With its majestic peaks and abundant wildlife, Jasper is a mecca for wilderness and adventure. From skiing, snowshoeing and skating in the winter to hiking, camping and biking in the warmer months, Jasper National Park is a special place to reconnect with nature. Covering over 11,000 sq km, Jasper National Park is the largest park in the Rocky Mountains. It is also the second largest dark-sky preserve in the world. In the month of October, Jasper celebrates dark sky month with the annual Jasper Dark Sky Festival, a must-see festival for all avid star and nature seekers.
