We like hiking along the steel catwalks up Johnston Canyon – it’s exhilarating to feel the spray above the thundering waterfalls!

Where to stay in Jasper

For accommodation, perhaps splurge on the Jasper Park Lodge. Along with the Chateau Lake Louise and Banff Springs Hotel, it’s one of the “wow” places to stay in Canada’s Rocky Mountains.
