Jasper National Park: Discover Jasper®
Welcome to Jasper!Mountains are Jasper's calling card. Deep in the Alberta Rockies, peaks crown the horizon in every direction. The vast majority are pristine and will remain that way, preserved under the aegis of Canada's national parks system. Mountain sheep, bears, wolves, elk and mountain goats have a secure home here, and can often be seen when simply driving down the road. To improve the chance of spotting a Grizzly bear, adventure seekers can opt for a hiking tour or explore the surrounding wilderness on horseback. But even from inside the car, the mountain views are spectacular. In particular, the road south of Jasper to Lake Louise is renowned for its breathtaking vistas. About halfway down, motorists often stop at the Columbia Icefield to view a still mighty but receding glacier, part of the Icefields Parkway and Eastern Slopes region. In the town of Jasper itself, visitors enjoy a peaceful small-town atmosphere, while chalets, B&Bs and famous Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge offer a wide range of accommodations, often in buildings reflecting a distinct alpine architecture. For information about visitor destinations near Jasper, visit Edmonton, Hinton, Lake Louise and Valemount, BC.
Visitors won’t soon forget a drive up the wild Fiddle Valley to the hottest mineral springs in the Rockies.
