  • Beautiful glacier and wildlife views with a moderate hike. We saw numerous birds, pikas and 3 marmots on the trail.  more »
  • Since there are currently working through the construction of a new parking lot was a permit necessary. Nice drive to the top followed by a short walk to the glacier and more. Sure do

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.
