LOCATED IN the Canadian Rockies, Jasper National Park is the largest national park in this rugged mountain range, and home to easily accessible glaciers, hot springs, and waterfalls. The town of Jasper makes for a gorgeous spot to visit, cruise around the shops, and enjoy an apres-ski.

And to get there? Edmonton — Canada’s Festival City — is your gateway, only a few hours’ drive away. Don’t miss the annual Deep Freeze and Silver Skate Festivals — at the latter, you can enter a real-life ice kingdom. All this and more makes up what just might be the best winter adventure anywhere.
