Got a cabin at wagon 215C. Beds were neatly made and, although it is tiny as a sardine can could be, I went very well trough it. Meals are served in a special wagon by appointment. I suggest to take a snack and skeep lunch. Dinner n breakfast are ok.

I never took a train tour before & this was barely OK. The train was comfortable but there wasn't much scenery on this route and the one time we passed a pretty spot there was another train passing between us and the scenery. The bus ride back was interesting but the driver was a bit preachy about conversation & it wore a bit thin.



In order to make the most of your trip to Jasper National Park, we encourage you to plan ahead by booking accommodations and activities in advance. If you’re seeking a quieter expedition of the park, we recommend joining us in the Spring or Fall.



Extending over 11,000 square kilometres, it's the largest national park in the Canadian Rockies and part of UNESCO's Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks World Heritage Site.

Find your connection to this special place by discovering one or all of our five spectacular regions, exploring our extensive trail network, visiting our famous red chair locations or participating in Parks Canada led programs and events. (Hint: the winter months are pretty spectacular!)



The largest national park in the Canadian Rockies, Jasper is wild in every sense of the word. Its landscape covers an expansive region of rugged backcountry trails and mountainous terrain juxtaposed against fragile protected ecosystems as well as the world-renowned Columbia Icefield. It’s also chock-full of wildlife, home to some of North America’s healthiest populations of grizzly bears, moose, and elk along with thousands of species of plants and insects.

We did this trip this past September and absolutely loved it. I think one of the reasons we loved it so much was that we were able to sit in the viewing car and had amazing views the whole trip. Unfortunately there is no way of knowing if you will be allowed up in the viewing car until the day you are going. We just got lucky and there were only 2 "regular" passengers who get preference in sitting up there. We had a great guide (Chuck) who picked us up at Dunster and drove us back to Jasper, stopping at an amazing waterfalls and the Mount Robson lookout. His knowledge and passion for Jasper was great, and we learned so much. I can certainly sympathize with anyone who does this trip in the regular seating car though as you would pretty much only see the trees you are passing and not the amazing scenery.

Rode the train from Jasper to Dunster. Not much offered in regards to narration- but our guide Sean who dropped us off at the station and then picked us up at Dunster made it so worthwhile. He was knowledgeable and shared great stories with us. His love of the outdoors and passion for what he does was quite evident. Thank you, Sean, for the stops on the way back to Jasper and for your friendliness!



I have ridden trains all my life and at one time they were on time but if you are determined to be on time, stay off this train. The freight trains have the right-of-way but the food and views from the dome car are worth sitting on the side rail for hour
