1. Venture Maligne Lake on a Boat Cruise

Adventure up the Maligne Valley to witness the wonders of Jasper on the Maligne Valley Sightseeing Tour. On this tour, you’ll embark on a guided walk at the Maligne Canyon, then experience the “disappearing” Medicine Lake before reaching Maligne Lake. While taking in the spectacular views of Maligne Lake, guests will have the chance to join their SunDog guide on a boat tour of the lake on their way to the world-famous Spirit Island.

2. Embark on a Canoe

Take a canoe tour of Pyramid Lake to explore unique views of the surrounding snow-capped peaks. Whether you’re embarking on a canoe adventure as a couple, with friends or with family, SunDog Tours provides guests of all ages with an unforgettable experience.

This tour is perfect for guests who want to start their day paddling through the water, or end a long day of hiking by taking the chance to relax and enjoy the views. While on this journey, guests have the opportunity to see wildlife in their natural habitat. Some of the common animals spotted on this tour include beavers, loons, osprey, and muskrat.

3. Rent an E-Bike in Jasper National Park

Jasper bike trails offer an experience like no other, and the best way to adventure them is on one of SunDog’s Pedego electric bikes. E-bike rentals are a hassle-free and coinvent way of transportation, allowing guests to venture through scenic pathways within nature. Instead of witnessing the breathtaking views of the Rocky Mountains from within a vehicle, immerse yourself in the park’s sights, sounds and smells first-hand while exploring on a bike.  

SunDog Tours offers Pedego bike rentals for up to eight hours and includes locks that can be used when stopping for food or a hike. The bikes also come with helmets, lights and a bell to ensure all guests have what they need to stay safe while riding. Don’t have a bike rack for transportation?

SunDog Tours offers guests the option for their bike rentals to be dropped off, ensuring everyone is able to experience the fun of Jasper’s picturesque bike trails.
