Jasper: Top Three Sites to See

The Canadian Rockies are one of Canada’s most popular travel destinations, offering breathtaking scenery and unique golfing experiences. The serene resort and hotel locations along the mountain range offer a multitude of sightseeing opportunities and with almost 400 Kilometres between Jasper and the two nearest major airports (Edmonton or Calgary), this summer is the perfect opportunity for you to take a road trip.columbia icefields, jasper, alberta

Consider taking a day to visit these natural wonders in the Jasper area:

Columbia Icefields

One of Canada’s most unique attractions, see the Athabasca Glacier from afar at the Columbia Icefield Discovery Centre or take the 90-minute narrated tour which gives you a chance to step out onto the ancient ice valley snuggled in the mountains. While you drive to this location along Icefield Parkway, you’ll also have an excellent chance to catch a view of rushing waterfalls, glistening turquoise lakes and a variety of wildlife including elk, moose, goats, sheep, bears and caribou.

Athabasca Falls

Also located in Jasper National Park, the Athabasca Falls are one of the most powerful and beautiful waterfalls found in the Rockies. The water pounds through a narrow gorge and you’ll have a chance to see where the walls have been smoothed out by the immense force of the rushing water. The dazzling rainbow-coloured spray and unique rock formations are worth the short hike up to see this scene. Picnic sites are also available in the summer, so you might want to make this your lunch location for the day.Maligne Canyon - Jasper National Park

Maligne Canyon

If you’ve got some time at the end of the day, capture the scenery at the Maligne Canyon. The trail winds across six bridges and along the way you’ll find limestone walls that plunge to depths of over 50 meters (165 ft.) and views of the thundering Maligne River. Take a relaxing stroll on your own as far as you’d like to go, or if you’ve got the energy, sign up for a beautiful guided tour.

Whether you’re bringing your own vehicle or renting one, the scenic drive through Jasper National Park will be one you will remember for a lifetime. Don’t forget to pack the camera!
