What to Expect when Rafting Athabasca River Mile 5 in Jasper

After meeting your river rafting guide in the town of Jasper, you will head 8 km south of Jasper to the raft put-in point. After suiting up in clean rafting gear and receiving a safety talk, you start heading down the river. The first Athabasca river rafting section begins with about a 10-minute float. This allows river paddlers time to feel comfortable in the raft, experience the river environment and take in the 360-degree Jasper Park mountain view. After this short river float, the grade 2 rapids begin. Grade 2 is enough to get everyone who wants to get wet, but it is unlikely anyone will go for an unexpected swim. After 4 or 5 sections of river rapids, the Miette River joins the Athabasca, highlighting the color difference between a rain and snow fed river and a glacier fed river. The rafting trip ends just around the corner at Old Fort Point. After getting out of your rafting wet gear, it is a 3 km drive back to Jasper. All Athabasca river rafting trips are in 8 person-guided rafts. Rain or shine, the Mile 5 Rafting trip is great for ages 5-95. Book Rafting Athabasca River Mile 5
