To travel the Icefields Parkway is to experience one of Canada's national treasures.
The Icefields Parkway is a paved road that runs along side the Continental Divide. It stretches 230 km (142 miles) between Lake Louise and Jasper.
You can access the parkway from two Alberta gateway cities, Calgary and Edmonton. There is an international airport at each city.
The high altitude parkway splits Alberta and British Columbia and is the watershed point at which all water flows either west or east.
