Jasper Rail Vacations
A must stay on any Canadian Rockies Rail Vacation, Jasper is nestled in the heart of Canada's largest Rocky Mountain park, the town of Jasper offers visitors unparalleled access to some truly breathtaking and pristine wilderness areas.
There are two trains that can get you to Jasper: Rocky Mountaineer, a luxurious train that travels by daylight through the wild beauty of Canada’s West, and VIA Rail, listed among the most renowned trains in the world.
Surrounded by the Canadian Rocky Mountains, Jasper is the heart of Canada’s wildest National Park.
Here you'll find 11,000 square kilometres of wilderness, and activities for adventure seekers to the more relaxed vacationers. Try white water rafting, back-country horseback riding, cruising down the world’s most scenic highway on the back of a Harley Davidson or playing golf on Canada’s #1 resort course. In winter, go soaring in a cable car among towering snow-capped peaks or try ice climbing in Maligne Canyon. Top off the day at Miette Hot Springs, the hottest natural springs in the Canadian Rockies.
Wildlife & SceneryJasper National Park is home to a wide variety of wildlife, including healthy populations of grizzly and black bears, mountain caribou, elk, moose and wolves. It’s also has many smaller creatures, like hoary marmots, pikas and Columbian ground squirrels, bald eagles and the endangered harlequin ducks. The best times of year for sightings are from March to June or September to November, depending on the creature. Choose to explore it in your own vehicle or on a guided tour.
