Jasper things to do

Maligne Canyon

Located at the gateway to Jasper's Maligne Valley, the Maligne Canyon is a star attraction and offers some of the incredible scenery and celebrated adventures. With depths of over 50 metres at certain points, it’s the deepest canyon in Jasper National Park. Visit during winter for an exclusive experience as you can walk across the frozen canyon.

Columbia Icefield

The Columbia Icefield is the world's largest non-polar icefield. A key attraction is the Athabasca Glacier, which is taller than the Eiffel Tower. An adventure through the spectacular icefield is an unforgettable experience. One great way to get the best views of the Columbia Icefield and Athabasca Glacier is via a surreal drive along the Icefields Parkway.

Athabasca River

The Athabasca River is part of Jasper's heritage and was a vital source of the National Park’s development. The river begins at the Columbia Icefield and stretches through the landscape to northern Alberta. You can find some of the best views of the river beneath the massive Athabasca Falls. Here, the water flows through the narrow canyon creating stunning vistas.
