Maps for the Jasper Area

Canadian Rockies - Explorer's Map and Guide

This is our most popular map and the one most recommended as an overview for anyone planning a trip to the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks - Banff, Jasper, Yoho and Kootenay. It also includes Mount Revelstoke and Glacier national parks, the Bugaboos and the Purcell Mountains further west.

29 of the best points of interest in the Rocky Mountain Parks are numbered and described. Mountain lodges, campgrounds, hostels, hot springs, golf courses, ski areas, picnic sites, visitor centres and highway viewpoints are labelled.

The mountains are also labelled with their name and elevation, if available, and glaciers are easy to pick out because they are shown in a different color.

On the back, you will find a map of Western Canada showing all the major highways, as well as maps showing the major arteries in the cities of Edmonton and Calgary. There are also townsite maps of Banff, Jasper and Lake Louise. Points of interest are numbered and described on the Edmonton, Calgary, Banff, Jasper and Lake Louise townsite maps. There is also a guide to campgrounds in Banff, Jasper, Yoho and Kootenay National Parks.

Pretty much everything that visitors to Canadian Rockies need to know - all on one map.
