Canada's Greatest Adventure
Venture Beyond in Jasper + Edmonton
Edmontonians do winter right. Grab the season by the snowballs with outrageous festivals, a legendary culinary scene, and the largest shopping and entertainment centre in North America, West Edmonton Mall.
From here, the greatest personal expeditions begin. With shimmering glaciers, abundant wildlife, crystal clear lakes, thundering waterfalls, deep canyons, and evergreen forest – all surrounded by towering mountains – Jasper National Park welcomes those prepared to venture beyond. Plus, the town of Jasper National Park was recently dubbed North America's “Best Ski Town” in USA Today’s Reader’s Choice survey.
