Full description
Journey along the famous Icefields Parkway, the undisputed world heavyweight champion of scenic roads, where jaw-dropping scenery is punctuated by more than 100 ancient glaciers, waterfalls cascading from dramatic rock spires, and frozen lakes set in sweeping valleys. Stop at the awe-inspiring Abraham Lake, where your local expert guide will show you where to find the lake's famous frozen ice bubbles, a natural phenomenon that you ice-skate or walk on. This tour also includes an easy (1.5km return) snowshoeing hike to the jaw-dropping Peyto Lake viewpoint, where you can gaze upon the vastness of the Canadian Rockies deep in the backcountry of Banff National Park. Along the way, make stops at all the well-renowned must-see spots as well as some spots that only locals know about.
