We booked a rafting trip for our family of six. Parents and four kids ages 8 to 16 on the 5 mile run on the Athabasca river. Our guide was Tim and he was helpful, full of information and very good with the kids. We could not have asked for a better guide. The raft ride was a perfect combination of float and rapids for our first time out. It only made us hungry for more though! The kids had a chance to jump in the river for a quick swim in the river as well, the scenery was incredible and Tim had all the answers to our many questions about wildlife and the area. You are provided with wet suits (including booties) and life jackets. Instruction on safety is done before you get in the river, the paddling is not too much for young children and it is a whole lot of fun!
Our bus driver doubled as the photographer and took some incredible photos! The $25 price for the cd was reasonable and we bought it. We can hardly wait to go back!
