Part of Canada’s Rocky Mountain Parks UNESCO World Heritage Site, Jasper National Park is ripe for adventure and particularly abuzz in summer, when hiking conditions in Alberta are at their best and longer days allow more time for exploration. Here are some of the best ideas for summer activities in Jasper.

  • Participate in rafting excursions and brave the swirling white-water currents of Jasper’s Sunwapta, Fraser, and Athabasca rivers.
  • Enjoy boat tours that cruise around the turquoise-hued Maligne Lake or take a canoe around Pyramid Lake.
  • Amp up the adrenaline and join a rock-climbing session or canyoning tour.
  • Search for and observe coyotes, bears, deer, Bighorn sheep, moose, and wolves during an early-morning wildlife-viewing tour.
  •  Marvel at the views of the Canadian Rockies from the Jasper SkyTram and the Glacier Skywalk, a glass-bottom viewing platform set 1,000 feet (304 meters) above the floor of the Sunwapta Valley.
  •  Walk along scenic hiking trails that wind around the shorelines of glacier-fed lakes.
  •  Pedal your way from Jasper to Banff, biking all along the Icefields Parkway and making stops at waterfalls and panoramic viewpoints, during a multi-day cycling tour.
