Jasper National Park

peyto-lakeJasper National Park is the largest of Canada’s Rocky Mountain Parks and part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.  Jasper spans 10,878 square kilometres (4,200 square miles) of broad valleys, rugged mountains, glaciers, forests, alpine meadows and wild rivers along the eastern slopes of the Rockies in western Alberta.  There are more than 1,200 kilometres (660 miles) of hiking trails (both overnight and day trips), and a number of spectacular mountain drives.

Jasper joins Banff National Park to the south via the Icefields Parkway.  This parkway offers unparalleled beauty as you travel alongside a chain of massive icefields straddling the Continental Divide.  The Columbia Icefield borders the parkway in the southern end of the park.

Why not drive through this magnificent landscape on World Discovery’s classic ‘Canadian Pacific’ itinerary?
