Holidays to Jasper, Canada

Whether arriving by road or rail, you'll be dazzled by your entry into Jasper, where the magnificent Mount Robson towers over the beautiful landscape.

Jasper has excellent rail connections to Prince George, Vancouver and Edmonton, making it a great stopover destination; any train journey to or from Jasper can be characterised by incredible scenery in all directions.

Take a boat trip to the tiny Spirit Island, situated in Maligne Lake - a true icon of the Rockies, and one of the most photographed spots in Jasper. Eroded over millennia by the numerous and complex river systems, the Maligne Canyon is a great hiking spot punctuated by waterfalls, native birds and miles of flora and fauna. After a day spent exploring, relax in the Miette Hot Springs, the warmest hot springs in the Rockies. If you're seeking yet more adventure, take to the water at Medicine Lake and the Athabasca River which are ideal for white water rafting, canoeing and kayaking in the summer months.

For a truly memorable experience, take to the road in a Harley Davidson sidecar where you'll be whizzed around yet more spectacular spots, including Mount Edith Cavell and Angel Glacier. If you want a view to remember, the Jasper SkyTram whisks you up to an elevation of 2,277 metres. On a clear day, you might be able to spot the white pyramid of Mount Robson in nearby British Columbia.

If you're a wildlife enthusiast, you won't be disappointed in Jasper National Park where common sightings include elk, moose and bears, particularly along the Icefields Parkway. The Columbia Icefield stretches from the northwestern tip of Banff National Park to Jasper National Park, and is the largest ice field in the Rockies. Stop off at the Visitor Centre and join a tour of the glacier, where you will get the chance to have a walk on the ice.
