Day 2: Full day in Jasper
Start the day with an invigorating hike as your guide takes you high up into the alpine for a seven-kilometer round trip up above the tree-line, with views of glaciers, mountain peaks and blue water lakes. The highlight for this afternoon is a food tour of Jasper, which takes you to four different local restaurants for handpicked dishes, each paired with a drink and the area's stories and tales along the way. After this multi-course dinner your guide takes you up Maligne Lake road for sightseeing and with a bit of luck some wildlife viewing. Cap off the day at sunset by the shore, with the majestic peaks mirrored in the smooth waters of Maligne Lake.
Day 3: Jasper to Edmonton
Breakfast in style at the 5-star Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge overlooking Lac Beauvert. Then head east past Pocahontas up to the Miette Hot Springs. Starting on the trail next to the pool, the guide takes you on the four-kilometer hike up to the summit of Sulphur Skyline. The reward for your peak experience is the spectacular panoramic view of the surrounding mountains. Before you leave the mountains behind, there is one more fun thing to do, a stop at a local craft beer brewery for a farewell drink. Arrival in Edmonton is approximately at 8:00 pm (breakfast and craft beer tasting included).
