Itinerary
Stop At:  
Maligne Adventures
Your guide will personally greet you at your Jasper hotel where you will join a small group on board a comfortable minibus. As you meander slowly down the valley, you will gaze out large windows while passing stunning scenic views of the mountains and surrounding wilderness. You will visit seasonal locations, selected daily by your guide allowing you the best chances of seeing wildlife in its natural habitat. The evening is an ideal time for wildlife viewing with animals being most active in the late afternoon to dusk, so be sure to keep an eagle eye for anything that moves. Capture your memories through photographs from either inside the minibus or occasionally by a short walk at the discretion of your guide. Along the way you will discover valuable insights into the challenges of managing and protecting wildlife within the National Park. Your professional local guide will be eager to answer your questions, as they passionately share the magic of Jasper's wild side, bringing the stories of the animals to life. 95% of tours are successful at spotting wildlife. However, while encounters are frequent, everyday is unique. Jasper National Park is a natural environment and wildlife sightings cannot be guaranteed. The tour will finish with complimentary drop-off back at your accommodation.

This isn't for everyone
Randy_L
, Jul 2022
Although we did see a bear, a huge elk, a few mule deer and a Marmot, I would ONLY recommend this to people who have limited time, don't want to drive around or hike and explore on their own. This is an extremely passive experience in a sightseeing bus for 3 1/2 hours on main roads and public parking areas. I had assumed they would take us in off-road, restricted areas...not drive the main highways. As a family of four, we saw plenty of wildlife on our own just from exploring and hiking. 3 1/2 hours was a very long time for an active family that doesn't usually look for too many passive activities on an amazing vacation like the Canadian Rockies

I am really happy that I signed up for the Evening Wildlife Tour. It was a small group of about 15 people, all ages, in a van. It rained so Ross, our guide, altered his route to ensure we'd see plenty of wildlife. We spent about 15 minutes with a black bear, who was merrily chomping on dandelions. I expected to take photos but never thought I'd have the opportunity to take videos, too. We were equally as close for a long time to a gigantic male elk. We saw loons and a mother elk with a week-old baby. Ross was a wealth of information: it was the perfect combination of education and seeing wildlife in their habitat. I strongly recommend others to take this tour.

Hello Marcia Thank you for taking the time to review your recent Wildlife Tour with Maligne Adventures. I was great that Ross was able to track down a variety of animals for you to view and impart his vast knowledge of their habits and habitat. We will be certain to pass your comments on to him!

Ross is an amazing tour guide! His knowledge/narration made this tour educational and very personable. Always great to have a lifelong resident of Jasper to give some history about the area as well. We saw elk, whitetail deer, and sheep! So excited to hear about his YouTube channel coming out this winter (Wild Animals Wild Lands) as it will be a great way to learn even more about Jasper. Highly suggest this tour! Especially for those folks that do most the driving on your trip. Take a break, let the tour guide drive, and take in the scenery and wildlife!
