Ride to the Top

About 10 minutes from downtown Jasper is a ride to the top of a mountain that is must for every tourist! The Jasper Tramway is the highest and longest aerial tramway located in Canada. It was built in 1964 and goes to a height of 2,277 m above sea level in seven minutes.

Visitors have unprecedented views of six mountain ranges, glacial fed lakes, the Athabasca river and the scenic mountain town-site of Jasper.

The “Jasper Tramway Experience” is a 3,000 foot ride.

This is time on top of the world
