Drove along here a few times, took our time, stopped frequently and saw beautiful scenery and wildlife. We were lucky enough to get to see caribou, mountain goats and black bears. Don't miss it!

Take your time, relax and take pictures. Probably the most scenic drive you will ever have in your life. Tip: do not plan to take pictures in the way back as I did, it was raining. Take your pics right on the spot.

He tour group did a great job. You visit multiple sites and have a once in a lifetime chance to see some spectacle sites. Hurry up as the glaciers are melting and will be gone in a few years do to global warming.

We drove the parkway from Lake Louise to Jasper under overcast skies. While some of the views were shrouded in clouds, it did not detract from the beauty we saw before us. By the time we arrived at the icefield centre, the sun had come...More

Jasper, although expensive, is always a beautiful place to travel. Nothing can beat the scenery and landscaping.
