Biking with a Bonus
The family friendly 7.5-km combo of the Town Trail, Big Horn Alley and Trail 7 is minutes from Jasper bike rental shops. Follow historic train tracks and the Athabasca River to the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge. Double back for twice the fun or make it a loop. Tip: ride the shores of Lac Beauvert and stop for a hike at Old Fort Point.
At Wild Orchid Salon & Spa, exfoliations and aromatherapy add-ons enhance your massage or pedicure experience. Treatments are customized. “We help each client achieve the results they’re seeking,” says co-owner Heather Johnson.
Super Hero Sensation
Zipline face first 200 feet above terra firma; don’t forget to breathe (and enjoy the Roche Miette mountain view). At Zipline Adventure, adrenaline junkies ask for the cable to be loosened to create a base-jumping sensation, while anxious riders overcome nerves by riding tandem.
The seven-minute Jasper SkyTram ride to the top of Whistlers Mountain offers more than a pretty view. ‘Flight attendants’ tell guests about the history, geography, plants and wildlife of Jasper National Park and answer questions. This personal service is unique to Canadian Rockies sightseeing lifts. The on-board guides also work as tramcar operators.
