This remarkable travel route winds its way through Banff National Park and Jasper National Park. You couldn’t drive the Icefields Parkway often enough to be anything but awed by it.
In the summer, the best time of day to travel the Icefields Parkway is the early morning for several reasons:
- the best opportunity to view wildlife
- less traffic
- able to find parking at the most popular pullout sites
- less likely to have other visitors "photo-bomb" your pics
If you are traveling on the Icefields Parkway from Jasper to Lake Louise, we suggest taking advantage of a deal at our sister hotel, The Mountaineer Lodge in Lake Louise. Stay consecutive nights in Jasper and then in Lake Louise and save up to 20%. Check it out here.
