In 1922, a stately rustic lodge surrounded by private wilderness cabins officially opened its doors to travelers who reached the lakeside location where Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge now resides.
Train travel provided by the Canadian National Railway made Jasper a unique mountain escape with unexpected connection to the vast wildlife and grand scenery.
One hundred years later, Canada’s Luxury Cabin Experience set the stage to celebrate millions of memories made for visitors around the world with a series of exciting events and enhancements that are sure to continue the memory-making for years to come.
On June 28, 2022, cut the cake and kick off the Grandest of Celebrations with Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge’s Centennial Series, beginning with the newest summer event, Symphony Under the Sun, a festival of melodies that unites visitors on the shores of Lac Beauvert and features the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra. The Grandest of Parties and Festivals continue all year long with Signature Events offered throughout the year to spring 2023.
To enhance the resort experience, Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge is completing a $1.4 million capital project that intimately reconnects guests to the local landscape and historic viewpoints overlooking Lac Beauvert – an exciting centennial refresh.
