For centuries, man has looked to the heavens for answers. Farmers observed the skies to predict the next harvest. Sailors scanned the stars to find their way home. Astrologers from various cultures studied the movements of galaxies to prophesise the fate of the world.
Scenic’s handcrafted land journeys through Western Canada
take you to Jasper National Park, one of the world’s largest dark sky preserves for an exclusive Scenic Enrich
experience. Guided by expert astronomers from Jasper Planetarium, and complemented by a delicious twilight supper, it will be one of the most magical experiences of your life.
We met with Jasper Planetarium’s Co-Owner and General Manager, Peter McMahon for an exclusive chat, to gain his insights into the cosmic world and all that he has planned for Scenic guests in 2022. Peter is a multiple award-winning science and space writer, who has authored articles for such publications as Frommer's, Discovery Channel online, Canadian Geographic and numerous astronomy and travel magazines.
