Icefields Parkway

Standard

The drive from Jasper to Banff, through the Canadian Rockies, is one of the most beautiful drives in the world. According to the Icefields Parkway’s own website: “This is more that just traveling a mountain road; it’s a journey of the self and a celebration of protected wilderness grandeur.” I guess I can agree with that!

1. A Map

We stopped a number of times along the way. The first stop was at The Hike of Five Lakes. It is an fun, easy hike that goes by five different lakes all with different colors, beautiful. In the parking lot, we met a German couple who had just bought their vehicle and were on their way South. South as in South America! We exchanged stories and advice and gave them our Spanish textbook, some left over Costa Rican money and wished them a fantastic journey!

Not many people were on the road, so we mostly had it to ourselves. Beautiful, grand, spectacular – What more can one say!?

    Hi you Two!
    It was really nice to meeting you at the trailhead of the Five Lake Walk.
    Thank you very much for the Spanish book and the Colones.
    We already started our Spanish lessons :).

    The last 5 days we stayed in the Yellowstone Park which was really amazing.
    Now we are on the way down to the Arche NP.

    All the best for you!
    Tanja & Armin
