Things to do
Jasper offers breathtaking sites and memorable experiences. Adventurers can take advantage of incredible backcountry locations, alpine day hikes, adrenaline pumping mountain biking and great paddling. For a more relaxed pace, take in one of the many scenic drives, picnic amongst majestic peaks, and enjoy unique wildlife viewing. Winter highlights include snowshoeing, skiing on groomed trails, fat biking, skating and more!
Wildlife spotting is one of the thrills of visiting Jasper. Depending on when you visit, you might spot black or grizzly bears, bighorn sheep, deer, mountain goats, cougars, wolves, coyotes, beaver and more.
Cooler nights give way to longer, warmer days as wildflowers begin to dot the park with colour. Newborn wildlife and migratory birds arrive, and receding snow unveils endless opportunities for outdoor recreation.
Jasper is a wonder of rugged backcountry and scenic frontcountry adventure from forested and lakeside camping. For aspiring canoe and kayakers, don’t miss Jasper’s gem, Hidden Cove!
