Jasper is located in Jasper National Park near the British Columbia/Alberta border, 863 km from Vancouver, British Columbia and 414 km from Calgary, Alberta.
Jasper is the largest and most northerly Canadian rocky mountain national park, part of a spectacular World Heritage Site. Comprised of delicate and carefully protected ecosystems, Jasper's scenery is none-the-less rugged and mountainous. The Parks Canada website offers important visitor information on activities, learning experiences, campgrounds, trail conditions and public safety
With a population of 5,236 people, Jasper is a laid back, peaceful, non-commercialized, alpine paradise, which in a word is authentic; the kind of place that welcomes visitors like family and treats everyone with genuine kindness and respect.
Jasper is that breath of fresh cool mountain air, crisp and invigorating, yet reassuringly calm. A self-described little town in a big park, this historic settlement strikes a fine balance between conservation and development, ecology and economics. In its untamed heart, it’s a gateway to adventure within the largest and most northerly Canadian rocky mountain national park, part of a spectacular World Heritage Site. You’re as likely to share a silent morning moment with grazing elk here as you are with fellow human beings.
And even though it offers every conceivable world-class resort luxury, amenity and activity – plus gourmet dining with nearly as many stars as the clear midnight skies – Jasper will tug at your heart long after you leave for one very simple reason – it feels like home.
Jasper. Wonderful. By Nature.
