This town is the commercial centre of Jasper National Park and the Athabasca River Valley. It's situation centrally between Edmonton and Banff via the Icefields Parkway which connects Lake Louise in Banff National Park and the Yellowhead Highway and Pass to the West and North West of Canada.
The town has a railway which connects to Vancouver and Toronto and also to Prince Rupert in the North West of British Columbia province.
Jasper is a gateway to a number of attractions including Athabasca Falls, Pyramid Lake, Maligne Lake and canyon, Medicine Lake and others. There is the Jasper Tramway and the town itself has various historic sights.
*Unfortunately, I don't have photos of Jasper townsite*
- Pros:Quieter than its sister town, Banff
- Cons:You need to rely on your own transport to fully explore the surrounding area!
- In a nutshell:An alternative base to Banff!
