Local Area Attractions
Explore Athabasca Glacier
Located along the Icefield Parkway / Highway 93.
The Athabasca Glacier - a tongue of ice 6 kilometres long and one kilometre wide descending almost to road level. Take time to explore the Glacier while experienced driver/guides explain how glaciers are formed and point out interesting geological features. At the icefall below the glacier headwall, you have the option of stepping out onto ice formed from snow falling as long as 400 years ago.
Caving at Cadomin Cave
A short drive on Highway 40 South Cadomin Cave is not a commercial or developed "Tourist Cave". The 1.5 hour hike to the entrance ascends 300 metres over steep terrain that can be muddy and slippery. You must be physically fit, have proper footwear and clothing, and have taken proper safety precautions. At this time the cave is closed to protect our bat colony from White Nose Syndrome which is a fungal infection thought to be spread by humans entering the cave.
For an unforgettable view Jasper Tramway is the longest and highest guided aerial tramway in Canada and the only guided aerial ropeway in the Canadian Rockies. Providing visitors with unprecedented views of six mountain ranges, glacial fed lakes, the Athabasca river (Alberta's longest) and the scenic mountain town-site of Jasper.
Miette Hot Springs
Soak in Miette Hot Pools while taking in the amazing scenery.
You won't soon forget the drive up the wild Fiddle valley to the hottest mineral springs in the Rockies. Flowing from the mountain at 54°C, the water is cooled to a comfortable temperature of 40°C as it enters the pools. The Hot Springs are just right for soaking and relaxing.
