Full description
On this 5-hour tour you will experience rafting on Fraser River, among the spectacular landscape of the Rocky Mountains. From downtown Jasper in the heart of Jasper National Park you will be transported to the base of the highest mountain in the Canadian Rockies for the best rafting around.

Starting in the shadows of Mount Robson, the Canadian Rockies highest mountain, you will get changed in the indoor changing rooms and be given detailed instructions for paddling and safety. Once on the river you will travel about 9 miles downriver, encountering fun splashy rapids along with large Class 3 white water.

A portage around Rearguard Falls allows you to stretch your legs and enjoy the view before continuing on to the lower canyon section of the Fraser River. This is some of the best white water that Western Canada has to offer.

Once through the white water sections you will have a short float, offering a chance for dip in the river and a great opportunity to see spawning salmon and other wildlife such as bald eagles and bears. The bus will meet you to transport you back to the river base, where you can change your clothes and unwind before boarding the bus back to the town of Jasper.

Great fun!

I took my boyfriend with me, and it was fantastic. Neither of us had any experience with white water, so we found it to be great fun. However, like other reviewers say - it's not actually a 5 hour trip on the water, it's more so 1 hour to drive to B.C., 1 hour to drive back to Jasper, and another hour to talk about safety and wait for people to change etc. Despite this, I was wiped after and really enjoyed it. If you are debating on whether or not to go, do it!

Great trip on the Fraser River, with a great guide, who spread a good mood from the first second :) We got all the neoprene suits that we were very happy about, at 3 degrees water temperature. We were also allowed to jump into the water and go swimming.

Guides top, tour course gigantic, fun 10 points

The rafting was well organized and the guides very confident in their field. The tour was breathtakingly beautiful with some rapids and a nice view of the waterfall. Overall a smooth 10! Any time.
