Min 3 Max 6 Participants

Jasper National Park is one of the most incredible parks anywhere in the Rockies. This protected park has some of the most impressive mountain ranges, crystal clear lakes, raging water falls and packed with wildlife.

On our 7 day adventure we will explore the best locations the park has to offer. Seeing locations Athabasca Falls, Sunwapta Falls, Pyramid Lake, Patricia Lake, and the ever beautiful Maligne Lake. Jasper National Park and the townsite of Jasper is known as a Dark sky compliant zone, meaning we will have some of the darkest night sky found anywhere in the Rockies.
