A quaint little railway town by the Athabasca River in the heart of the majestic Rocky Mountains, Jasper is steeped in history and beauty. Explore the panoramic landscapes of the Jasper National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, dotted with fascinating waterfalls, canyons, lakes, and lush green forests and the world’s second-largest Dark Sky Preserve. Jasper National Park offers a wide spectrum of outdoor activities such as hiking, mountain biking, or skiing in the winter. If you would rather take it easy, then opt for leisurely walks and cozy picnics in the woodlands. Travelers can take a ride on the Jasper Tramway way to the summit of Whistlers Mountain to soak up panoramic views. And you simply can’t miss a cruise along the crystal-clear glacier fed waters of the Maligne Lake, one of the best boat cruises in Canada. Complete your Jasper experience with a tour of the Columbia Icefield where you can walk on the Athabasca Glacier.
