Athabasca River is the longest river in Alberta after Peace River (from BC to Alberta). The source of the river is in Jasper National Park, in the Canadian Rockies. We saw only a part of this 1231 km long river. In some places, it's quite a beauty with the Rockies on the background

We drove down 93A and the Athabasca River was along side the road. It is a clear river that has many twist and turns. You won't need to stop to see this as it runs along side the highway.

First time for me to experience a river raft ride. Was hesitant because of the rapids, but this experience was just right for me ((72 year old, female). The guides were experienced and thorough in assuring our safety; we were suited with life vests and ponchos,then entering and exiting the float was demonstrated and assisted and safety provisions were explained in the boat too. Most the 10 mile trip along the Athabasca River was leisurely and calm with a few easy sets of rapids in which the guide warned us to hold on and brace ourselves. It was a comfortable ride, with the guide narrating along the way, information about the views and places. We even saw some deer along the river shoreline. It is important for one to research the different offerings of raft rides and the classes of rapids on those rides before making a reservation to participate. This excursion offered by Globus was just right for me!

We stayed at a wonderful cabin right along the Athabasca River. A beautiful site to wake up to in the morning and walk along its overflowing banks in the evening.

This major river was in flood when we were there. Each tributary has a different colour, but the overall river is brown with the spring runoff. The river is in view almost anywhere once goes in the national park.

We took the raft ride down the Athabasca River. I would not recommend it for October. Our raft handler was wonderful, but we were frozen. Our tour guide met us at the other side with warm towels, but they didn't stay warm long. Scenery was nice, rapids were strong enough for a thrill and a splash.

wonderful place that surprises you each time. Impressive river for walking, picnicking, fishing, meet people, relax and be surprised every time. Impressive falls, beaches, curves, sometimes wide and sometimes narrow, deep or shallow, and creates impressive narrow canyons.

We loved rafting the Athabasca River, very friendly and competent guides, even the trip there in the old school bus was a treat. Excellent experience however I suggest you choose the more expensive of the 2 rides (The Canyon) as you get a lot more value and experience. A must do in Jasper.

Quick stop off the highway on our way up to jasper. It’s a large lake and the views of the mountains are beautiful. It’s a very quick stop so a must do.
