Welcome, this is the first stop on Kelowna’s cross-Canada route. Read through to the end to reach the next stop on the trip.

Jasper is a beautiful town just across the BC and Alberta border. It’s nestled in some of the most picturesque mountains along the Canadian Rockies. It started as a small railway town to support the trade of the Hudson’s Bay Company and the North West Company. It is now an idealistic tourist spot to get the full Canadian feel. Stay for a day or a week, you’ll be amazed at the scenery and fall in love with the small-town vibe.

Jasper is currently undergoing regeneration of their forests after issues with pine beetles. Please be extra cautious with any fires, follow all restrictions, and properly dispose of cigarettes or other flammable items. Please help us keep the forests growing.

Don’t let the name deter you, this bar is in the location of the Jasper classic Astoria Bar from 1927. It has now been revamped and offers pub food with a homey feel.

Baked Goods and Casual Dining

The Crazy Elk Cafe

This cafe located in the Lobstick Lodge offers a perfect grab-and-go setting if you’re in a hurry. With options like a bagel and lox, to a spinach and feta danish, a hot coffee and delicious meal is guaranteed.

Maligne Canyon Wilderness Kitchen

This gem is located along the Maligne Canyon hiking route. From the beautiful and relaxing atmosphere of the restaurant, you can venture out onto the trails. That is, if you can pull yourself away from the delicious menu.

Evil Dave’s Grill

Family owned and operated, Evil Dave’s leans into the name with sinfully delicious food and drinks. Don’t judge it by the name, the only evil thing here is you can’t try everything in one sitting.
