Jasper National Park is situated 30 min. from our cabins rentals accommodations on a plateau in the Athabasca Valley, within the Canadian Rocky Mountains, west of Edmonton, northwest of Calgary and northeast of Vancouver, BC.
Jasper is the largest of the northern Canadian Rocky Mountain National Parks, and is part of a spectacular World Heritage Site. Comprised of delicate and carefully protected ecosystems. Jasper’s scenery is non-the-less rugged and mountainous. Established in 1907 on the eastern slopes of the Rockies. Jasper is part of the UNESCO Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks World Heritage Site.
At over 10800 sq. km (4200 sq. miles), the park is an example of a protected mountain ecosystem that allows for visitors to enjoy solitude, wildlife, outdoor recreation and a wide range of learning opportunities. Within the boundaries of Jasper National Park you will find five National Historic sites. The Jasper Information Center, Athabasca Pass (Viewpoint about 25 km south of the Icefields Parkway), Yellowhead Pass, Jasper House (the remains of an 1829 fur trade post), and Henry House (site of an 1811 North West Company post).
Shimmering glaciers, abundant wildlife, crystal clear lakes, thundering waterfalls, deep canyons and evergreen forests surrounded by towering rugged mountain peaks-are what your eyes have been waiting to see. Jasper is an internationally recognized four-season destination with so much to see and do to suit everyone’s taste. Whatever spectacular time of year you choose to visit-just be sure you plan to stay awhile in our cabins. You’ll want to have enough time to enjoy Jasper’s many exceptional offerings, such as the Hot Springs, cross country skiing, down hill skiing, wildlife viewing, marmot basin, boating at Maligne Lake, Maligne Canyon ice walk and many more.
