Stretching for about 143 miles between Lake Louise and the town of Jasper, the Icefields Parkway (Highway 93) delivers more magnificent scenery. En route you’ll pass forests, river valleys, mountains with peaks reaching 10,000 feet and Peyto Lake, the bluest in the Canadian Rockies. The color results from how the fine particles of ground rock, called rock flour, scatter the sun’s rays. Bighorn sheep, elk, mountain goats and ravens can often be seen. Take your time driving this route in summer and stop for picnics and short hikes.
