The Beauty That Is Jasper

Fashionistas,

If you have been wanting to escape the urban bustle and cityscape for awhile, try to picture yourself in a getaway surrounded by towering mountains in the Canadian Rockies, and untouched wilderness and pristine lakes tucked into alpine valleys. Jasper National Park is the perfect getaway you are looking for. Nestled in the mountain town of Jasper, it’s very low-key and unpretentious; as a travel destination, it’s an outdoor sports haven, with activities such as mountain hiking during summer and skiing and dog sledding during winter. Jasper National Park is one of Canada’s oldest and largest national parks and in the old days, Jasper was once considered a sleepy town caught in the middle of a vast wilderness.

But more recently, it has become a popular getaway from urban life, and a magical place to reconnect with nature. The town of Jasper is a community where the locals welcome you as a long-lost friend. You will find all the comforts that you long for, from luxury hotels, to cozy cabins and if you feel like roughing it out, full-serviced campsites. Wildlife is in abundance, where it is common sight to find a herd of elk napping right on one’s front lawn.

Jasper is also considered as one of the world’s second largest dark sky preserve. A dark sky preserve, as the name implies, is a place where the night sky that is sufficiently dark and free from artificial light pollution to promote the study and practice of astronomy, as well as to protect the habitats of nocturnal wildlife.

By day, Jasper offers outdoor fun set against a backdrop of wilderness and at night, it turns into a stunning wilderness of stars.
