Jasper City Sightseeing Tour

Immerse yourself in the stunning landscape of the Canadian Rockies during this 4-hour excursion near Jasper. Breathe in some fresh mountain air, and keep your eyes peeled for local wildlife, as you experience some of the area's top natural attractions.

Start your outdoor exploration with pickup from select Jasper hotels at 8:30am, continuing by coach for your sightseeing journey. Head to Maligne Canyon, a magnificent gorge where you'll walk along the edge and cross two bridges offering dramatic views of the waterfalls down below. Continue to Medicine Lake, a relatively shallow body of water fed by nearby glaciers. You'll enjoy fantastic vistas of the nearby Colin and Queen Elizabeth mountain ranges in your field of view.

Then proceed to stunning Maligne Lake, where you'll take in more incredible views of the three nearby glaciers and the much-photographed Spirit Island. Make sure to watch for wildlife during your your stop at the lake, as the surrounding valley is home to a variety of moose, big horn sheep, deer and bears. Osprey, eagles and a pack of wolves are known to inhabit the area as well. Finish your trip with a drop-off back at your Jasper hotel.

Please note: this tour is seasonal and only operates from May through to October.

The day was cloudy and rainy and the bus driver refused to do anything about the weather. However, I really enjoyed the tour and as it turned out, the overcast foggy weather made for some truly beautiful photos. The driver was polite, funny, upbeat, very friendly and informative about the history of the area. Even with the rain it was money well spent. All together a very enjoyable tour.

Our guide was terrific - informative without being pedantic - because of the wildfires he had to modify our tour but the places we saw were terrific. It was a worthwhile three hours and I got a good sense of the the city and the surrounding countryside

Tour was excellent and made more so by our driver (Dave) from Brewsters who kept us all amused with his andecotes and local knowledge - we were fortunate to know him from the previous day when he was our driver on the excursion transfer from Banff to Jasper

A great tour, absolutely beautiful scenery and lots of elk, deer and bears seen. If you only have a few hours spare this is a great way of seeing the area.

My husband and I were lucky enough to be on a tour with a very small group 5 people. With the small size, Mich our guide/driver was very flexible and accommodating. Since we were running ahead of schedule, he even made an extra stop at an overlook. A pleasant half-day tour taking in the must-see sights of Maligne Canyon and Maligne Lake. We got back to Jasper with enough time to go up the Tram for a hike.
