How far is the 2 places apart. I maybe visiting Jasper in a few months and I would like to know the best way of getting there (train? bus?) and how far in time and distance the 2 places are apart.

Vancouver to Jasper is probably in the range of 1200-1400 kms. Bus would probbly take around twenty hours! There are no flights to jasper, closest airport would be Edmonton, still 300 kms away. The passenger train route does go right into Jasper from Vancouver. Check out Via Rail, I am not sure on prices or schedules. Is there a reason you want to go directly to Jasper? If you have the time, you should check out the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia. If you like wine, lakes, beaches, and beautiful scenery! Also, banff is very popular, i pprefer it over Jasper. The Columbia icefields between Banff and jasper are very cool! Have a great trip, you will love it.
