About this deal

I’d never have thought that a day of driving would turn out to be the highlight of my trip. But the journey south from Jasper to Banff along the 232 km (144 mile) Icefields Parkway is no run-of-the-mill road trip. You should get there when the sky is still a deep navy blue, but just bundle up and wait for the sunrise. If it’s clear enough outside, you should start to see the faint hues of pink and red slowly start to paint the mountain face (like the photo I took a few years ago below). By the evening, you’ll probably be REALLY hungry and ready for a hearty, delicious meal in a relaxed place. I’ve got the perfect place to you: Park Distillery. Their mission is “campfire-inspired meals” and they really do play the part well, from char-grilled meats and steaks to the amazing smell of campfire inside and around the restaurant.

Once you’re finished at Moraine Lake, you can either head straight to Lake Louise or stop at Trailhead Cafe for a coffee and a bite to eat. Their “The Cure” sandwich is amazing to start (continue?) your day. Calgary | Wingate by Wyndham Calgary Airport - Are you tired after a long flight and don't want to drive? Stay at Wingate hotel close to the airport. You can rent your car the next day, which will save you money. Take pictures at Bow Lake: Bow Lake is located right next to Icefields Parkway, so it is pretty easy to stop and take pictures. Visit the Jasper-Yellowhead Museum– Located in the center of Jasper, the Jasper-Yellowhead Museum discusses how Jasper’s community began, and provides important historical context to the area that’s now largely known for its natural beauty and adventure activities.

No matter where you travel, you should not miss one of Canada's most famous roads, which connects Banff and Jasper National Parks.

This account shows a westbound journey, note that the departure times have changed slightly since While often overshadowed by their northern neighbors (Banff and Jasper), Canmore and the Kananaskis area are, in my opinion, some of the most underrated adventure destinations in all of Alberta. Due to the microclimate and milder temperatures than the rest of the country, the Okanagan Valley with its countless wineries and fruit orchards became the Napa Valley of Canada. Purchasing fruit in the local markets along with wine tasting at one (or several) vineyards are some of the must-dos here.
