Day 5: Explore the Icefield Parkways and drive to JasperThe distance between Banff to Jasper is around 290 km and goes along the Columbia Icefields Parkway. The Icefields Parkways id referred to one of the most scenic highways and is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You can cover the journey in mere 4 hours, but it would be quite a shame not to make pit stops at certain places and explore the beauty. You can make stops at Bow Lake, Peyto Lake and definitely at the Columbia Icefield Discovery Centre. You can also take a tour of the icefields in a specially designed vehicle for driving over glaciers.A monster truck will transport you to the middle of Athabasca Glacier.
