Overview

Description

"Just a few minutes drive from the town of Jasper, Alberta, there's a new adventure waiting for you and your family. A section of the Athabasca River known as the Mile 5 is the perfect introduction to the sport of white water rafting. With a mix of calm Class I water, and beginner Class II rapids, is suitable for novice rafters of all ages! Additionally, you will be rafting one of the area's most historic sections of river. As you raft along the border of Treaty 6 and Treaty 8 lands, you will have an opportunity to learn about the various Indigenous Peoples who inhabited what we now call Jasper National Park throughout history, most recently the Cree and Stoney-Nakoda. The Mile 5 also has the importance of being one of the last sections of river before Athabasca Pass, a northern route through the Rocky Mountains, allowing the 19th Century fur trade to expand further west."
