To travel the Icefields Parkway is to experience one of Canada's national treasures and most rewarding destinations. Stretching 232km (144mi.) through the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks World Heritage Site, this world-class journey offers access to a vast wilderness of pristine mountain lakes, ancient glaciers and broad sweeping valleys. This special travel route winds its way through two national parks, boasting a unique and irreplaceable landscape rich in history and natural beauty second to none.
For over 125 years, Banff National Park has provided visitors with a healthy combination of unspoiled wilderness, modern amenities and opportunities for active exploration. With such a breathtaking landscape, it’s no surprise that this UNESCO World Heritage Site has been nominated time and again as a “must-see” destination for travelers around the world.
Discover the protected wilderness surrounding Lake Louise, Banff and Jasper. There is only one place in the world that can genuinely offer spectacular natural mountain scenery, abundant wildlife, four-season recreation and world-class accommodation in a protected National Park setting.
One of the most gorgeous gems of the Rockies is Peyto Lake, a shimmering, large turqouise lake just north of Bow Summit. Massive peaks and the Wapta Icefield tower over the lake, shaped like either an angel, or a dog (use your imagination!). The most popular viewpoint of the lake is from Bow Summit: from a parking lot, a 10-minute paved trail leads uphill to a wooden viewing platform with an absolute stunning view of the lake and a forested valley to the north.
Once known as “The World’s Bread Basket,” Saskatchewan produces more than half of the wheat grown in Canada. But with its impressive network of parks, historical attractions and performing arts facilities, Saskatchewan is one of the fastest growing tourist destinations in Canada.
Take a relaxing drive along the winding country roads, and witness the diverse landscapes and the untouched natural attractions that make this province unique.
A popular tourist destination, the Qu'Appelle Valley captures the true spirit of Saskatchewan.
