JASPER NATIONAL PARK


Jasper National ParkEstablished in 1907 after the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway line through the Yellowhead Pass was erected, Jasper National Park is the largest of Canada's Rocky Mountain national parks at 10,878 km square (4200 square miles) and is brimming with natural beauty and human history. The rugged mountain terrain and vast valleys where Indians, fur traders, mountaineers, prospectors, railroad surveyors and geologists once explored leaves a lasting impression on those who visit. The Athabasca Glacier, Miette Hotsprings, Sunwapta and Athabasca Falls, Mount Edith Cavell's impressive glaciers and the Maligne Canyon are all accessible by road or ride the tramway to the top of the Whistlers to experience the alpine beauty and varied wildlife ecosystem of Jasper National Park. Here in the park the visitor may explore the Athabasca Glacier by way of one of many Snowcoaches operating here.
