Summer Multi-Sport Adventures in Jasper NP

With routes on land, water, and rock, Jasper is a paradise for the multi-sport enthusiast.

Description

Jasper gets a lot of attention for multi-day treks like Skyline Trail and Tonquin Valley, but there’s far more than hiking to do here. In fact, if you travel only on foot in this massive national park, you miss out on some other incredible opportunities. The wealth of trails, fire roads, waterways, and mountain scrambles allows for combining many modes of travel. With a bike or a boat, your adventure possibilities increase tenfold in Jasper, enabling you to go faster and farther, and get to places others can’t. Here are some of the best summertime multi-sport outings that the park has to offer.
