Jasper

Jasper is a little gem of a town; located at the northern end of the renowned Icefield Parkway where it crosses the Yellowhead Highway.

Surrounded by the Canadian Rocky Mountains and any number of beautiful lakes such as Pyramid, Patricia and Edith, Jasper is the focal point of Jasper National Park, Alberta’s largest Park.

Combines nicely with Banff & Lake Louise in the Canadian Rockies to make for a superb tailormade holiday.  Also works with the Rocky Mountaineer or VIA trains heading to or from Vancouver.
