      Awesome!
      Our guide, Sam, was awesome-fun, as excited as we were when wildlife made their appearances. Sam was also very knowledgeable. Beautiful area to explore.

      Inexperienced rafters
      As inexperienced rafters, our guide, Francois, was terrific in allaying our concerns and going gently over the rapids. The scenery was beautiful. Stephen, the bus driver/assistant was also very accommodating. Once we were comfortable on the river, we wished the trip was longer!

      Thanks Pascal!! Great tour guide
      Our tour guide Pascal was awesome! Lots of local insight and tips, stories, history, etc. The cruise to Spirit Island was a favorite part of the trip. Got to see a HUGE elk, baby bald eagles on nest, deer, etc. Wish we could have seen bear and moose, but they were elusive. :( Rest of trip was terrific!

      A great evening wildlife tour
      Kelli was a very informative and interesting tour guide. Her passion for the park and its wildlife was obvious. We saw lots of wildlife including a black bear with 2 cubs, elk, deer, marmot, osprey and 2 young bald eagles in their nest. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable tour and well worth the money.

      Excellent service and memorable trip
      This tour was very interesting, especially for a family. Our tour guide, Kelly, told us meaningful information, like the stories of the land. We learned lots about bears from her and how to defend ourselves if we are near one which was very fun to hear about. Kelly was also very accommodating by offering us cold water bottles. She showed us different types of antlers as well. During the bus rides, we were allowed to quickly stop and take photos of wildlife. The trip was memorable ( written by Teenager)

      Surprisingly awesome!
      We did this tour and I was slightly skeptical that we would actually see anything. Boy was I wrong. The tour was AMAZING. Sam was our guide and was incredibly knowledgeable and charismatic. My family of four (2 children 11 and 7) enjoyed the entire trip. We saw a mama black bear and two cubs, multiple elk and bull elk and some calves, 2 moose, a white tailed buck, and two immature bald eagles. Sam even let us try buffalo berries which my kids thought was great. Thank you for such an amazing tour!

      Amazing day!
      The guide picked us up near our camp ground. He was really knowledgeable, attentive and humble. It was a full day of waterfalls, hiking and wildlife. Generous amounts of time—never felt rushed. Saw marmots, pika, baby bald eagles, mamma moose and baby. Great food at Maligne Lake! Such a great day!

      Excellent trip!
      Jake, our guide, was very passionate about the area and wildlife which led to a very informative and enjoyable tour. He was able to deliver the information in a way that was easily understandable although we’re not so sure about his jokes! It was a little too hot to see much wildlife but, with Jake’s recommendations, we returned late evening and saw everything apart from bear! Both Liam and Sam on the boat were excellent as well, demonstrating the same passion and knowledge. Thoroughly recommend!

    We had an amazing time, the guides were very friendly, the river was beautiful and some of the rapids were pretty big, making for an exhilarating experience! Definitely got wet/soaked, but the wetsuits and kit provided kept us warm enough. Take snacks and dry clothes for the drive back!

    This was great fun. The guides were a good laugh and everything was very safe. The rafting was suitable for beginners but the guides adjusted it slightly on experience and skill level. We did a nice little surf as most in our boat knew what they did. Good fun but you really don’t need any experience to do this. I would really recommend this tour.

    My daughter and I had a unforgettable experience rafting! From start to finish this trip was completely organized. We also got to see Mt. Robson on a crystal clear day making this venture extra special. Our guide, Brody, was experienced, knowledgeable and entertaining. I highly recommend this excursion.

    On a rainy day in Jasper National Park our family of three decided to call Maligne Adventures for a white water rafting experience… we’d get wet anyway so why not doing that with style!

    We booked their level 3+ Mighty Frazer River package and before soon we were on a converted school bus en route towards our starting point close to Mount Robson. Safety briefing first, paddles up for photos and off we go…

    Fortune favours the brave - the sun came out just as we started paddling down the river!

    Powerful white waters, paddling team work and surprising splashes while feeling safe at all times. Amazing experience, fun guides and super photographer - great trip! Definitely recommended!

    We took the morning Fraser River Rafting Trip on June 19th. The staff was outstanding and the vehicles taking us to and from the river were clean and well ventilated. Our time on the river was great, the river was running fast and the multiple rapid sets were safe and exciting to traverse. A couple of observations that kept us from giving this tour a 5 were; 1) this was a 5 hour tour of which we probably spent an 1hr and 15 minutes on the water while we spent 2 ½ hrs getting to and from launch site, 2) we spent 30 minutes transporting raft around falls, and 3) another 45 minutes waiting for return bus as it brought out for the folks for the afternoon rafting trip. Highly recommend you bring snacks and a drink with you because there is no access to vending machines etc.

    I had SUCH A BLAST with Maligne Adventures on the Fraser River. It was a gorgeous drive out to the launch site, and it brings you out into the completely different ecosystem of British Columbia. The bus driver guide was incredibly knowledgeable about the area (I forgot his name sorry!) And gave us lots of info about the differences between Jasper National Park and Mount Robson Provincial Park. I have been on many different raft trips with different companies and never before have I learned so much while not even on the raft!! When we got there, we met up with the other guides that would take us onto the river itself. Nate and Mike were our raft guides for the day and they were so knowledgable and fantastic! We got suited up in many more layers than I had had for any other rivers I'd rafted on, and it really helped ensure we stayed as warm as possible. We then loaded onto a school bus that was towing the rafts, with our driver Adam, who was also super knowledgeable! We went down to the boat launch, and had a very thorough safety meeting before even entering the raft. It was ensured that everyone understood fully, and we safely went into the water. They gave me the option to wear my glasses under my helmet but I figured that even if I had my glasses that they would get covered by water anyways, so I decided to leave them. THIS MADE IT SO MUCH MORE FUN I'M NOT GONNA LIE! I am blind as a bat but I just stayed one row into the raft, and had a blast on Mike's raft, and he made sure we were all secure and safe the entire way. It was a super fun time with lots of amazing waves to hit, and moments to catch your breath in between. Overall I was extremely impressed, and I will certainly be coming back!!
