What people are saying about Jasper
We had a very nice tour with Kelly. We started with a coyote with three pups. Then we saw Stumpy, a three legged bear. They think he is hit by a train. Later we saw a bald eagle, mountain goats and elk. On the way back a black bear looking for bugs under stones. And close to the village a brown collored black bear. Kelly was very informative and a good driver. I can recommand this tour!! We did the evening tour. I think in the evening there is more chance to see wild life.
We were a group of 7 adults and 6 children (ages 4 to 8). Everyone had a terrific time and loved the whole experience. The advantages of being divided into 8 person rafts are endless. Everyone got to be involved and participate in the thrills of rafting. Other companies I have used use bigger rafts and the experience is muted compared to our this trip. I highly recommend this experience and the Jasper Rafting Adventures company. Thank you all for being such pros!!
My wife was concerned about the safety of this trip. The crew made sure we had fun, we ran some rapids and my wife became more comfortable being on the raft. She wants to do another one, one that is a little rougher. Thanks for taking the time to ensure we had fun, felt safe and enjoyed the experience. Great trip for newbies and families.
Jasper foodie tour was great. We learned a lot of history about Jasper, the community, it’s people, lifestyle, trains, climate. AnD we visited 4 pubs/Restsurants, and enjoyed tasting the speciality of the house, paired with a yummy beer, wine and vodka. Enjoyed every moment and would thoroughly recommend!!! Thanks Estelle.
Great tour to do on your own or with others. Interesting guide and all the necessities are included such as transport, helmets, warm boots ( if you need them) and ice cleats. Wonderful way to explore Jasper trails in the winter.
