People have compared Jasper to heaven. When you come and spend a few days you will see many wonders of God's creation. There is no doubt that if you are visiting Jasper you might need a few days.
Lake Annette Beach is quite simply one of the most spectacular beach settings one can find. Nestled in the Rocky Mountains and close to the Town of Jasper, the beach itself is sandy with a large grassy area and picnic tables. The lake is fed glacially and is referred to as a kettle (a depression created by a large piece of glacier being pressed into the earth by the material above it and melting with the receding glacier). The beach and lake are easy to access. This lake also offers a loop to hike if you need to stretch your legs. The loop is a 2.7-km loop that is good for all skill levels and is moderately travelled. Offering chances to see wildlife and experience some incredible views it’s worth the break from the beach.
Head east of town towards Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge and take Maligne Lake Road and stop in at Maligne Canyon for the most stunning hike and adventure around! Maligne Canyon is the deepest canyon in Jasper National Park, with a depth of more than 50 metres at certain points. Hikers of all abilities can explore this incredible natural landmark by crossing six bridges built across various points of the canyon. This hike is good for hikers of all levels. Each bridge offers spectacular views for perfect photo opportunities. Exploring the canyon in the wintertime is perhaps even more spectacular than in summer. Guided Ice Walk tours are available to book and purchase. These Ice Walk experiences take you down into the canyon where you walk directly along the canyon’s frozen floor. With frozen falls and icy caverns all around, it’s an experience like no other.
Outdoor patios abound in the town of Jasper. A local favourite is the Patricia Street Deli. Rated #1 on Trip Advisor, the Deli is located on Patricia Street, across from the Candy Bear Lair candy store. The Deli offers take-out, made-to-order sandwiches. Offering fresh ingredients and an incredibly friendly staff who are keen to suggest how you can amp up your sandwich and make it mouth-watering. You’ll stop once and want to go back to Jasper not just for the mountains but for the Patricia Street Deli. Take your sandwiches on the road and head out to Athabasca Falls or Maligne Lake. Not only will your eyes be feasting on the splendour of creation, but your belly will be feasting on the splendour of your deli lunch!!
Whether you're road tripping in the summer or the winter, you are sure to find adventures in Jasper!
