Jasper National Park was established in 1907 on the eastern slopes of the Rockies. It borders British Columbia to the west and Banff National Park to the south. It is only a 4hr drive from Edmonton and 230kms north of Banff. There is also regular train service from Edmonton and Vancouver.
There are beautiful mountain and lake vistas throughout with many hiking and boating opportunities. Plan to spend at least 3 or 4 days here.
Jasper is known for its magnificent glaciers, including North America's most accessible glacier, the Athabasca. You will also come across smaller glaciers while hiking in the mountains, such as this one on Mt. Edith Cavell.
