Whether you're looking for adventure, relaxation, or a little bit of both, Jasper has something for everyone.

Guided Tours

We highly recommend participating in a guided adventure if you do not have much time to spend in Jasper, or if you do not wish to partake in aggressive hiking.

This is also a popular activity in inclement weather. The following sightseeing operators invite you to participate in wildlife searches, historical tours, rail tours, and much more:

      Water Activities

      Enjoy Jasper's beautiful lakes and rivers with the activity of your choice.

      Boating in rowboats and canoes is permitted on most lakes within Jasper National Park. Boats with electric motors (without on-board generators) are allowed on most road-accessible lakes. Use of gas-powered motors is prohibited. Paddle boarding is also a popular lake activity in Jasper.

      Whitewater Rafting

      A truly Canadian outdoor experience, rafting is one of the most popular summer activities in Jasper. Rafting on Jasper National Park's river system allows you to view the Park from a totally new perspective, and is perfectly suited to family occasions, parties, and celebrations.

      Horseback Riding

      Horses have been used to explore the mountains and valleys of Jasper National Park since the very beginning.

      Early outfitters were the source of many of the trails within Jasper National Park. Horse travel is utilized in many areas of the park, although Parks Canada does suggest you adhere to the approved horseback trails in order to limit your impact on the parks wilderness.

      We recommend the following for your horseback riding adventure:

      Golfing

      Designed by Stanley Thompson, Canada's master golf course architect, the award winning Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge golf course continues to be a must play course in Canada. A driving range is available, along with golf clubs and shoe rentals.

      Combine a round of golf with our famous bed and breakfast package for a most memorable holiday!

      Fishing


      Anyone 15 years old or younger may fish in Jasper National Park without a license, if accompanied by a permit holder 16 years of age or older. However, their catch must be included within the permit holder's daily limit. They may also purchase their own permit and be entitled to the full catch limit.


      A day fishing at Maligne lake can easily turn out to be a highlight and is considered by many as a top priority item on their bucket list!


      Heli-Tours

      Rockies Heli Canada's Icefield Adventure Base offers amazing helicopter tours over the Jasper/Banff Icefields Parkway. 

      Imagine the epic views as your pilot whisks you over the mountains, getting a unique birds-eye view of glaciers, rivers, lakes, and waterfalls from a perspective that few are lucky enough to see. 

      But the experience doesn’t stop there. You’re now in the perfect spot to enjoy heli-hiking, camping, fishing, or even yoga. Or maybe just pull out a picnic and some bubbly while relaxing with Mother Nature! To learn more visitwww.rockisheli.com.
