Sometimes it’s hard to estimate driving time by just looking at a two-dimensional map. It doesn’t take into consideration topography, traffic, climatic conditions and so on. Here are some
approximate driving times for some of the more popular routes in Western Canada:
Plan on some extra time when driving along the Icefields Parkway; there are lots of beautiful sights along the way and wildlife on the side of the road. The nominal 3-hour drive from Lake Louise to Jasper easily can take the better part of a day.
Wherever you go add an extra 15 to 30 minutes if you’re planning on traveling during peak season (July and August). Highway 1 especially can get pretty crowded as you approach Lake Louise, and the road narrows down to two lanes.
