West of Edmonton, Jasper is Banff’s northern counterpart. The picturesque town site nestled, high in the Rocky Mountains, Jasper has less to offer to the tourists than Banff but the quieter streets, easier access by rail from Edmonton, Vancouver (Kamloops), and Prince George; and linked to Lake Louise and Banff by ‘The World’s Most Scenic Highway’: the Icefields Parkway.
Wildlife can be found right in the town all year around. Excellent trails provide walks of different lengths and challenges through varied terrain and present opportunities to view some of Canada’s most impressive views and wildlife.
With natural wonders and opportunities for enjoying the outdoors, the Icefields Parkway is much more than just a road.
All aboard for the adventure route on VIA Rail from Jasper in the Rocky Mountains to the central west coast town of Prince Rupert.
