Banff National Park to Jasper National Park
Today’s journey through Banff and Jasper National Parks promises to be a highlight of our Rocky Roundup programme. Shortly after leaving Banff we visit the famous scenery of Lake Louise, one of the most photographed lakes in Canada. Afterwards, we travel north on the famed Icefields Parkway through a rugged wilderness flanked by dramatic mountain ranges. At the Columbia Icefield we board a specially constructed Ice Explorer to ride on the surface of the ancient Athabasca Glacier. Close to Jasper, you have the chance to go on an optional raft trip on the Athabasca River. Your experienced guide will point out natural and human history of as you raft through short rapids and stretches of calm waters. Overnight in Jasper.
