Jasper National Park

4.3
World heritage site · Waterfalls · Canyons
The largest national park in the Canadian Rockies, sprawling Jasper National Park encompasses more than 10,000 sq km (4,200 sq mi) of largely unspoiled mountain wilderness. In an area recognized as a World Heritage Site, most Jasper National Park vacations incorporate long hikes across a vast network of trails with whitewater rafting on one of several wild rivers. Visitors taking their holiday in Jasper National Park in the winter spend time skiing, sledding, and snowboarding at the Marmot Basin ski area. Light pollution is so limited in this pristine natural area that many travelers come just for a chance to observe the star-spangled night sky. Find what you're looking for from your Jasper National Park holiday, by planning the whole thing with us using our handy Canada trip itinerary tool.

Where to stay in Jasper National Park

Scores of hotels, lodges, and guesthouses line the western edge of Jasper's main thoroughfare, Connaught Drive, although you might struggle to find more budget-friendly options. If you're willing to pay a higher price, you can immerse yourself in nature without sacrificing luxury by staying in a resort or mountain lodge within the national park itself. Reserve your accommodations advance, as lodgings can be hard to come by at the height of the season.
