Jasper National Park


During your trip, we HIGHLY encourage you to explore nearby Jasper, Alberta either before or after our event. August is the pinnacle of summer fun in the Canadian Rockies! Jasper is an alpine town which hosts Jasper National Park amid the snowcapped Canadian Rockies, glacier-fed lakes, forests, and rivers. The wildlife sightings are also like no other – caribou, elk, moose, bears, wolves…you don’t want to miss the chance to explore this natural beauty!

We have special rates lined up with Sundog Tours in Jasper for wildlife, skytram, sightseeing, and canyon tours! Please note, the weekend after our event, is Labour Day in Canada (and the U.S.) and it is a VERY popular holiday weekend. If you are thinking of visiting Jasper and booking a tour, you need to move on this sooner rather than later! If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Sundog Tours or we can connect you with our friends at Explore Edmonton.
