Edmonton & Jasper National Park
There are two sides to every adventure
Discover the journey less travelled when you embark on an adventure in Canada’s North. It all begins in Edmonton – the capital of Alberta and the gateway to the Rockies. Dine at the city’s world-class restaurants, shop at the legendary West Edmonton Mall, then hang out with a majestic herd of free-roaming plains bison, all in the same day.
From Edmonton, the trip to Jasper National Park is as magical as the destination; open landscapes, abundant wildlife and infinite prairie skies line the historic Yellowhead Highway as you venture from city to summit. An authentic mountain experience awaits with Jasper’s snow-capped peaks, world-class skiing, and shimmering glaciers. At 11,000 square kilometers, Jasper is the largest National Park in the Canadian Rockies and only 3 ½ hours away from Edmonton. It’s the kind of experience that you’ll remember for a lifetime.
With a strong U.S. dollar, now is the best time to travel north and experience unforgettable.
