No experience is necessary to enjoy this 5-hour white water rafting tour in Jasper National Park. Tackle Class 3 rapids as you raft along Fraser River, admire the breathtaking scenery of the Canadian Rockies, and spot spawning salmon and other wildlife.
What to Expect
On this 5-hour tour you will experience rafting on Fraser River, among the spectacular landscape of the Rocky Mountains. From downtown Jasper in the heart of Jasper National Park you will be transported to the base of the highest mountain in the Canadian Rockies for the best rafting around.
Starting in the shadows of Mount Robson, the Canadian Rockies highest mountain, you will get changed in the indoor changing rooms and be given detailed instructions for paddling and safety. Once on the river you will travel about 9 miles downriver, encountering fun splashy rapids along with large Class 3 white water.
A portage around Rearguard Falls allows you to stretch your legs and enjoy the view before continuing on to the lower canyon section of the Fraser River. This is some of the best white water that Western Canada has to offer.
Once through the white water sections you will have a short float, offering a chance for dip in the river and a great opportunity to see spawning salmon and other wildlife such as bald eagles and bears. The bus will meet you to transport you back to the river base, where you can change your clothes and unwind before boarding the bus back to the town of Jasper.
