Banff to Jasper Drive & Hike

  • Travel the length of the Icefields Parkway, one of Canada’s national treasures
  • Hike the highlights of 3 National Parks: Banff, Kootenay, & Jasper
  • Spend an afternoon paddling the turquoise waters of Lake Louise
  • Explore vibrant mountain towns and stay with friendly Canadian hosts
  • Watch for wildlife: big horn sheep, bears, elk, caribou, and mountain goats
One of the world’s most scenic drives, the Icefields Parkway connects some of the best hiking in the Canadian Rockies. Stretch your legs on winding trails over glacial moraines, past imposing peaks, and along turquoise lakeshores. Then hit the open road to your next destination. From bustling streets to rock-strewn trails, Banff is the perfect introduction to the size and grandeur of this landscape. Enjoy delicious Alberta beef or bison with a side of Canada’s famous poutine (French fries with gravy and cheese curds) – the perfect reward to a day on the trail. Heading north, Lake Louise’s glacial waters beckon you for a paddle or wake up to catch sunrise over Victoria Glacier. Jasper, a railway frontier town and former fur-trading depot, is the perfect end to your Rocky Mountain escape; choose between a soak in the hot springs and a refreshing visit to the microbrewery.
