There are many things to do while visiting the park, no matter what the season may be. Visit the 23 meter Athabasca Falls, that flows from glaciers into a small canyon. Sunwapta Falls is also located within the park and was created by hanging valleys. These falls play home to major bear and moose habitats and may be seen along a 25 km hike. Mt Edith Cavell is another natural attraction at Jasper National Park. This 3,300 meter peak allows visitors to hike up the mountain on a series of trails. Be sure to watch that you don’t go off the path, since it takes some time for vegetation to grow back at that altitude.
Experience stunning views of Jasper from the Jasper Tramway. The Jasper Tramway takes you 2,277 meters above sea level to the Upper Station, where you can shop at the gift shop, dine at the Treeline Restaurant, or just enjoy the view from the top of Whistler Mountain. On your 7 minute trip up the mountain in one of the two cars carrying 30 passengers and one guide, enjoy the magnificent views of the 6 different mountain ranges, the glacial lakes, the Athabasca River, and the scenic townsite of Jasper.
Visitors in Jasper enjoy a peaceful atmosphere; while chalets, bed and breakfasts and the famous Jasper Park Lodge offers a wide range of accommodation, with distinct alpine style, architecture and décor. The Icefields parkway, the road south from Jasper all the way to Lake Louise is renowned for its breathtaking vistas. Stop at the Columbia Icefield and take an Ice Explorer across the 6 km long sheet of ice as thick as the Eiffel Tower. Afterwards take a step out onto the ice yourself and for the experience of a lifetime.
