We had nie rafting trip here, and it was extremely nice. Enjoyed swimming in the river with wetsuits on, and just flowing with the river. Water is cold, but nice and clean. And the views <3

Great views, but being from the Ottawa River-area, water not fast enough for us!! Way fun nonetheless.

We beheld one of the most amazing sights as we stood as a family that day at the Athbascar Falls in Jasper.

Around every turn is a more gorgeous view. The water is so turquoise, glacier-cold...the rafting looked like a must-do for next time!!

We stayed next to the river and got to walk along it by the falls and at our hotel. It has beautiful views and the glacier water is something to see.

As a family did this one morning at the intermediate level but would do more challenging rapids next time! Pick up was right from our Alpine Village. Staff were funny and enthusiastic...Great action shots offered afterwards! Nice way to see the area from the river!

Beautiful green water that is very majestic! Runs slow in some spots and very fast in others. Mesmerizing...

Right off the road, this 30 min stop is not to be missed. Unbelievable force of water in river carving big canyons and tremendous falls. You can walk through areas where water previously flowed, now dry. Interesting and beautiful.
