"Jasper the friendly park" Jasper National Park by dinhyen

Jasper National Park Travel Guide: 437 reviews and 1,104 photos

The Icefield Parkway from Banff NP to Jasper NP is probably the longest road I've ever taken. That's because I was tempted to pull off the road at every turn to immerse in the breathtaking vistas.

Jasper NP is the largest of Canada's Rocky Mountain parks. The "typical" scenery here are soaring mountains, broad valleys, and mirror-like lakes. The massive glaciers of the Columbia Icefield offers a glimpse at what it must have been like in the Ice Age. And of course animals inhabitants here probably outnumber humans. There are much to be explored and discovered here. I only wish I had a few years' time and 36-hour days to do them :)

The precipitous gorges of Maligne Canyon induces awe, not to mention vertigo.

Athabasca falls' thunderous roar leaves little doubt that water is nature's most effective carving tool.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Some of the grandest vistas on the planet
  • Cons:No matter how much time you've spent, you probably haven't spent enough.

    I guess we went to a lot of the same places and took pictures of them. I also posted many on VT. Brings back memories. The greatest.

    The more I see of these Canadian national parks the more I understand that Glacier NP in Montana has some impressive rivals. Great page.

    Beautiful page! So that's what Athabasca Falls looks like when it's going strong---I saw it as a trickle. Maligne Canyon is gorgeous...and your pictures do it justice!

    I may have to change my summer travel plans to see Jasper and Athabasca Falls. Nice.
