For those who are interested in having a bit more adventure than gazing up at the natural wonders of Jasper National park!
Athabasca River – CLASS 2: Mile 5 Run (~ 9km) is gentle enough for all ages – provides family friendly, river trips. For more thrills, a trip along the river from Athabasca Falls (~15 km) through a narrow canyon offers plenty of thrills and spills!
Sunwapta River – CLASS 3: The Sunwapta River, which means ‘Turbulent Water’ in Stoney Indian, offers oppurtunity to raft in The Class III rapids. This is also the only class 3 located fully within Jasper National Park.
Fraser River – CLASS 3: Situated across the border in British Columbia, is another venue for those who wants to go for a longer trip. Starting from the valley of Mt Robson, a trip on the Fraser River carries you deep within steep canyon walls.
When can you go: ~ May to September.
