Your day-by-day itinerary
Arrival in Jasper
If you’re travelling to Jasper from Wells Gray, you’ll pass the huge Mount Robson – the highest mountain in Canada at nearly 4000m. As you drive along you’ll notice the vegetation becoming thinner, and more and more pine and fir trees begin to appear. Soon enough you’ll be approaching Jasper, in the heart of the famous Rockies. We’ve booked you into a cozy lodge near the Athabasca River, in the perfect spot from which to explore the park.
Explore the National Park
After an epic sunrise over the mountains, you’ll be ready to explore with your group and guide. Heading out to see glassy lakes and the impressive peaks, your guide will show you the best spots for the perfect shot as you keep your eyes peeled for the wildlife that call this stunning place home.
We highly recommend the Maligne Canyon, where a meltwater river flows through a steep gorge, and also the Maligne Lake, which is at the foot of the biggest glacier in the Rockies. Nearby, you’ll also find one of the most picture-perfect scenes in the area at Pyramid Lake, where the mountains rise up in the background to be perfectly reflected in the serene lake. The rest of the day is yours to spend as you wish so take a hike along one of the many trails or relax in the bustling town of Jasper.
Departure from Jasper
This morning it’s time to get on the road again and continue your Rocky Mountain route, which will usually take you along the famous Icefields Parkway to Banff. You can have breakfast at the chalet park before setting off, whilst hopefully watching the Wapiti deer which often roam around the grounds.
