This trip starts at the base of Athabasca Falls and plunges through numerous rapids with high canyon walls on each side. After the canyon stretch, rafters enjoy the wide open views of the scenic Athabasca Valley to our take out.

Class 3 Sunwapta River (4 hours)

'Sunwapta' is the Stoney Indian term for ‘turbulent river’ and this river lives up to its name. With a steep gradient and numerous rapids this is Jasper's wild water rollercoaster ride. The only class 3 located fully within Jasper National Park it offers spectacular scenery and good wildlife opportunities. Don’t miss the high water mid-June to late July!

Class 3+ Fraser River (5 hours)

From our launching point in the shadow of the Mt. Robson, the "Mighty Fraser" serves up turbulent rapids and swirling eddies bound to soak every rafter! After a short portage around thundering Rearguard Falls we continue down the river, splashing through large rapids dwarfed by steep canyon walls. This trip provides great opportunities to spot wildlife and seasonal spawning salmon.
