Summer Wildlife Tour

The Athabasca Valley and her tributaries, the Maligne and Miette, are home to the greatest Mega-fauna sightings in the entire Rockies.

Getting out with me or one of my guides is not only the best opportunity to encounter the likes of Bear, Elk, Coyote, Sheep, Wolves and Moose but it's also a great opportunity to have some fun and learn a little bit about these creatures and the Mountain eco-system that supports them.

This is a driving based tour. You are permitted to exit the vehicle at designated stops to take photographs and access view points.

Yet another BUCKET LIST item. Whatever you do, don’t forget your camera!

Joe Urie

Owner / Head Guide

The Canadian Rockies are known to the Indigenous people in Alberta as the 'Shining Mountains' or the 'Backbone of the World.' Joe Urie, a Métis guide and owner of the Jasper Tour Company, knows these mountains as 'home.' Joe comes from a proud Métis family who have been living and guiding along the Athabasca River for a very long time. The first of his people arrived on these shorelines from the historical Métis Homeland, in what is now Manitoba in 1860. Joe considers the Athabasca River to be the blood in his veins and he invites you to experience the Rockies through his eyes. Whether it’s viewing their grandeur, hearing stories of the region’s First Peoples or learning about the wildlife that roam here, Joe's love and knowledge of the mountains, combined with his good nature and a damn good story makes the Jasper Tour Company your number one choice for adventure on any visit to the Canadian Rockies!
