Angel Glacier, Jasper National Park

4.9
#5 of 12 in Trails in Jasper National Park
The Angel Glacier flows down the north face of Mount Edith Cavell in Jasper National Park, Canada. It is named as such because it has the appearance of an angel with out-swept wings. It was much larger when it was named in the 19th-century, but as with most glaciers worldwide, it is melting rapidly. It is not expected to maintain its distinctive appearance for much longer, and will eventually disappear from the face of Mount Edith Cavell.The glacier is visible from the Cavell Meadows hiking trail.

  • Very pretty - it was raining when we visited, I'm sure it looks very different in the sunshine. It is not a long or strenuous hike/walk to the glacier  more »
  • Angel-shaped glacier, just a little, you can see if you look up. But I rated the inspiration. But the walks of Carvel meadows.

  • The rush to the Angel glacier seems to have grown in recent years. Anyway, you now need a permit, which is issued at the visitor centre. If you go though in the morning shortly after opening there, you get this without a problem. If our 25 ft RV, you wanted to tell us that there might be a problem on the way because the road is very winding and narrow. Completely over the top. From the parking lot, there is a short way to the foot of the glacier. The long road was unfortunately locked at the time of our visit (see picture). The Perkreglementierung also not running heavily over an absolute WOW and diurch. If you have the opportunity, should be towards the Angel glacier necessarily make!

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.
