[smg id=56 type=full width=300 align=left]  If you long to be surrounded by mountain peaks and exceptional wildlife then you must take the time to go camping in Jasper’s National Park, "Canada’s largest rocky mountain park". Wake to caribou grazing outside your tent or go and hike a glacier or gaze into turquoise lakes.

Comprised of delicate and carefully protected ecosystems, Jasper’s scenery is none-the-less rugged and mountainous. In this special corner of Canada you can thrill to the thunder of Sunwapta Falls, enjoy the serene beauty of Mount Edith Cavell, connect with nature along 1,000-plus kilometres of trails, experience Athabasca Glacier up close or just resign yourself to a relaxing soak in Miette Hotsprings.

[smg id=58 type=full width=300 align=right]Jasper National Park is the largest of Canada’s Rocky Mountain Parks and part of the World Heritage Site.  Jasper spans 4,200 square miles of broad valleys, rugged mountains, glaciers, forests, alpine meadows and wild rivers along the eastern slopes of the Rockies in western Alberta.  There are more than 660 miles of hiking trails (both overnight and day trips), and a number of spectacular mountain drives.

Jasper joins Banff National Park to the south via the Icefields Parkway. This parkway offers unparalleled beauty as you travel alongside a chain of massive icefields straddling the Continental Divide. The Columbia Icefield borders the parkway in the southern end of the park.

[smg id=59 type=full width=300 align=left]Large numbers of elk, bighorn sheep, mule deer and other large animals, as well as their predators make Jasper National Park one of the great protected ecosystems remaining in the Rocky Mountains. This vast wilderness is one of the few remaining places in southern Canada that is home to a full range of carnivores, including grizzly bears, mountain lions, wolves and wolverines.
