JASPER, BANFF & LAKE LOUISE DRIVING TOUR APPS
JASPER NATIONAL PARK – GYPSY GUIDE
You could easily spend 3 days just exploring the beautiful drives in Jasper National Park, and that is without stopping to do some of the scenic hikes.
Jasper townsite is the hub of Jasper National Park. From that base you will want to explore Maligne Canyon and Maligne Lake, drive above the town to Pyramid Lake and spend a relaxing few hours at the Miette Hot Springs. The wildlife in Jasper National Park is abundant so always keep an eye out for elk, big horn sheep and grizzly bears.
You can drive these routes with the GyPSy Guide Driving Tour App in one very full day if you make an early start!

LISTEN TO SAMPLE COMMENTARY – JASPER NATIONAL PARK
Where does the tour start?
The logical place to begin the tour is right in the town of Jasper. The commentary includes all the necessary instructions to follow the tour route.
You can also join anywhere along the route. If staying at the Jasper Park Lodge, simply drive along the exit of the resort to join.
Is the Icefields Parkway included in the Jasper tour?
No, the Icefields Parkway is a major drive that spans 2 National Parks and has its own dedicated tour. The Jasper National Park Tour is designed to explore the best attractions around the Park that are not located on the Icefields Parkway.
What should I bring?
Its important to keep charging your device as you drive and we recommend using a DC cigarette lighter-style of charger. Plugging directly into the vehicle’s USB port is not recommended.
Once you drive away from the town, there aren’t many convenient places to eat. It’s a good idea to bring snacks and drinks with you.
Always bring a jacket as weather can change quickly in the mountains. Sturdy shoes are recommended if hiking.
I'm not from Canada - will I need data?
There is no requirement for any data or wifi network connection while you drive. The app only requires the FREE GPS signal to operate. You can leave your cellular data function turned off – the tour will still work.
