Although our tour guide provided an excellent overview of Jasper, the friendly folks at the Information Centre provided a wonderful perspective. There are many sites that may be otherwise overlooked. For example, there’s a bike/walking trail across the railroad tracks, but take care: it leads to the base of the mountains and there is abundant wildlife. Within a block of... More

When we travel we like to get to the local Information Center. The Jasper Center was rather large building and full of information surrounding the Jasper Area. The people were friendly and informative. Across the Information center check out the train they have on display and totem pole.

Tip for this information center is to go when it is not so busy, that way the staff has more time to answer all your questions in detail. If you are going into the backcountry, this is a must stop and also registering for camping permits. Located at the center of town, it will hard to miss. You can information... More

Not only do we help people visiting the Park, we also have some useful information for the locals! It's nice to drop in to hear what the current trail conditions are like and to see if there is any bear warnings in the area. It's also great to come in to make backcountry permits and to get suggestions for other... More

Wealth of knowledge for so many things within the Jasper area. Maps, weather, notices of walks, guided tours, things to do, where bears, cougars, etc. were spotted, all kinds of things you will no doubt be interested in. Stop in!
