Jasper is the gateway to Canada’s Rocky mountains, without all the rock and roll of Banff. Jasper National Park receives half the visitors of its bold and brassy neighbour, yet it ranges over nearly half as much land mass. What’s more, tucked away in this pristine wilderness, there are three times the number of bears, elk, moose and caribou.
A hotel in Jasper places all this within your reach. The rugged landscapes contain stunning deep river canyons, impressive mountain ranges that have stood the test of time and delicate ecosystems that also seem able to weather the storms.
The entrance to the town of Jasper in the Rocky mountain area of Alberta, Canada, is a visual feast in itself. Approaching from the south through the Gothic Icefields Parkway you meander up from the beauty of lake Louise past frothing waterfalls and mountains carved by glaciers. And it’s not just nature that provides the interest; among these foothills there is a fascinating history of fur-trading and aboriginal cultures to explore.
The iconic peaks and slopes of Mount Edith Cavell are always visible from the town, and many Jasper hotels boast dramatic views of her rugged charms. From your accommodation you can take advantage of the many opportunities for hiking, cycling, skiing, wildlife spotting and discovering the legendary tales of pioneering history.
And it’s far from all being imposing mountains with huge glaciers clinging to their precipices. Glassy lakes seem to glow with rich shades of blue, waterfalls gush down seemingly bottomless canyons and the expansive valleys are covered by mysterious forests and inviting alpine meadows.
Welcome to Jasper National Park. It’s been thrilling visitors since 1907, been a designated Unesco World Heritage Site since 1984, and it’s remarkably easy to access, unlike some of Canada’s more remote parks.
While Jasper boasts every type of hotel you are likely to ever desire – from spa to apartment, eco-friendly to family-friendly, budget to luxury – we advise you to think first about where you wish to be based and what views you wish to enjoy.
For instance, is it the serenity of a lake view that you wish to return to after a day’s hitting the trails? If so, hotels just out of town near lakes such as Mildred, Beauvert and Pyramid will offer you the glassy waters that you desire.
Are you here for the white stuff? If so, a Jasper hotel in the mountains will place those slopes within easy reach.
Having decided where you want to be and what you want to see you can then select from the Jasper hotels that best fit your break.
The most popular times to book a hotel in Jasper are June to August and December to March. These two seasons reflect different types of holidays. In summer nature lovers relish the warm and welcoming weather, whereas the ski season centres on the winter months.
During these peak times, the hotels can become fully booked so it really does pay to plan your stay in advance.
Whenever you visit, however, do not underestimate the sun. Sunglasses, a hat and sunscreen will be necessary to protect you from the strong sun at the alpine altitudes in Jasper.
Maligne lake’s twin-coloured waters is a justifiably popular boat excursion, as are trips to the spectacular Columbia Icefields and the soothing Miette hot springs, which are particularly welcome after a hard day of hiking or cycling the trails.
For those who like their waters fast-flowing, Maligne canyon’s river gushes in a mighty torrent and pours into the lake with amazing force and volume. However, in winter you can walk along the canyon bottom to see masses of blue ice where summer waterfalls once flowed.
It’s equally dramatic at Athabasca Falls. Here the river thunders through a narrow gorge, smoothing its walls and even creating potholes as rocks and stones are hurled against its sides.
Mount Robson is the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies, at 3,954 metres. Within its slopes you’ll find nearly 850 square miles of stunning mountains, valleys and waterways. Forests here are home to an abundant array of wildlife including mountain goats, moose, deer, elk, marmot, squirrels and chipmunks.
Of course, Jasper can be enjoyed on relaxing drives as well as strenuous hikes. The GyPSy Guide is a small electronic device that uses GPS technology to deliver commentary about the history, wildlife and geology of the area as you take a scenic cruise through it.
