Take a drive on Icefields Parkway, a scenic Albertan road that connects Lake Louise with the town of Jasper. Built in 1940 and stretching for 230 km (140 mi), the highway runs along the Continental Divide and boasts stunning natural scenery. Among many scenic vistas, you can admire the vast Columbia Icefield and its array of glaciers, as well as the vibrant turquoise waters of lakes Bow and Peyto. Enjoy the views of imposing mountaintops, stop to see two picturesque cascades, and even spot a bear, elk, or moose along the way.
