JASPER NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA—Often when you visit a new town or city, you can put it in a box and say ‘Rome is a romantic city’ or ‘New York City’ is great for younger people’ for example. Jasper, however, can’t be put into a box. It is a huge National Park and you would have to be a soulless vampire not to fall in love with it. Jasper is also a very romantic place and a great place for a wedding or honeymoon. It is also the kind of place you can bring your pets for the time of their life. Most hotels are pet-friendly to some extent and this goes for kids too. The list of things to do as a family is endless. The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge fills all of the above criteria to a tee.
It is renowned as one of the most luxurious and unique hotels in all of Canada and it doesn’t let down. The great thing about the JPL though is that they never rest on their laurels and accept that they are the best. There are constantly packages such as ‘ski for free’ and ’99 ways to play’ that often prove too tempting to refuse. When it comes to kids, I really mean it when I say that there is almost too much for them to choose. Apart from the usual games room and indoor / outdoor swimming pool which kids will generally spend 90% of their time; there is also a daily list of activities and movies to choose from.
The grounds of the Jasper Park Lodge are so big that you can just enjoy a family walk with the kids and dog before coming back to relax in the sauna or play a game of tennis if the energy is still there. Regardless of the time of year, you can he guaranteed that there is a special on that will suit your needs whether you are coming for a weekend from Edmonton or a fortnight for golf from Europe.
