Jasper National Park forms the northern most component of the
Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks system. It has spectacular jagged mountains.
Jasper is known for its harsh terrain, strange landforms and abundant
wildlife. The town site of Jasper is located at the junction of the Icefield
Parkway and the Yellowhead Highway.
There is so much to do in this beautiful place. Skiing, hiking, white
water rafting, horseback riding and mountain biking are just a few of
the many activities available to you. The Jasper Park Information Center
is located right in the center of town and has lots of maps, information
and helpful advice on what to see and do.
Visit the Athabasca Falls to observe a spectacular waterfall. Jasper
vacations should include a ride on the Jasper Tramway, a rail system
that offers an amazing view of the Canadian Rockies. There are several
lakes in the neighborhood; two beautiful ones to visit are Pyramid
Lake and Patricia Lake. If skiing is your sport, check out
the Marmot Basin Ski Area which offers some of the best ski trails
in the country.
Don’t forget to bring a camera and capture some of the most amazing
views in the world. As wildlife is abundant in this region, you may have
the opportunity to photograph elks and bears. Often enough elks can be
spotted roaming through town. Please remember these are wild animals and
play it safe: don’t stand too close (at least 150 feet away) and
never feed the animals.
Ensure yourself a worry free holiday by purchasing travel insurance
before you leave home.
