King Honeymoon Suite
During our stay at White Wolf Inn we opted to stay in the King Bed Room which was perfect for our needs and provided a very comfortable night’s sleep. With aesthetically pleasing decor, spacious and comfortable furniture we almost didn’t want to leave to explore the town and park.
This room is perfect for couples, families or business travellers with plenty of space for you to move around and relax in.
Furnished with a large window it provided plenty of natural light into the room. It comes with a king size bed, private ensuite bathroom with jacuzzi bath, two bedside tables, air-conditioning/heater, power points and a wardrobe to store all your luggage and clothing. There is also a large balcony with seating area, fridge, tea & coffee making facilities and table and chairs.

Explore Maligne Lake
Maligne Lake is a good 45 minutes or more from downtown Jasper and the drive to get there is part of the fun and beauty. It is a popular drive for spotting wild animals. The lake is beautiful and there is a boat house where you can rent canoes or kayaks. Plus a restaurant and gift shop right there as well for you to grab some food, drinks or souvenirs.
I highly recommend doing the Moose Loop Trail as this gives you the chance to spot a wild moose.
This is super easy to get to as the car park is literally a 5-10 minute walk from the main bridge to the island. Once on the bridge you are instantly surrounded by an impressive mountain range which actually look like pyramids at certain angles. Not to mention that the bridge is actually pretty cool and rustic too.
The Edge of the World
This is definitely one of my favourite spots in Jasper as it is hidden away from the hordes of tourists and directions are super vague on the internet on how to get here. The secret is to head to Marmot Basin Lodge, and once you reach the gates stop as you’ve gone too far. Head back to the sharp turning and as you reach the barrier on the way back down there is a trail just to the left. Follow this through the forest and you suddenly reach the Edge of the World! You’re welcome.
At 23 m (75.5 ft) in height, Athabasca Falls may not be the tallest waterfall in the Canadian Rockies but it is one of the most powerful, due to the sheer volume of water flowing into the gorge from the Athabasca River, fed by the massive Columbia Icefield. There are a number of platforms and walkways where you can safely view and photograph the falls. Located 30 km (19 mi) south of the town of Jasper, it is easily accessed from the Icefields Parkway using Highway 93A. Plenty of free parking and an easy stroll to the falls.
Edith Cavell Glacier
The turquoise meltwater of Cavell Pond sitting below the jagged summit of Mount Edith Cavell is one of the most beautiful settings in Jasper National Park. This is one of the few places where a short walk will get you up close and personal with a glacier. If you’re up to the challenge a trail branches off from the Path Of Glacier Trail to hike to the Cavell Meadows for more stunning mountain views. Stunning and breath taking at the same time!

This Inn is absolutely comfortable, homely, and the perfect place to stay while in Hinton. I am so glad that we chose to stay here for a few nights – it’s the most relaxing place in the town!
The room was fantastic, we had a super comfortable nights sleep and really enjoyed the decor which makes the room really interesting especially when you throw in the views of the mountains. The location is perfect to be near to Jasper and the staff are so friendly, they can honestly not do enough for you to make your stay that little bit more comfortable than what it already is.
You will want to spend longer
The town is very sleepy, but on the outskirts, remains the beautiful surrounding mountains and countryside which are absolutely breath-taking and you will find yourself soaking them up the whole time you’re there. When you throw in the close proximity to Jasper National Park, waterfalls and all of the other attractions you are onto a winner!
If you are in Hinton, Canada, and you want to have a unique relaxing Canadian experience, I would highly recommend White Wolf Inn.
