Experience the Jasper Tramway

The tramway climbs 3,000 feet to its drop off where visitors then walk up the summit of Whistlers Mountain for one of the most astounding views offered. It’s aerial views and high-suspended perspective present the type of breathless landscape the Canadian wilderness is famous for.
While riding the tramway, listen as the local guide explains the history of the tramway and FIY facts about Jasper National Park. It’s a tight but cozy squeeze, as 10 to 15 others marvel at the incredible views together.
