Banff & Jasper National Parks Travel Reference (English and French Edition)

ITMB Publishing

Banff is the first national park declared anywhere in the world, done at a time when the idea of reserving huge tracts of land for the enjoyment of future generations was an admirable, though unheard of, concept. The park in the Rocky Mountains of western Alberta remains as lovely and as enjoyable as it must have seemed to the early CPR railway surveyors searching for a route through the mountains to join the then-colony of British Columbia to Canada. Nowadays, the park is laced with roads and hiking trails, and the town of Banff within the park is severely pressed to maintain a balance between serving the needs of the millions of visitors each year and the responsibility of maintaining a pristine wilderness environment. This is the Number One national park in the world to this day! Immediately adjacent to Banff NP is Jasper National Park, which was created a bit later but for the same reason to protect a wonderful pristine wilderness while pushing through a rail line to the coast to bind British Columbia more closely, but also to provide access to a second west coast port (Prince Rupert). The park has only one small urban area, the town of Jasper, and is home to the marvelous Columbia Icefield at the Athabasca Glacier, the loveliest lake in the world, Maligne, and the majestic peaks of the massive Victoria Range. As a bonus, Mount Robson Park is also included, as are townsite insets for both Banff and Jasper, so anyone visiting the Canadian Rockies can benefit from using this map.

Done in a Day Jasper: The 10 Premier Hikes

Kathy Copeland

In the midst of sprawling, feral, Jasper National Park is a unique town of the same name. Jasper still has the look, the feel, indeed the substance of a frontier outpost. Yes, there are restaurants, hotels, shops, and everything else travelers need. And what Jasper doesn't have you won't miss. You'll be grateful it's not there. No glitz. No hype. No buzz. Jasper has foresworn the growth at any cost mentality that afflicts most of North America. It has peace and authenticity, which are deeply endearing to visitors in search of the genuine Canadian Rockies.

Done in a Day Jasper describes where to invest your limited hiking time to enjoy the greatest scenic reward. Choose an easy, vigorous, or challenging hike. Start your adventure within a short drive of town. Witness the wonder of Jasper National Park and be back for a great great meal, and soft bed.

 Jasper is four hours drive north from Banff town, along the spectacular Icefields Parkway.
