This trip starts at the base of Athabasca Falls and plunges through numerous rapids surrounded by high canyon walls. After the canyon stretch, rafters enjoy expansive views of the Athabasca Valley to the take-out. This is the ultimate family adventure — fun for adults and children alike.

Shuttle Bus from Jasper to Maligne Lake
This shuttle primarily caters to those embarking on a multi-day backcountry hike along the Skyline Trail by providing one-way transportation between trailheads.
If you are hiking the trail South to North (recommended), you will start your hike at Maligne Lake. We suggest parking your vehicle at the North Skyline/Signal Mountain Trailhead, which would be the endpoint of your hike. Our shuttle can then collect you at 9:15 am and transport you to Maligne Lake, where you can begin your hike. Your car will be waiting when you finish.
For those hiking the trail in reverse, we suggest parking your vehicle at Maligne Lake (South Trailhead), which will be the ending point of your hike. Our shuttle would collect you at 10 am and transport you to North Skyline/Signal Mountain Trailhead, where you can begin your hike. Your car will be waiting when you finish.
For those without a vehicle, pick-up is available from the Two Brothers Totem Pole, 416 Connaught Drive, Jasper. If you are planning on hiking elsewhere in the valley, pick-up or drop-off is also available at Watchtower or Jacques Lake Trailheads.
