Fall in Jasper National Park
Looking for an adventure filled getaway this fall? Jasper National Park offers the right mix of ingredients to deliver just that! Here are the five key ingredients to get the most out of your experience while visiting the park:
A heaping scoop of camping
Jasper welcomes all forms of campers – from those interested in cozying up in a one-person bivy tent to those cruising in a 40-foot motor home. A few of our campgrounds are still fully operational for the month of September and well into October. Our signature oTENTiks, part tent, part cozy cabin are the perfect way to camp in the fall.
A dash of hiking
Jasper offers up a variety of hikes for all adventure levels. Whether you are looking to venture a short distance from the townsite or scramble a mountain, we have it covered. Fall temperatures are most enjoyable for hiking in the Rocky Mountains. The crisp fresh air on top of the beautiful fall colours provide the perfect delectable combination.
A splash at the Miette Hot Springs
Make the most of your trip to the Miette Hot Springs and begin with a hike up the Sulphur Skyline, where you can marvel in the beauty of the fall colours and exquisite mountain peaks. After you make your way back down, treat your muscles to a nice soak in our hot and cool pools at the hot springs.
A pinch of mountain biking
Immerse yourself in nature while avoiding crowds on our cruisy mountain biking trails. Cyclists return to Jasper in the fall months to explore our well-connected and maintained routes. If you are looking for an easy trail or want a challenging climb, we have it all.
A dollop of Dark Sky viewing
The month of October is dark sky month and what better way to celebrate than a festival! The 6th Annual Jasper Dark Sky Festival runs from October 13-22, 2017. Our Parks Canada Dark Sky interpreters will be running programs throughout the festival and beyond. For a full list of events and special guests, visit Tourism Jasper.
