Road Trip to Jasper

The road trip from Calgary to Jasper can be done in under five hours. A real road trip though, is one where time is taken to experience the wonder and beauty of the journey.

Even on a gloomy day, Peyto Lake is stunning. Be sure to venture to the Upper Viewpoint.

Icefields Parkway is one of the worlds Top Ten Drives for a reason.

First of many wildlife sightings.

Maligne Lake

Book the last Spirit Island Cruise of the day so you can avoid the swarm of crowds. Or go on one of many stunning hikes around the lake. Bring a picnic lunch or dinner and enjoy!

Maligne Lake is home to these incredible creatures.

Keep a safe distance though and don’t approach wildlife, for your safety and theirs.

A pair of elk were battling, while the large bull was across the highway with all the females.

Fall is a stunning time to visit Columbia Icefields Glacier.

Bow Lake is a must stop along the Icefields Parkway.

Stay a night at Num-Ti-Jah Lodge.

You never know, you may wake up after a relaxing evening to a blanket of snow.
