Canada is the most beautiful place where you can simply rent a cheap car and take a road trip across the Canadian rockies. I started at Calgary and went to Lake Louise. I have written my previous article on Lake Louise. However, the most scenic drive all across Canada is from Lake Louise to Jasper with many things to do along the way. You can see mountains, lakes and beautiful nature on the way. Also since Canada is a wildlife reserve, there are occasional spottings of Grizzly bears and antlers on the way while you drive. Here's a list of things you can do on the way.

Lake Louise

This is literally the most photographed place in Canada and your trip starts from here. I have dedicated an entire article to Lake Louise and the things to do around here, it is definitely worth a shot and you will not regret it.

The Canadian Ice-fields- Athabasca glacier

The glacier comes along the way and cars are not allowed near it. There is a tour bus which needs to be booked in advance, it takes you up on the glacier and you can spend 20 minutes there in the mobile region. Most of the region is closed and you can't really explore it because glaciers end up melting and there are chances you can sink. However, the sad part is that the glacier used to be very long first but it has now begun to recede. You can also take a small hike on the glacier with another tour team. There is a special ice explorer to take you on the glacier. It is absolutely stunning. This will cost you around INR 5000

The ice field skywalk

There is a skywalk made of glass and you can see everything down. You can also see some waterfalls and the surrounding mountains grow in with snow and other beautiful things all around it. Even if you are scared of heights, this is definitely worth doing. I remember being on the skywalk with my mom because my dad has phobia, he did not come along. There was a man jumping on the skywalk trying to break it. It was crazy, but the skywalk is made of too strong glass which is unbreakable and can bear the weight of 8,000 people though only 400 are allowed on it at once. It is absolutely safe. This will cost you around INR 3,000

The Jasper cruise - Maligne Lake

The cruise we took in Jasper was the best experience ever. It is the second most photographed place in Canada after Lake Louise. The cruise is around 2 hours long but it is a speed boat. Also, the view from the island is amazing with mountains everywhere. It still doesn't beat lake Louise though. This will cost you around INR 2000
