Jasper Canada

The highlight of Jasper tourism is its proximity to Jasper National Park. From skiing on powdery slopes to rafting on glacial lakes, you’ll be hard-pressed to find the time to squeeze in all the activities that this Canadian mountain town has to offer.

Jasper is a great starting point for adventures in and around the UNESCO-listed Jasper National Park area. A drive down the Icefields Parkway will give you dramatic views of the Canadian Rockies, piercing blue lakes and endless icefields. Along the way, consider stopping at Columbia Icefield Skywalk, a glass viewing platform hovering 230 metres above ground. For something a little less daring, you’ll find The Jasper SkyTram to be a suitable option. The entire downtown area and the snowy slopes of Whistlers Mountain will spread out below you as you ride this aerial tramway. From the top, look up to the dark skies for a chance to spot all kinds of celestial bodies and maybe even the northern lights.

Whether it's skiing, hiking or kayaking you're after, you’ll find a spot to try it here in Jasper. Groomed trails suitable for snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and snowboarding criss-cross the valleys and mountains around this alpine town. You can even skate on frozen lakes or climb sheer vertical sheets of ice in narrow canyons. Hikers and bikers will enjoy exploring paths winding past lakes, waterfalls, lush meadows and soaring peaks. The region is rich in wildlife, so bear, moose, caribou and elk sightings are common too.
