Canoeing Athabasca River

Explore the waterways and glacial fed lakes of Jasper.

Athabas­ca riv­er is one of the fur trad­ing routes used by the voy­agers of yes­ter­day. Dis­cov­er the his­toric routes by tak­ing a tour on the Athabas­ca. There are raft­ing and canoe out­fit­ters that can guide you down some of the pris­tine wilder­ness that Jasper got to offer.

Get back to nature on your own if you have the courage to tack­le the rapids and obsta­cles that awaits you. You can pick-up some maps when you get into town at the Parks office and choose an adven­ture that suits you.
