What people are saying about Jasper
This was a great tour. Ryan, our tour guide, was great, and he knew a great deal about the flora & fauna of the Canadian Rockies. We saw wapiti (elk), timber wolves, coyotes, osprey, a bald eagle... the only thing we didn’t see was a bear, but Ryan did his best to find one. Ryan was amazed that we saw the wolves, and said that this was the first time this year that he’d seen them himself. This was a truly nice way to see the area without needing to drive. We had ample opportunities to get off the bus for photos. We would recommend this tour for families and people of all ages.
My wife was concerned about the safety of this trip. The crew made sure we had fun, we ran some rapids and my wife became more comfortable being on the raft. She wants to do another one, one that is a little rougher. Thanks for taking the time to ensure we had fun, felt safe and enjoyed the experience. Great trip for newbies and families.
Our diver and tour guide was a very capable and well informed young woman. She was passionate about the landscape and wildlife and did her best to show us as much as she could. She was friendly and approachable. She answered our questions fully and intelligently and offered insight into complex issues. Excellent
Great tour to do on your own or with others. Interesting guide and all the necessities are included such as transport, helmets, warm boots ( if you need them) and ice cleats. Wonderful way to explore Jasper trails in the winter.
Nearly 4 hours in a comfortable minibus with an exceptionally knowledgeable guide and assistant. Taken to sites where we saw mountain goats, longhorn sheep, cayotes, elks and deer. A definite addition to any visit to Jasper.
