Blast off with astronomy experts from The Jasper Planetarium for an exclusive dining and stargazing experience atop the Jasper SkyTram. Your SkyTram flight will take you nearly 1 km closer to the stars above, to the SkyTram Upper Station, where you'll have the chance to look through the most powerful telescopes in the Canadian Rockies, under the darkest skies in the Rockies.
Join a guided tour of the Solar System, learning about planets, galaxies, and constellations, and if you're lucky, you might even see a meteor or the Northern Lights!* You'll also have a chance to attend a special talk on Canada's dark skies or a quick workshop about how to photograph objects in the night sky with your DSLR camera.
Return flights run between 9.30pm - 10.30pm. We recommend dressing warmly.
*Weather-permitting. In the event the skies are clouded-over, an extended indoor portion will take place at the Upper SkyTram Station and we'll have the chance to explore the Athabasca River Valley (including the town of Jasper) through our telescopes on the mountain.
**Please arrive at least 20 min prior to your scheduled flight time.
