Athabasca Mile 5

Family FriendlyValley ViewsShort Bus-Ride Next departure  in

Get a little wet and have a lot of fun on the Athabasca River! Travel with your small group to the put-in point and raft the Mile 5 section of the glacially-fed Athabasca River. This section of river is a great introduction to river rafting as it begins with an approximately 10-minute float before the Class II rapids start. Experience the gentle thrill of some bumps and splashes on your roughly two-hour excursion.
