Experience Iconic Jasper

Whether you’re taking a leisurely cruise on the largest glacially fed lake in the Canadian Rockies, or viewing breathtaking glaciers at 918 feet in the air, you’re sure to be left feeling a special connection to the natural beauty and ecological phenomena of Jasper.

With the Maligne Lake Boat Cruise and the Glacier Skywalk now open for the season, visitors of Jasper have the opportunity to engage with the wonders of the real Rockies in an innovative and exciting way.

Maligne Lake Boat Cruise


With record warm temperatures this spring we've seen the early arrival of one of Jasper’s favorite summer attractions: the Maligne Lake Boat Cruise. Take a trip on the 90-minute boat tour to the iconic Spirit Island and learn about the history, geology and wildlife that surround the area.

Known as one of the most spectacular sights within Jasper National Park, Maligne Lake is an absolute must-see in Jasper.

For directions to Maligne Lake, please see our blog post, Where is Sprit Island?

Glacier Skywalk

Glacier Skywalk

Surround yourself with remarkable glaciers and incredible panoramic views at the all-new Glacier Skywalk. Learn about the rich history of the glaciers through interpretive storytelling as you step out unto the cliff-edge glass walkway.  

After exploring the glaciers, check out the Columbia Icefields Discovery Centre. Grab something quick to eat at the cafeteria or have a relaxing meal in the dining room overlooking the Athabasca Glacier.
