Suggested Itinerary

From Edmonton, travel west until you are in the middle of the towering Rocky Mountains. Here you will find the town of Jasper, a small, bustling community in the National Park. After you check into the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, wander around the property to get acquainted with the area and it’s services or take a trip to the Sunwapta Falls to view the impressive landscape. We have made you reservations at the DownStream Lounge to indulge in a meal that captures Jasper’s mountain town spirit and casual feel with the freshest and most innovative plates. You’re set for 6pm, so please leave a bit earlier to ensure that you find parking and have time to walk over.
The Jasper Park Lodge has a groomed skating area on Lake Mildred that is maintained daily. Bring your skates or rent some on-site to to experience gliding on a mountain pond.

(additional charge)

Upgrade your accommodations to a Premium Deluxe room to enjoy larger spaces with sitting area, or a Junior Suite to receive a wood burning fireplace and a lake view.
Good morning! Have an energy packed breakfast, stretch and pack a bag full of layers to help you dress warm for today. Mid morning, you will be picked up at your hotel and brought to one of Jasper’s most popular and extraordinary winter adventures. Your tour guide will lead you on a walk to the bottom of Maligne Canyon where you can observe amazing waterfalls, ice caves and ice formations from atop the frozen river. Your 3-3.5 hour adventure will showcase unique frozen features and you’ll learn about Jasper’s Maligne Valley, Karst topography, and the mystery of the disappearing Medicine Lake.

In the afternoon, you’ll take a short 1.5 km guided walking tour, where you’ll be visiting four local restaurants and tasting four handpicked dishes. These items will be paired with a delicious alcoholic beverage and local tales from the Jasper National Park. Vegetarian, gluten free, dairy free and most allergies can be accommodated.
Both gloves and mittens are great for outdoor activities and should be fully waterproof to keep your hands warm and dry. Gloves have the most dexterity whereas mittens are often warmer overall. Make sure you have the gear that will protect you while you’re out in the elements.

(additional charge)

Participate in an evening of cosmic discovery with Jasper Planetarium. Take a virtual guided tour in their domed theatre with an astronomy guide to explore local First Nations constellations, view recent Northern Lights displays in Jasper, watch the Milky Way soar overhead and take journey into space. Include a Telescope Experience where you can view the stars or a filtered solar viewing, planets, and more with the most powerful telescopes in the Rockies.
Wake up, enjoy a hot breakfast, pack your bags, and check out of your hotel. On your last day, you will drive east on highway 16 and exit the national park to find your heli tour outfitter. You will meet your pilot, capture photos with the helicopter and then receive a safety briefing to familiarize yourself with the chopper and its features. When it’s time, you will step into the machine, strap in and lift off into the mountains for a 45 minute flight! You’ll float into the Athabasca Valley, fly over the peaks of the Ashlar Ridge, Roche Perdix, and get an up-close view of Roche Miette. Your views of the expansive rocky terrain and the valley below are breathtaking and worthy to explore. As the helicopter lands on Folding Mountain, you will get out and spend the next 30 minutes around the remote area, view blankets of snow covering the rocks, and take pictures of the impressive sights. It’s time to load up again and descend back into the valley towards the landing pad. Here, you can take a few more images or before you depart, take a tour of the hangar. This opportunity is surely the ideal way to top off your upscale Jasper experience.
You are more inclined to see wildlife ON the road in the winter months. Animals like moose, elk and sheep will wander up onto the road to lick up the salt that is used to melt icy patches on the roadways. This creates an extra hazard for motorists, so use caution around blind corners and watch your speed.

(additional charge)

If this experience has you wanting more, then consider adding another night in Jasper or continue on to Banff to extend your stay. These National Parks are packed full of activities and unforgettable adventures that are sure to last a lifetime.
