you wanting to do it again!
Jul 2021
This was an awesome adventure if you are hesitant about rafting! It has a few fast rapids to give you that little excitement. The guides are very knowledgeable of the river and can navigate quite easily while going down the river and into the rapids. The guides were entertaining which made for an awesome experience! I highly recommend this run if its your first time rafting. You will definitely want to do it again!

Best Fun in Jasper
Jul 2021 • Family
From the pick up to the drop off it was a flawless and fun adventure.
The team was super entertaining and engaging answering questions as best as they can about the region, the lake, their experiences on the lake while rafting etc. My husband, 8 year olds daughter and I were on Dan’s boat and he made it as safe but as fun as possible for her. His instructions were clear for paddling and gave us the best splashed results. The Bus driver/Photographer was amazing and captured some of the best shots we will cherish for a very long time as a family.
Wish there were more rapids but even the smooth parts were fun because of just how beautiful the surrounding scenery was.

Amazing and Enjoyable
Jun 2021 • Family
We really enjoyed this trip. The rafting experience was just awesome. This is a must do trip in Jasper. Maligne Rafting Adventures is a great company to do rafting with. The staff was very friendly, informative, and very interactive. All the staff were really good and amazing. Special mention to Levi, Jesse, and Morgan for accompanying and guiding us on the raft, and for making this a great, interactive, enjoyable, and friendly trip. We did the Athabasca Falls Canyon Run in the morning. The water did not disappoint! Looking forward to do the other rafting packages offered by Maligne Rafting Adventures. High recommend this company!

Apprehensive Rafters before, by the end they can't wait to go again.
Jun 2021 • Family
This was a great family experience, we had two apprehensive riders at the beginning and this was perfect for them to get their first white-water rafting experience. During the journey we saw a black bear swim across the river, beautiful scenery of the river with the Mountains in the back ground. The guide was super knowledgeable of the local area and made us feel safe and in capable hands. I highly recommend this adventure for all!!!

Wonderful way to enjoy the Rockies
Jun 2021 • Family
I had a fantastic day on the Athabasca river with my family and friends. The rafting tour is accessible to all (kids age 7 to 13) and they all got a blast getting splashed by the big waves. We felt super safe and the staff was just amazing. Thank you for the amazing experience.

Great trip!
The views were amazing and the rapids were perfect for our 10 year old who was a bit apprehensive about a rafting trip. We felt like we were in good hands with our guide who also provided information about all of the sights we were seeing. I highly recommend this trip for families with school aged children.
