About the tour

Welcome to Jasper in the Canadian Rockies! About 1/2 the size of Banff, Jasper marks the northern end the famous Icefields Parkway and is the historic route through the Yellowhead Pass. It is also extremely isolated and loved by visitors and locals alike. On this tour I will take you for a walk through town, pointing out highlights and offering a history from the fur trade, to trains and now an important dark-sky preserve. I love Jasper!

Thank you Patrick for a nice stroll in Jasper. The snow added a different view to a very quiet town today. We spent four days at the Jasper Lodge a few years ago, when we travelled to Alberta. Great trip in October 2006. We’d love to do it again some day soon.
