East of the city of Edmonton, Alberta, lies expansive Jasper National Park, one of the best national parks in Canada. Possibly best known for its Icefields Parkway leading to the massive Columbia Icefields, Jasper occupies mostly wildness area, and it is home to a range of wildlife including moose, bears, elk, eagles and longhorn sheep.
Riddled with glaciers, lakes and rivers, Jasper National Park offers dramatic mountain scenery in between which plunging canyons rest. Be sure to take in the natural hot springs, a soothing, relaxing treat especially in the winter months.
Jasper is ideal for nature lovers, especially those who love to hike, take mountain bike journeys, and climb mountains. Open all year, Jasper takes on a different persona with summer swimming and fishing, and winter skiing, snow-shoeing and skating; camping is available 12 months a year, but if you prefer hotels or motels (and lodges) there are plenty available in the town of Jasper.
