After a short bus journey we arrived at our raft 16km out of Jasper along the Athabasca River. Our raft guide was Mark,what a great guy he turned out to be. He had a superb balance between humour and insight. He chatted about the landscape, the geology and the wildlife, in between keeping us amused. He enjoyed the questions and his answers were well judged. We had a glorious time drifting down the river under a clear blue sky. If you want a delightful side trip when in Jasper look no further than this. Organisation was perfect and all the staff helpful and appearing to be totally stress free. We loved it. It was ideal for all ages.

This experienced company offered us a fabulous 16km trip down the Athabasca River, viewing stunning scenery in amazing weather. VERY SPECIAL mention for and thanks to MARK our guide and raft pilot. His confidence, knowledge and sense of humour were just spot on. Jasper, this river, this trip and Mark were just made for each other .

Jasper Raft Tours was a great experience and a tour I'll remember forever. The guide, Rob, was perfect. He explained so many sights to us and he was full of knowledge about the area. He was also really funny and made the trip even better. At first I had thought that the price was a little steep, but after the tour, I'm sure it's worth more than what it costs. I'd recommend this to anyone and everyone, as it's gentle for the whole family, but exciting too. 5*

Great staff, Just kids but very knowledgeable and accommodating. Had a 7 year old and two others they had a ball on the type 2 run. Very fun.

We'd had a splendid day early morning walk at Lake Louise with perfectly timed lifting of mist to reveal views, fun up on Athabasca glacier, so what better way of arriving at Jasper than by raft.

While some continued by coach, we fortunate ones opted for a float downriver and all agreed it was one of the highlights of our Canadian visit. You just sit back, relax and be entertained by the stories and info from your guide. You'll probably end up with a wet bottom but, hey, it's part of the fun.

If you only do one trip in the area, make it this one. Enjoy
