Adventures & Attractions
Rockies Heli Tours
Climbing 500 feet per minute gets you above the peaks to take in the vast Rocky Mountain landscapes, glaciers, streams and rivers of Jasper National Park. There are a variety of year-round helicopter tours available to the Cline and Wilson Glaciers, as well as a tour to the Columbia Icefield. Few people experience the Rockies by air and we think it is an experience that you will remember for a lifetime.
More than a great photo, more than an attraction, this is a learning experience for every guest. The adventure begins at the Lower Station (elev. 1258 metres), where you will board one of our fully enclosed trams and lift off on the flight of a lifetime. During your seven minute flight aboard the Jasper SkyTram, you will be accompanied by one of our fully trained and knowledgeable flight attendants who will point out the many sights and answer your questions. At the top, there is a restaurant, gift shops, and washrooms.

Miette Hot Springs
Heated by geothermal warmth, the Miette Hot Springs are the hottest known springs in Alberta’s Canadian Rockies. Each minute approximately 800 litres of steaming water pours out of the natural ducts along the creek. The Hot Springs are open from mid May to mid October, closed in the winter. The Miette Hot Springs are located 60 kms east of Jasper town site.
Jasper Park Lodge Golf Course
The Jasper Park Lodge Golf Course is an award-winning Alberta golf course that remains one of the must play courses in Canada. Rich in history, this 18 hole championship course offers elevated tee boxes, dramatic bunkers and holes aligned with Rocky Mountain views.
Early outfitters and explorers established many of the trails in the park’s 1200-kilometer network. Seeing the Canadian Rockies on horseback is a beautiful and tranquil way to get into the wilderness. Check out Jasper Park Horseback Riding Stables to book your tour.
Glacier Discovery Centre & Skywalk
The Glacier Discovery Centre, located on the boundary of Banff and Jasper National Parks, offers interpretive exhibits, interpretive scenic walks, self-guided trails, dining room, cafeteria, and gift shop.
Six minutes north is the Glacier Skywalk - a cliff-edged walkway where giant glaciers perch above you and the spectacular Sunwapta Valley spreads out below. The Columbia Icefield Skywalk experience features waterfalls, wildlife, fossils and more on an exciting 1-kilometer walkway that leads to a platform where glass is all that separates you from a 918-foot drop.
