The Athabasca Falls trip is probably our most scenic. After a 30-minute bus drive from town guests are suited up in our wetsuit gear. After a safety talk there is a 5-minute portage to the river. This river trip starts with a bang. Once out in the main current, the first set of rapids is only seconds way. Once these rapids have soaked everyone in the raft, the rafters find themselves in a canyon. For the next 30-minutes there are no trails or roads within sight and it is just the river and you. The canyon ends with another set of rapids and spectacular views of the Athabasca River valley. Once back at the highway it is a 20 minutes float to the take out. River time is approximately 1 hour 20 minutes and round trip time is 3 hours.
All trips are in 6-8 person-guided rafts. We raft rain or shine. The season for this section is from early June until late August.
