Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    These falls, just 30kms south of Jasper, were so picturesque! I absolutely loved them. There was a large volume of water when we were there in September. Clear, paved paths, with some steps, led to viewing areas at the top, middle and base of the falls. It was interesting to view the falls from these different angles, especially the canyon, potholes and downstream flow. It's about a 1 km out-and-back trail (15mins), but allow more time for admiring the scenery and taking photos! Athabasca Falls may not be famous for height or width, but the volume of water and background of forests and mountains create a stunning setting for these gorgeous falls. There were toilet facilities at the car park.

    Ben did a awesome job driving us to the glacier. I would recommend, it was once in a life time experience. It was much better then even expected. Everyone working here was so kind.

    Quick and easy to get to, these lakes are worth a visit if you are in Jasper. They are just a few kilometres along Pyramid Lake Road to the north of the township. Subalpine forests and rocky mountain peaks create a stunning background for these two beautiful lakes. The reflection of Pyramid Mountain in the waters of Patricia Lake is a photo worth snapping! The highlight of Pyramid Lake is a walk across the bridge to Pyramid Island. The lakes are a hub for a variety of recreational activities including camping, picnicking, hiking, boating, and swimming.

    I had an amazing time up the Skytram! Sophie (from London) did an amazing job at explaining all the facts as well as making us laugh! Offering to take photos as I was on my own and putting time in with people and taking photos at the top for me! Thanks again to the team! First time snowshoeing and in Jasper!

    It’s been maybe 50 years since I’ve been to a planetarium. Very enjoyable way to spend an hour. Guide was excellent and very upbeat.

    Such a fun evening.
    You are encouraged to have a drink at the bar and chat to the actors before the show begins. They are extremely welcoming and love to chat to their audience.
    The show is hilarious and you recognise and are familiar with each sketch as you’ve been doing exactly the same things throughout your time in Jasper.
    The warmth for this beautiful town is clear throughout their performance - who doesn’t LOVE Jasper?

    While the road is mostly very flat and well made, I did see two major accidents along the way. September was dry and the road smooth. Along the way there are many scenic places to stop, with mountain views, waterfalls, lakes. Food stops are not cheap, so it is better to stock up in Jasper or Banff.

    I was at Marmot Basin on Friday skiing mid mountain. Love Marmot for the runs and the warm friendly staff and patrons. That is until I ran into Joey, a ski instructor with snow school on Basin run. His customer service was appalling. Joey was instructing a group of about 10 people and did not care that he was rude to people outside his group. I would not recommend taking lessons from Joey. The ski hill is lovely and the majority of staff are great, friendly, personable and wonderful to deal with.

    I am honestly not sure how we ended up here for I am not really into taxidermy; however, the display is really well done, and definitely worth a visit if you are.

    Certainly one of the best experiences we’ve had so far on our Canada vacation. From start to finish we felt welcome, safe and, most importantly, we had lots of fun!
    The scenery is second to none, and the river rafting route was so beautiful. Mountains and rafting together, what’s not to love! Strongly recommend.
    Biggest shout out goes to Josh who was our rafter. He captained the raft wonderfully, made it fun, gave us interesting facts about the surrounding country side and also made us laugh because he created a fun environment. Jordan who ran the trip was also tip top, making us feel welcome at the top and provided comprehensive safety guidance. Final compliment goes to Maxime in the office who made our day by helping us swap our session. Without her help and kindness we wouldn’t have experienced this memorable afternoon.

    It was great, we saw bears, elk, eagle and dear, and more importantly, we learnt loads about local ecosystem and the challenges Jasper is facing - from pine beetles to wild fire! Kate is very impressive - how they drive and talk and spot animals I do not know!

    This place was really nice. When I first found out that I was going on holiday to Canada I was told some places to bear paws. I really wanted one and when I came to this candy shop with my family I was so excited that they had some. I had one Grizzly Bear Paw and it was so good! The other people I was with had some delicious flavours of Ice Cream! A solid four stars from Ellie Reviews!

    It was a last minute decision to take the Mile 5 rafting trip. Yes - it is late in the season, no - the water isn't challenging (Class 1 with a little Class 2), but boy was it a FUN time! Kate (the Great) was an excellent navigator, SUPER witty and made the trip most enjoyable for our family. I know that there are several rafting companies doing the exact same thing, but what impressed us about Jasper Whitewater Rafting Company was the cleanliness of their wet suits (and that they were dry to put on), their attention to safety protocols while instilling humor and the fact that they all seemed to genuinely enjoy their jobs and their colleagues. Pre-trip communication was answered almost immediately. Pick-up and drop out points were easy to get to and very close to town. Plenty of parking. Congratulation Anaja, Kim, Erin and Kate for giving the people you tour such a fun, memorable and safe experience! You guys were one of the highlights of our 2 week trip! (PS Lunch recommendation for The RAVEN was EXCELLENT! If you haven't tried the Baklava Cheesecake...do it)
