Icefields Parkway

Jasper National Park

See it and experience it for yourself

Connecting two Canadian national parks and linking Lake Louise in the south with Jasper in the north, the Icefields Parkway is one of the top 10 scenic drives in the world. The 230-km journey through the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains offers the opportunity to travel through protected wildlife habitats and to witness nature at work. The area, almost as if frozen in time, allows a glimpse of a place where early European fur traders, explorers, railroaders and mountaineers used to roam.
