I ‘m convinced that driving the Icefield Parkway from Banff National Park to Jasper National Park is the most enjoyable time you could ever have driving.
Here’s a few pics from just north of Herbert Lake near the southern end of the Icefield Parkway in Banff National Park.
If staying in Banff townsite, as many people do, be aware that compared to the Icefield Parkway, a boring highway (Trans-Canada Highway) connects Banff townsite to the Icefield Parkway. It is still a great time though!
Jasper townsite, where most of the Jasper National Park hotels are, is minutes from the Icefield Parkway.
