DAY 2 LAKE LOUISE | PRISTINE WATERS
Drive through the Bow Valley to Johnston Canyon, with its sheer walls, waterfalls, tunnels and pools. Stroll the interpretive walkway before heading to glacially fed Moraine Lake in Banff National Park, where you experience an A&K-exclusive, hands-on lesson in wildlife and landscape photography from a professional.

After lunch, weather permitting, view the Spiral Tunnel and Kicking Horse Natural Bridge. (Breakfast, Lunch)
 
DAY 4 JASPER | THROUGH THE ICE FIELDS
Travel to the scenic Icefields Parkway for a full day of adventure. Set along the backbone of the Canadian Rockies and named after the area's sprawling ice fields, the parkway represents one of the world's great drives. See Crowfoot Glacier and the glacier-fed Peyto Lake. Stop at the massive Athabasca Glacier (7,000 feet) for an exciting ride across its surface on a specially designed vehicle.

DAY 6 BANFF | CANADA’S STUNNING FIRST NATIONAL PARK
Today, stop for photos of Athabasca Falls and Mount Kerkeslin as you return along the Icefields Parkway to Banff National Park — a UNESCO World Heritage Site established in 1885 as Canada's first national park.
