What Jasper is all about
Jasper is a place for those looking for an outdoor adventure against an incredibly scenic backdrop. Jasper is a small town deep in the Alberta Rockies, right in the middle of Jasper National Park. It is relatively easy to find a hotel in Jasper, with numerous options near and along Connaught Drive (the main artery through the city). Visitors to this beautiful city are spoiled with the riches of the land including a variety of tours (walking, horseback, air, boat and rail). Other activities include golfing, rafting, skiing and fishing. Getting around the city is best done by car or mountain bike. Luckily for out-of-towners it is quite easy to rent either one of these modes of transportation.
Jasper is quite a distance from other major cities like Edmonton (almost 400km to the east) and Banff (nearly 300km to the south), so daytime city-hopping is not really a viable option. However, visitors that enjoy the outdoors will find there is plenty to keep them busy by staying in the city.
