The charming town of Jasper is a stunning setting for a nature-lover’s Canada holiday, and a little less well-trod than some of its more famous neighbours. This area is truly wildlife rich, and wherever you are you won’t be able to escape views of the Rocky Mountains that surround Jasper. Visitors here won’t be able to resist exploring the wider area. Nearby Maligne Lake is said by some to be even more beautiful than Lake Louise, and certainly has its fair share of charm.
Suspended above the Sunwapta River, the Glacier Skywalk is a truly singular experience, with its lookout and glass-floored walkway giving a unique perspective on the natural surrounds. Another ‘must’ is a trip to gaze at the wonder of Athabasca Falls, a cascading waterfall whose power produces a thundering roar as the water rushes past in great volume.
For a chance to take in the true glory of the Canadian Rockies, drive the iconic Icefields Parkway between Banff and Jasper. We guarantee it will take your breath away!
