A Weekend Getaway
Travel Alberta // Mike Seehagel
Looking for that perfect weekend getaway? Look no further than beautiful Jasper National Park! It’s just close enough to make the drive, but far enough away to make it the perfect mountain escape.
Leave work behind! If travelling along the Icefields Parkway, make sure to leave enough daylight to take in the spectacular views. If travelling through Hinton, grab dinner at Rojo Marrón and enjoy delicious Mexican fare in a hometown atmosphere. When you arrive in Jasper, see the starlight of the Dark Sky Preserve. For a guided experience, visit the Jasper Planetarium.
Rise and shine! Start your day with Jasper’s Wafflato before gearing up and getting outside. Whether it’s a day on the slopes at Marmot Basin, taking a fat bike rental to Maligne Lake, or enjoying a Maligne Canyon Icewalk, there are so many ways to enjoy the outdoors in Jasper! Finish your day with a relaxing visit to The Spa at the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge to work out those muscles. Refuel on traditional Italian cuisine at Cassios, unique Korean dishes at Kimchi House, or authentic Greek fare from Something Else Steakhouse.
Join Orso Trattoria for a classic Sunday Brunch before setting out for a relaxing day in town. Purchase great outdoor clothing at Wild Mountain or classic Canadian fashion from Lolë. Find Canadian art at Mountain Galleries and local work at the Jasper Art Guild. Finish your day with another great meal from Evil Dave’s, The Pines or The Inn Grill before hitting the road to return home.
