Located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, Jasper and its surrounding National Park is a must for any family trip to Canada. You’ll stay a couple of nights close to the centre of this relaxed mountain town, a perfect base to explore the nearby pristine lakes and valleys. You'll also head out wildlife spotting with a local guide, hoping for that perfect picture of a passing bear or grazing moose.

Day 1 – Arrival in Jasper

If you’re arriving from the west, you’ll see the hills get steeper and the snow-capped mountains rise from the valleys. Soon, you’ll arrive at the picturesque town located in the heart of one of Canada’s most stunning National Parks – Jasper. It’s a short walk from your comfy hotel to the town’s shops and various restaurants. Get an early night though, as you’ve got an animal-appointment first thing!

Day 2 – Sunrise wildlife tour

It’s an early start today, as you’re picked up before sunrise for the best chance to see the local wildlife. You’ll be taken to some of the beautiful nearby lakes for some great photo opportunities, continuing to Maligne Canyon and Maligne Lake, where you’ll hopefully be lucky enough to see some passing elk and caribou, and maybe even a black bear or some grazing moose in the nearby forests.

Day 3 – Leaving Jasper

We can book extra nights in Jasper of course, otherwise it’s time to continue your journey, either west to Sun Peaks for a spot of paddle-boarding or south on the awe-inspiring Icefields Parkway road lined by glaciers, turquoise lakes and fir trees. For older kids, the glacier walk is a really popular activity that breaks the journey up too!
