Let’s address this first thing: getting to the town of Jasper in the heart of majestic Jasper National Park in Alberta, Canada isn’t easy by any means. After flying into Calgary or Edmonton, you have three options to get to Jasper: bus, car, or train. By bus or by car, you’re looking at a three- to five-hour drive (depending on weather conditions and departure point) to Jasper. By train, Edmonton’s your only option; count on a five and a half-hour ride.
What may indeed be a very long day of travel will deliver incredible results, however, when you first lay eyes on Canada’s largest park in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Here, a few ideas on how to spend your time in Jasper during these last weeks of winter.
