Travel Tips for visiting Jasper

Jasper National Park : Raw gem of the Canadian Rockies

First of all, Jasper National Park is a natural wonder. 
If the landscapes are different from one season to the next, they obviously have this in common: they are always striking. 

Especially in winter when the echo of the summer tourists dies down. In the space of 6 months, You have the chance to go there twice. 
At the snowmelt in June, then in the heart of winter in December.

But first, let's situate Jasper National Park geographically. It is in Western Canada, in Alberta, that the largest national park in the country extends over nearly 10,878 km. 
One of the most beautiful natural parks in the world, it also has many mountains with sharp peaks, lakes with turquoise waters, abundant wildlife, sub-alpine forests but also imperial waterfalls. 

A winning combo especially for all lovers of wild and raw nature.

To visit Jasper National Park is to cross mountain ranges as mysterious as they are captivating. 

In the summer, the turquoise waters are powerful, while in the winter, the abundant snow covers them and draws breathtaking landscapes. 

For your road trip in the Canadian Rockies, would you rather hike and see black bears? 

Would you like to try one of the most beautiful ski resorts in Canada or would you like to go ice climbing?
Your choice of activities will determine the best time to see Jasper Park.

Photograph the frozen Athabasca and Sunwapta Falls

The falls are two must-see stops on the Icefields Parkway.

First, the Athabasca Falls upstream of its namesake river impresses with its water flow in summer.
In winter, if the ice has not completely covered the river, royal blue cavities are formed and stalactites are deposited at the point of the most virulent flows.

Next is Sunwapta Falls, world-famous for its island and tiered waterfalls.
The limestone gorge is then completely frozen in winter and just like in Athabasca, the magic happens!

It is true that the Athabasca and Sunwapta Falls are not only beautiful but also incredibly powerful in the summer. 
However, in the winter, you will have the falls all to yourself! 

Obviously, this is the great advantage of traveling to Jasper in winter and in the off-season!
