9 Things you MUST See & Do in Jasper National Park (1 day itinerary)
Jasper has been on our bucket list for as long as I can remember and after finally visiting the National Park myself, I can say that yes, Jasper does live up to the hype. There re so many epic things to do!
Visiting in May has its pros and cons. May was totally empty and had no crowds which means you never have to worry about all the Jasper nuances like waking up early to find parking, campgrounds filling up, and sheerly the crowded trails. The only bummer was that being early in the season, most of the trails were still snowbound. If you're not the kind of person that wants to hike to the top of every peak then May is the perfect time for you to visit however if you want to hike ore, consider visiting in the midst of summer of fall.
Here are the Top 9 things you must do in Jasper National Park (PLUS you can do all these things in 1 day!):
1. Explore the scenic stops on Icefields Parkway
2. Hike Parker Ridge and/or Wilcox Pass
3. Hike onto the Toe of Athabasca Glacier
4. Take a photo in front of Mount Christie (Can bee seen when looking south near the Athabasca Falls of the 1A)
5. Hike the Valley of 5 Lakes
6. Walk around Pyramid Island
7. Grab food and drinks in downtown Jasper
8. Hike Maligne Canyon
9. Watch wildlife
Bear safety tips:
ALWAYS respect a bear's space and never get too close.
NEVER approach a bear
NEVER let bears get to human food.
ALWAYS store your food properly as well as any other objects with aroma
HIKING? Carry bear spray, be loud, and hike in groups
YOU are responsible for your safety around bears. Be aware of the bear and treat it with respect.
