Western Canada Trails: Episode VI- Jasper
Glacial-fed Canadian Rockies’ Alpine Town: Jasper
It’s a must-stop. Really charming city, quite small but really alive ! Plus there’s a new hostel in the middle of the city, nice rooms, nice people, and the kitchen will be rebuilt soon (that wasn’t a good one). Otherwise there are many hotels and camping ground, but you must book it in advance. Don’t try some adventurous bullshit in « we’ll see mode on », because you’ll sleep on a bench.
I also went there ten years ago, we went to Pyramid Lake and some other places. It was super nice!
You can do some rafting, and that’s a good thing to do there. Water is cold, but it’s funny. Go for the most high rated tour even with a family if you want to get splashed a bit.
Go to Maligne Canyon and then Maligne Lake, it’s a nice little walk and really nice canyon.
If the weather is cold, Miette Hotsprings are far but nice (1h30 of driving). I couldn’t go inside, to much people so maybe give a call before going there. You can see some wildlife on the road there like Goats, Bull Deer, Moose and others.
4 Peaks was a nightclub where we drank some shots for almost nothing. It’s really in the middle of the city.
The places I went to :
- Maligne Canyon
- Maligne Lake
- Pyramid Lake
- Miette Hotsprings
- 4 Peaks
- Movie Theater
- A brewery in the middle of the city, super nice but I don’t remember the name.
