Jasper Highlights Half Day Tour

Your tour guide will pick you up from your hotel in Jasper for this half-day sightseeing tour of Jasper National Park. While touring through Jasper, you have a great chance of seeing all types of wildlife due to the remote location of this Rocky Mountain town. The first stop on the tour is the Maligne Canyon, where 10,000 years of erosion have created the deepest canyon in the Rockies. Start off with a short and easy walk, admiring the Maligne River and its many waterfalls as you cross back and forth across a series of bridges.

From late May to early October, you’ll make a stop at the disappearing Medicine Lake, followed by the fairytale-like Maligne Lake for a boat cruise out to Spirit Island.

From mid-October to mid-May, you may visit other sites around Jasper such as Pyramid Lake/Pyramid Lake Island, visit the Mount Robson viewpoint, the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies, or do other activities such as hike the Mary Schaffer Loop, hike out to Moose Lake, or set out in search of wildlife.

Pick-ups for this tour typically range from 15 minutes before, or 15 minutes after the listed start time in Jasper. Your exact pickup time will be confirmed a few days prior to the tour as the timing is dependent on where the other guests in your small group are staying.
