Jasper Hotels

Towering snowcapped mountains and sweet-smelling pine forests. Sapphire blue skies reflected in the mirrors of restful lakes. If you’re looking to get in touch with nature, Jasper’s back garden offers all the scenic trimmings. Set within the Athabasca River valley in the Canadian Rockies, the National Park’s town is a secluded haven of relaxation and leisure. Outdoorsy types can fill their itineraries with the likes of hiking, horse riding, fishing, and skiing, while those just looking to escape will find plenty of paradise to unwind in.

Things to see

With thousands of sprawling square miles of unspoiled wilderness, Jasper National Park is the largest in the Canadian Rockies. Hiking trails and tours run throughout the lush landscape, linking visitors to attractions such as the haunting Columbia Ice Fields and the snowy slopes of Marmot Basin. Watching silently over Jasper town you’ll see the craggy Pyramid Mountain and placid Pyramid Lake, while nearby Patricia Lake is famous for its links to Project Habbakuk during World War II. Perhaps the most well known lake however, is the teal hued Maligne Lake. The second largest glacier-fed body of water in the world, its green banks and cool waters surround the iconic Spirit Island – a tiny peninsula, steeped in folklore. A trail through Maligne Canyon is also a must-do. The gorge’s vast limestone walls drop to depths of over 165ft, with the Maligne River running rapidly below. In winter the entire canyon becomes encased in glittering ice, making the scenery even more magical.

Hotels in Jasper

Whatever your taste and budget you’ll find an avalanche of suitable hotels in Jasper, from sprawling lodges and private cabins, to wilderness hostels and campgrounds. If you’re here to get away from it all but still fancy some of the finer things, the luxury hotels in Jasper National Park boast amenities that range from scenic golf courses to lavish spas. Hotels and motels in the mid-range offer a well appointed standard of accommodation too, and lack none of the creature comforts. Many of Jasper’s digs come packaged with a quintessential ‘outdoorsy’ charm – think mounted moose heads, antler chandeliers, and views to the mountain while you sip your après-ski drinks.

Where to stay

There’s plenty of accommodation to be found dotted about the vast wilderness, although staying in the town of Jasper itself allows you to enjoy the natural surroundings while keeping modern amenities close to hand. Plenty of tour and activity companies operate here, taking visitors to and from the major attractions at their own convenience. Whilst comparatively quieter than its more touristy cousin Banff, Jasper still has a hearty selection of restaurants and souvenir shops, should you want to dine or splash out. The best thing about staying here however is the view – Pyramid Mountain and Pyramid Lake are right on the town’s doorstep.

How to get to Jasper

It can be a little bit of a trek to get into Jasper, but it wouldn’t be ‘getting away from it all’ quite as much if there was an airport next door. The nearest airport however, is Edmonton International, which sees direct flights throughout Canada, the United States, Latin America, and Europe. SunDog Transportation and Tours offers daily shuttle services between the airport and Jasper, with a journey time of approximately 4 hours. While it may take a while, the route is breathtakingly scenic. Jasper can also be reached via the Rocky Mountaineer tour train, which makes stops at Jasper Station.
