Jasper National Park is more than a travel destination. It is also the gateway to some of the most majestic, pristine and accessible wilderness Canada has to offer. The largest of Canada's national parks, Jasper has been designated by UNESCO as part of the Canada Rocky Mountain World Park Heritage Site.
The heartbeat of this national treasure is the Town of Jasper and a community of people bound by a shared love for the natural splendor of the park. They work together to maintain the integrity of the environment, control growth and to play welcoming host to hundreds of thousands of guests from around the world. This vibrant community spirit does more than drive the economy of the town. It also helps to make Jasper National Park the world-renowned destination that it is.
The town itself is the picture of unspoiled natural beauty and breathtaking mountain charm. Set against the backdrop of towering snow-capped mountain peaks, evergreen forests, pristine glacier-fed lakes and waterfalls, Jasper is truly "wonderful, by nature".
