The Icefields Parkway is considered one of the most delightful highways in the world. However, wayward Canadians do not agree with this opinion at all and consider this route the most beautiful ever.
Indeed, there are 230 kilometers of excellent highway stretching from the south to the north, along the eastern ridge of the Rocky Mountains, through an endless chain of snow-capped peaks and lakes like turquoise saucers, deep canyons and rapid mountain rivers, streams and brooks fed by gray-haired millennia-old glaciers. The variety of fantastic landscapes and the purest intoxicating mountain air will take your breath away.
The route will cover three national parks: Jasper, Yoho and Banff. We are going to travel on a relatively small area of these parks, in the Rocky Mountains, for 14 days, discovering the most wonderful season – the Indian summer. This is the time when the first snow may fall high up in the mountains, decorating the peaks with snow-white sugar powder, and the blue saucers of the lakes will reflect larches coquettishly trying on their new golden dresses.
