Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge
Discover the stunning surroundings of Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, located in Alberta’s Jasper National Park in the Canadian Rockies. From outdoor adventures such as golfing on Canada’s #1 Golf Resort Course to dining on seasonal menus with stunning mountain views, there’s something for everyone to enjoy at this AAA four-diamond, year-round luxury alpine resort.
A narrow 14 kilometre road brings visitors close to the mountain’s awesome north face, an area famous for interesting moraines, the Cavell Meadows, alpine flowers and spectacular views of Angel Glacier.
Old Fort Point is a prominent bedrock hill standing 130 m above the river. Rounded on its south side, cliffy on its north side, Old Fort Point is a classic roche moutonnée: a bedrock knob shaped by glaciers.
Surrounded by mountains, relax in the red chairs and snap a selfie with a gorgeous turquoise lake view. Lake Edith is a short walk from Lake Annette and offers a quiet beach and dock.
A spectacular stepping waterfall that has carved a deep limestone gorge out of the rock, made even more spectacular by a small island that divides the river.
The 23-meter Athabasca Falls is not very high by Canadian Rockies standards, but the size of the river makes it one of the most powerful falls to be found in the mountain national parks. In winter, you’ll find incredible ice formations.
A short drive past Medicine Lake you’ll find Maligne Lake, the largest natural lake in the Canadian Rockies. Once there head out on short walk via the Moose Loop or Mary Schaffer Loop trails.
Just 15km past Maligne Canyon is Medicine Lake, a unique body of water that vanishes each winter as it drains through a network of caves.
