Jasper is like a breath of fresh cool mountain air – crisp and invigorating, yet reassuringly calm.
Here, you’re free to let the rhythm of nature’s timeless song wash over you as surely as the waters of mighty Sunwapta Falls plunge into the canyon below. Jasper is also the gateway to adventure , where you are as likely to share a silent morning with grazing elk as you are with fellow human beings.
In summer, warm weather and sunny skies invite your whole family to explore. Jasper always offers something rewarding to discover, an adventure and experiences to remember. Gently float in an oar-powered raft under a cobalt blue sky. Take a wild, wet ride down a roaring whitewater river section with massive peaks and endless evergreen forests lining the riverbank where elk often come down to drink.
Hike, horseback ride or mountain bike along gentle pine carpeted paths and rugged trails that weave around glacier-draped summits and through green alpine meadows. Paddle across emerald lakes in search of ancient romantic legends. And awaken each morning to crisp alpine air and the tangy scent of evergreens.
Jasper National Park transforms into a wintery paradise when the snow falls and the forests, valleys and slopes are blanketed in fresh fluffy white powder. Snowshoe through silent woods on a sparkling winter’s morning amid softly falling snow. Weave through white forest glades on a wide choice of groomed and natural backcountry and Nordic skiing trails.
