About Jasper National Park

At 4,335 square miles, Jasper National Park is the largest park in the Canadian Rockies. Once a place for early settlers and railway pioneers, Jasper is now a hotspot for nature lovers to escape from city life. T

here is a wide range of activities that will take adventurers out into nature. You can begin by hiking some of the many trails that have various levels of difficulties. While you are walking, you can chase cascading waterfalls and sparkling lakes; many visitors love stopping at the turquoise lakes of Moraine Lake and Maligne Lake or the crystal clear green lake of Horseshoe Lake. Depending on when you visit, you will have the opportunity to canoe, kayak, rock climb, ski, snowboard, ice climb, stargaze, and more.
