Coronavirus (COVID-19) impacts

Visit the Jasper National Park COVID-19 page for updates on park services and sites.

The summer months are our busiest–where we can see over a million visitors in just a few months. The fall is a great time to travel to Jasper, the town is much quieter and the fall colours are absolutely brilliant (and can be the best time of year for hiking and biking). The winter months are pretty incredible! With countless activities, we encourage you to venture beyond to Jasper during this time of year. Spring comes early in Jasper and it’s a great time of year for skiing and wildlife viewing.
