The Icefields Parkway is a 232km scenic drive from Lake Louise to Jasper. Featuring snow capped peaks, more than 100 glaciers, waterfalls and turquoise lakes it’s definitely one of the worlds most beautiful drives!
The best way to experience this drive in all of its glory would to plan it so you can drive from Lake Louise and spend the night in Jasper. Unfortunately due to time restirictions this wasn’t possible for us, we never actually made it all the way to Jasper (next time!). Instead we spent one half day and one full day driving and exploring as much as we possibly could! I do like to stop at every single lake, viewpoint and waterfall I see so this does make it quite a slow trip but we did make it into Jasper National Park in the end with Athabasca Falls being our final stop before we had to return back to Lake Louise.
