  • Lake place far from Athabasca falls, which has the distinction of having the shape of a Horseshoe. The exit from the motorway is not indicated (located between the falls and the Athabasca pass, on the right heading towards Jasper), but still offers toilets and car park, and also the path down is not kept. Beyond some photos the Lake doesn't offer anything ... The shape you can't even distinguish, because there is a point where you have an overview. Definitely great.

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.
