The Waters of Jasper

By Warren Joseph


Behold, the legendary Jasper National Park. Among the world’s finest. Where you can feel the raw energy of roaring rivers cutting canyons into the Canadian Rockies or sit back and relax on the calm water of tranquil mountain lakes. Views so astounding, it could leave you speechless. For minutes. Hours. At silent peace with the world.

Maligne Canyon

Jasper’s deepest canyon is a must see for any tour, though the hike can be difficult for those who wish to visit in person. The Maligne River has been carving this canyon out of the limestone of the Canadian Rockies for millions of years.

Stunning Waterfalls

Jasper’s waterfalls are always flowing strong in the spring, when the rivers are full with meltwater from glaciers and snow. It’s a spectacular time of year to visit this land of wonders!

Tranquil Lakes

Jasper National Park has so many lakes it would be difficult to count them all. There are over a hundred that have been named, but all offer the clear fresh water and magnificent scenery that Jasper is known for.
