The Jasper Dark Sky Festival is a celebration of one of the largest dark sky preserves in the world. The experience itself is once in a lifetime, and when you go on our Canadian photography tour, you will never forget it. We will teach you night photography skills so you can capture the stunning night sky’s celestial beauty forever.

Dark sky preserves are areas that are kept free of light pollution for the purpose of astronomy. Jasper was named a dark sky preserve in 2011 by the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada because of its naturally low light pollution that lends itself to stargazing. Since then, the Jasper Dark Sky Festival has been held annually by
the Rocky Mountaineer to celebrate its dark sky preserve status.

Jasper National Park

Jasper National Park is 10,878 sq km of wilderness, making it the largest national park in the Canadian Rockies. It is located in Alberta and features such beautiful sights as glaciers, hot springs, lakes, mountains, and waterfalls. Over two million visitors have enjoyed the majestic beauty of Jasper National Park.
