    This is a very long and large river flowing along the Icefield Parkway (Hightway 93). You can get great views of many peaks along the river and the highway.  more »

    It is one of the rivers more beautiful place. Somewhere it becomes waterfalls that worth a visit, since it is when the river gets to a small Canyon which is truly spectacular.

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.
