Things to Do in Jasper

Enjoy the wildlife, nature and sightseeing

Tekarra Lodge benefits from a fantastic location within Jasper National Park – the largest national park in the Canadian Rockies, with over 10,000 square kilometres of stunning natural beauty. There are countless things to do and wildlife to see within the Park, from the waterfalls of Maligne Canyon to the iconic Athabasca Glacier. Enjoy a leisurely horseback ride, an invigorating hike or an exhilarating rafting excursion. Whenever you visit, be sure to book a trip on the Jasper Sky Tram, and treat yourself to remarkable park views. Afterward, take a stroll through downtown Jasper, where historic buildings house modern boutiques and cafes. If you’re lucky enough to be in town for Canada Day in July, you’re in for a fun-filled celebration, complete with evening fireworks. Looking for a little zen? Visit the Lodge for one of our weekend yoga retreats, held twice a year.
