Jasper Summer Itinerary
After spending time in the big city, venture further to discover Jasper National Park and its towering mountains, crystal clear lakes, thundering waterfalls, and abundant wildlife.
Jasper Motorcycle Tours
Snap an endless stream of photos from the comfort of a Harley Davidson sidecar while Jasper Motorcycle Tours takes you on the adventure of a lifetime. Get fitted into riding leathers and experience the thrill of wind in your hair and mountain peaks in your sights! In 2007, Jasper Motorcycle Tours established the first adventure of this kind in North America and is now a Destination Canada signature experience.
Maligne Lake Cruise
Sail 14 kilometres along Maligne Lake, past towering peaks & glaciers, to the peaceful and remarkable Spirit Island. Sit back, relax and enjoy vibrant stories from the on-board tour guide, including the history of the lake and its earliest explorers. Once the boat docks, enjoy a short nature trail leading to a viewing platform for that bucket list photo overlooking Spirit Island!
See Jasper from a whole new perspective when the Jasper SkyTram whisks you up Whistler’s Mountain to an elevation of 2,277 metres for stunning vistas over six mountain ranges, glacially fed lakes, rivers and of course the town below! On a clear day, you can even see the white pyramid of Mount Robson in nearby British Columbia.
Hop into a boat and join Wild Current Outfitters for a guided tour of the iconic Pyramid Lake. Two to six guests can fit in each hand-crafted canoe so sit back, relax and take in the views during this half day tour. Keep cameras handy in case you spot any wildlife such as osprey, beaver, moose, black bear, elk, or coyotes!
