Not far from Jasper and there is a car park right there, so you have no excuse to miss this incredible wonder of the natural world.

Hi Sarah, So glad you are taking a trip to Jasper and the Canadian Rockies! You will surely have a wonderful time. The entire region is my all time favorite area for scenic photography in all of North America. As far as your choices of places to see while in Jasper, there are so many choices and it depends on the weather as well as what you like to do. Lake Beauvert is in the middle of several cabins and other accommodations and near the town of Jasper itself. From there you can get some nice vistas of the surrounding mountains. It should not take too long to visit there, so you could spend some time there and do some other things. If the weather is cloudy and/or a bit rainy, Maligne Canyon would be a good choice as I think the best lighting there for good photography of the water is nice and even lighting when it is cloudy. If the weather is nice and clear, I highly suggest taking the Jasper Skytram up to the top for some spectacular views of the area. You can also hike some trails there on top if you like. Also, as you drive into Jasper along the Icefields Parkway, there are several places to stop there for some great views of the area. Finally, if you have time, Highway 16 (Yellowhead Highway) heading east from Jasper to the park's east entrance has several places to stop at for some incredible vistas and some great reflections in the rivers and lakes of the surrounding mountains. Best times of the day for this area is in the early mornings and late afternoons/early evenings. You also might see some elk, mountain sheep, deer and other animals along this route at those times. Feel free to ask any other questions. Although I do not live there, I absolutely love the area and have visited many times over the years.
