Jasper is a charming mountain village surrounded by dense forest and glacial peaks, and boasts many scenic highlights. It is a laid-back alpine community, filled with quaint shops, restaurants and cafes. Established in 1907, Jasper National Park is the largest in the Canadian Rockies, boasting 10,878 square kilometres of mountain wilderness. Internationally renowned for its superb backcountry trail system, hikers flock to the park to create their own adventures. It is also home to some of North America’s most treasured wildlife, with healthy populations of grizzly bears, moose, caribou and wolves calling it home. We suggest you take a tram ride up Whistler’s Mountain for awe-inspiring views and visit Maligne Lake, one of the most photographed lakes in the world, for a relaxing boat excursion. We also suggest a tour out to Icefield’s Parkway for an amazing Ice Explorer ride on the Athabasca Glacier.
