Jasper National Park

For well over a century, visitors coming to Jasper National Park
have found beauty beyond imagination.

The town of Jasper is in the heart of Jasper National Park. The park’s shimmering glaciers, abundant wildlife, crystal-clear lakes, thundering waterfalls, deep canyons and evergreen forest — all surrounded by towering mountains — are some of the reasons the park was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It’s one of only 15 such sites in Canada. At 11,228 square kilometers (4,335 square miles), Jasper National Park is also Canada's largest park in the Rocky Mountains and the second largest Dark Sky Preserve in the world.

Jasper offers breathtaking sites and memorable experiences. Adventurers can take advantage of incredible backcountry locations, alpine day hikes, adrenaline pumping mountain biking and great paddling. For a more relaxed pace, take in one of the many scenic drives, picnic amongst majestic peaks, and enjoy unique wildlife viewing. Winter highlights include snowshoeing, skiing on groomed trails, fat biking, skating and more!

"It's the perfect place to reconnect with nature and marvel at the majesty of the universe."
