Fantastic day out in a great area

Tour exceeded our expectations, particularly in terms of wildlife encountered. Our tour guide , Kelli , was excellent with great knowledge of the area and animals. Trip started with two bull elk fighting right outside the tour bus and later, during short trek to Moose lake, there was a Moose browsing in the lake! Scenery in the whole area was great. Thanks to Kelli for a great day out!

Great trip

Everything was great - our guide Kelly was on time as agreed and was able to explain a lot about wildlife in the Jasper National Park during the tour. She was enthusiastic about everything we discovered, stopped at any time for a reasonable amount of time and we learned a lot about animals and nature in Canada. A successful day for everyone (adults & children). At Lake Maligne you could still decide whether to take part in the hike or stay at the restaurant. Highly Recommended. Be sure to eat the waffles on Lake Maligne!
