“In and around Jasper National Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2005

My family found plenty to do in the Jasper area. Although some of the attractions are a bit expensive - the tramway and the boat trip on Maligne Lake to Spirit Island - I would definitely recommend them. There are great hikes in the area. We loved the hiking at Mount Edith Cavell and Maligne Canyon.

“Tonquin Valley Backcountry Lodge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2004

There should be a special set of adjectives reserved for places like Jasper National Park. Even words like "stunning" and "spectacular" don't really do it justice. If you stick to the roads, you'll see a lot of beautiful things to be sure -- but to really experience the park, you need to get into the backcountry. If the prospect of hauling yourself and all your gear by foot up mountain trails doesn't appeal, but you still want to get into the mountains, there's no better choice than a trip on horseback to the Tonquin Valley Backcountry Lodge. After a half-day trip on horseback, you'll arrive at a set of comfortable cabins nestled at the head of Amethyst Lake, with the Ramparts towering above. From there, your choices are your own: fishing on the lake; hiking through alpine meadows; or, for those whose idea of a perfect vacation is a little less strenuous, relaxing on the porch with a book and a mug of coffee. Chances are, you'll have the lake or the trails almost to yourself. After our experience at the lodge, we'd recommend it to anyone who loves nature and the outdoors.
