Jasper has the second largest Dark Sky Preserve in the world, and the town welcomes stargazers year-round but in particular to its annual Dark Sky Festival in October.
The festival itself takes place from in mid-October and we recommend you spend 4-5 nights in Jasper, taking in the sights and sounds of this amazing event, exploring the Dark Sky Preserve, and hopefully getting to view the Northern Lights.
Talk to us about combining this with an autumn trip on the Rocky Mountaineer, a fly-drive holiday taking in Kananaskis, Banff and Lake Louise, or even a city stay in Edmonton or Calgary.
This should be part of your longer holiday within Canada. Ask us for a tailor made itinerary to include this trip.

"We had a very good holiday and it all went to plan"
We had a very good holiday and it all went to plan. I particularly appreciated your quick responses during the planning process and also when we had a query while we were there. You provided useful knowledge about the area and your approach was always professional and friendly. We would have no hesitation in recommending Frontier Canada to friends and family and, as you are aware, are already considering booking with you again for next year.

The next few days can be spent exploring Jasper and it’s attractions as well as, of course, taking part in events for the Dark Skies Festival.
Depending on your arrival date in to Jasper (some attractions close October 15), take a nature walk to Mount Edith Cavell or a sidecar motorcyle tour of Jasper or the year round attractions of the Jasper Skytram or a 3.5 hour Discover Wildlife tour.
Don’t forget your visit to the Jasper Planetarium too.
