Jasper Dark Sky Experience

In 2011, Jasper was designated as a Dark Sky Preserve by the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, due to its limited light pollution that creates ideal conditions for dark sky viewing. At 11,000 square kilometers, Jasper National Park is the world’s 2nd largest Dark Sky Preserve. In other words, Jasper is a magnificent place for star-gazing! As a Dark Sky Preserve, Jasper National Park has made a special commitment to protect and preserve the night sky and to reduce or eliminate light pollution in all its forms.

From December 15, 2018 – April 27, 2019 Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge will be launching the most unique “night club” in the world, the Dark Sky Experience!
