The Icefields Parkway is a legendary stretch of Highway 93. Running for 230 km (142.5-mile), the route links Lake Louise in the south with Jasper in the north.
The scenic route runs through both Banff and Jasper national parks, traversing the Canadian Rockies. It also runs near the Columbia Icefield, hence the route’s name.
Along the route you’ll see snowcapped mountains, glaciers, alpine forests, vistas that go on forever and, perhaps, some of the local wildlife.
Excellent trip. Friendly, knowledgeable guides. A very pleasant experience. Would contact Viator in the future.
It was excellent.
The driver was friendly and gave lots of interesting information and was helpful all day.
It was as enjoyable as interesting. Thankyou.
You need to purchase a Parks Permit day pass to drive along the Icefields Parkway, either from Lake Louise, Jasper or Banff.
Driving or organized tours is the best way to experience this legendary touring route.
