Enjoy the remarkable scenery of the Athabasca Valley, near Jasper, and learn about the festinating history of this designated Canadian Heritage River on this delightful float trip. Using specially designed oar-powered rafts, your guide will steer you along the same route that fur traders would have used two centuries ago. You will navigate several easy sets of rapids and gently float along the calm stretches in between, keeping an eye for wildlife along the banks – elk, mountain sheep and deer are frequently seen, and sometime bears and coyotes are also spotted. This is a relaxing trip designed for the whole family, and takes about two and a half hours from start to finish.
