Your Wildlife guide is well versed in the history, geology, and ecology of the area and is happy to answer any questions you may have.

The Wildlife Discovery Tour is a van tour with minimal walking. Photos are usually taken from the inside the vehicle or on the ground at a safe distance from the animals. Jasper National Park is not a zoo but a wild, protected area. The types of animals seen on the tour depends on the season, the time of day, and the weather.
