Length
Approx. 587-km trip.

A visit to Banff National Park would be incomplete without experiencing the scenery on the Icefields Parkway and Bow Valley Parkway. Linking Banff with Jasper, both roads offer options to stop at the viewpoints or park at the many trailhead parking areas and take amazing pictures and spot wildlife. Soak in the turquoise shades of Lake Louise, Moraine Lake and Peyto Lake. Take a hike to majestic waterfalls or pedal through dramatic mountain peaks and vast sweeping valleys.

To experience the Rockies on two wheels, check out the Rocky Mountain Legacy Trail.
