We had our own guide, which was lovely. Athabasca river is beautiful, wish it could have been longer. Not thrilling but it’s good experience for first timers. This was rated as classII. I would definitely try class III next time.

We had a great time with this professionally run rafting tour. Couldn’t have felt safer even when we took a dunk in the glacial water of the Athabasca river. Our daughters loved it. Shout out to Byron who looked after us really well!
