During the summer months, we get a lot of families vacationing in Banff, Jasper and surrounding Canadian Rockies destinations. Families love to vacation here because there are plenty of activities for kids and adults alike. These are three of the mountain man’s top recommendations for families vacationing in the Canadian Rockies.
Cool down on a pleasant summer day by hoping aboard a rafting trip. For the adventurous family, whitewater rafting on the Athabasca River is a great way for everyone to enjoy themselves. Jasper Vacations offers rafting packages designed to fit your families needs. Choose between a 2 or 3 hour trip on Class II rapids, perfect for youngsters and enjoyable for adults. Riding the rapids is also a great way to catch some wildlife sightings on the banks of the river. Keep your eyes open for bears, elk, big horned sheep and eagles.
Hiking up the giant Canadian Rockies peaks can be a bit daunting for little legs, so instead of missing out on awesome views, take the Jasper Tramway to the top of Whistler Mountain. Jasper Vacations provides round trip tours from designated spots in Jasper which also includes the price of the tram. Once you reach the top, enjoy a picnic lunch with your family as you explore the boardwalks and trail networks on the peak.
Lake Minnewanka Cruise
Banff National Park houses some of the most beautiful lakes in the Canadian Rockies. With the trip offered by Jasper Vacations, you get roundtrip transportation to Lake Minnewanka and a picturesque cruise that everyone in the family will enjoy. Not only will you see towering mountains, but keep your eyes peeled for native wildlife such as bears, big horned sheep and eagles.
