Dip your toes in turquoise lakes, get lost in fairytale forests, climb glacial peaks and stroll though flower-filled meadows. Whichever way you choose to explore, be it on foot, bike, boat or horseback, the natural wonders of Jasper National Park will never fail to impress. It’s the type of scenery you see in travel brochures and on postcards, but trust us when we say that nothing quite compares to experiencing it for yourself.
Together with Banff, Jasper National Park is part of the Canadian Rocky Mountain UNESCO World Heritage site. Here, Mother Nature rules and awe-inspiring vistas await around every corner. A network of scenic trails snake through the park, taking you past emerald lakes, crashing waterfalls and rugged peaks. Through these stunning landscapes roam all sorts of fascinating wildlife, including moose, elk, wolves, foxes and bears, to name just a few.
It’s true that Jasper is one of Canada’s most wild and untamed national parks, but it still has its fair share of crowd-drawing attractions. Miette Hot Springs draws visitors from far and wide to bathe in the mineral-rich waters, while the ice-cold waterfalls and sheer drops of the Maligne Canyon have long captured the interest of hikers and photographers.
Beside the main tourist hotspots, there are plenty of opportunities to escape the well-trodden routes and find some peace and solitude. Whether you’re gazing out across a glass-like lake, staring up at the star-strewn night sky or watching a grizzly bear fishing in a waterfall, make sure you spare some time in your jam-packed itinerary to stop and appreciate these unmissable moments.
From the jaw-dropping train views to the adrenaline-pumping activities, the wild wonderland of Jasper National Park will captivate you from moment you arrive.
Bathe in mineral-rich hot springs, marvel at mirror-like lakes and explore age-old canyons. Hike, bike and canoe your way across the pristine landscapes and discover some of Canada’s most fascinating wildlife.
