It’s that time of year where wolf photography is at a peak, and there’s no better place in the Canadian Rockies to find wolves than in Jasper National Park, where more than five different packs can be found near roads that traverse the park.
My favourite areas to look for wolves in Jasper include the Maligne Lake Road and Highway 16 west of town into Mt Robson Provincial Park. If it’s solitude and wolves that you desire, then try the Snaring River Road first thing in the morning.
And if you want to try the Icefields Parkway, check out my $10 e-guide to finding and photographing wildlife along this famous roadway: How to Photograph Wildlife in the Canadian Rockies.
Keep in mind that Jasper wolves are wild animals and that you often get better images of them using long lenses and remaining in your vehicle.
