IT’S A GOOD TIME FOR EXPLORING OUR OWN BACKYARD.
That’s been my approach for the past ten months – and what brought me (and my husband) to Jasper in September for a beautiful end-of-season camping trip.
We hiked. We biked. We sat by the fire, while elk bugled into the night sky.
And under the capable guidance of Estelle Blanchette from Jasper Food Tours, we explored Canadian cuisine with four “pods” of Alberta travellers.
You can read about our food tour in the Winter issue of Taste & Travel International – here or here.
The folks of Jasper have worked hard through the pandemic to welcome visitors in a safe, responsible – and always engaging – way.
And now that it’s winter, Jasper is MAGICAL.
Skating, skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing are just the beginning. There’s ice walks in Maligne Canyon. Winter wildlife tours. And Dark Sky gazing in the world’s largest astronomy park.
Starting next week, you can enjoy in-restaurant dining with your family once more – and Jasper Food Tours will be gearing up again to introduce you to some of the best.
(Note that things are booking up quickly for the Family Day/Valentine’s Day/Lunar New Year weekend ahead).
Here’s hoping that you can take time to get out and explore. There’s so much to love in our own backyard.
(In case you’re wondering – this was not a sponsored post nor did I receive any discounts, gifts, etc. from any Jasper tours or venues. I just like to share great people and places.)
