Your park pass is your passport to adventure in Banff National Park and Jasper National Park.
It's your access to explore the heights of soaring peaks to the woodland valleys with winding glacier-fed rivers, and everything in between.
There are two types of Park passes - daily pass and discovery pass.
The day pass allows you access for the day you are visiting the park. Adult fees are $10.50 per day, per adult.
The Discovery Pass permits you to visit all of Canada's National Parks, including the national historic sites. It is approximately $145 for a family/group pass (max 7 people).
Buy at the Park Gates:
You can purchase your park pass at Banff East Park Gate (from Canmore & Calgary), Jasper East Park Gate (from Edmonton), Jasper West Gate (from Kamloops), Kootenay West Gate (from Radium Hot Springs, BC). Often there are longer lines at the park gates and we highly recommend purchasing your park pass online prior to your arrival.
