This used to be my favorite place in all of the Canadian Rockies, but then they implemented the restriction to accessing down near the water and it’s not nearly as fun to explore. I remember just a few years ago going and being able to...More

What a hike to get to but well worth the steep climb camped there over night and it was so worth it . Seen the northern lights reflecting onto the lake itself felt like you were in a magical area.

You need to pick up a ticket the day before at the visitor center in town to do the road (or they might let you go anyway). The drive up is nice with a few stops along the way, then you end up right at...More

This was probably the highlight of our stay in Jasper for me, as once you have walked along the footpath to the viewing point you have a fantastic view of the mountains, the glacier, Angel Waterfall and the small glacier lake below. At present the...More

Freshly made icebergs floating in the milky water of the round pond by the blue glacier at the foot of magnificent black (covered with lichens?) walls of the mountain, with another glacier hanging from the top of the mountain giving birth to quite tall waterfall,...More

Beautiful glacier and wildlife views with a moderate hike. We saw a lynx off the side of the road on our way to the parking lot, and numerous birds and pikas on the trail.

We climbed up the mountain on a rough trail to the meadows. In our opinion it's not worth the effort. Better stay near the lake and walk up the Path of the Glacier Trail until the end of the rockpile. High chance of seeing marmots...More

I have a knee that gives me grief so I have to be careful about hikes that are steep. This trail is a bit steep, but gradual so that it is completely do-able - especially if you go slow. The reward is a view of...More

Travel to Edith Cavell is greatly reduced this year. To limit the number of visitors, every carload must have a pass to get in on any given day. Our guide had a permit, so we went in without an additional pass.

The walk to the first viewpoint of the glacier will be fine. Anything more I would suggest that you have to carry all the way as it is not suitable for a buggy

There a couple of levels. To the first point where you get a good view of the lake and glacier you could take a stroller and young child. Suggest that this should be the limit of your ambitions but worth doing Enjoy
