Grand Rapids Wilderness Adventures - your history in the making...

For over 20 years, GRWA has been providing safe, exciting, one-of-a-kind wilderness adventures on the Athabasca River for rock stars, ministers, paleontologists, geologists, history buffs, fisherman, prospectors, paddlers, jet boaters, snowmobilers and wilderness adventure seekers just like yourselves. We have also had the privilege of working with many prestigious organizations such as the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology, Alberta Parks, Trans-Canada Trails, and Alberta TrailNet, just to name a few. GRWA was also honored to be chosen by Travel Alberta to be showcased in their Alberta Stories video productions, on Travel Alberta’s youtube site.  

Our back country lodge is accessible by water or float plane only, which ensures a very limited number of visitors per year, enhancing a truly remote wilderness experience. Our well maintained log cabin accommodations boast of comfortable beds, wood stoves, propane cookstoves, dining tables, solar power, hi-speed internet, as well as separate shower facilities. Enjoy great home cooked meals in a relaxed setting within our central dining area or the attached screened-in deck overlooking the river. Explore the hiking trails, pan for gold, or drop your hook in the great fishing hole located within walking distance from the lodge, in hopes of catching some of the big walleye and northern pike that stack up at the confluence of the House and Athabasca Rivers. And of course, not to be missed, is a full day excursion to the Grand Rapids. Relax with stories and laughs shared around the fire pit at the end of an exhilarating day.
