Things to Do in Jasper

Jasper National Park
Jasper National Park is a haven for tons of elk, bears, porcupines, bighorn sheep, and more. When you go through the park looking for some of its inhabitants, it's good to remember to respect their home. That means staying on designated trails, clearing up your campground, and keeping a safe distance.
Cowboy’s Way Horseback Riding
For the complete Jasper experience, a good option is to follow Cowboy’s Way. This 3-hour horseback trail takes you past Patricia Lake, which is full of underwater life and surrounded by forest critters. Plus, you'll pass some incredible viewpoints on the way. A tip – book a morning tour to get the best wildlife viewing experience.
Maligne Canyon
The Canadian Rockies are full of life all year round, and Maligne Canyon is the perfect place to experience it. In the summer, a simple drive through the canyon and you'll usually see a few black bears or moose. And in the colder months, you can book a winter wildlife tour to check out elk, coyotes and osprey.
Jasper Skytram
This is one place where you don’t want to forget your camera. Jasper Skytram is a cable car that takes you up Whistlers Mountain, with stunning views during the whole climb. Along the way, friendly guides will point out the animals below you. Once you’re dropped off at the top, you can hike back down the ridge.

Jasper is beautiful and I can’t wait to come back in the summer or the fall with more time to enjoy! Go to pyramid Lake to walk, skate or even snowshoe! Very beautiful.

Jasper is one of Canada’s best secrets. From the inflated dome planetarium to the ice walk by Maligne Tours to Marmot Basin for an afternoon on the hills, you will be mesmerized. Jasper has a lot to offer and staying at the Sawridge Inn made it the more pleasant.

Booked for two nights. Via rail return train delayed two days. Had to seek alternative rooms as town fully booked. Lost pre paid forward bookings. Via rail attitude appalling. Will never use them again.

Not as beautiful or historic as Banff or Lake Louise. Mainly a skier's town in winter with lots of places to stay and eat.

Edith Cavell. Very close to mountains and we even saw an avalanche

Study the trails to suit the experience of hiker you are.
