Driving the ICEFIELDS PARKWAY | BANFF TO JASPER | Athabasca Glacier Tour | Columbia Icefield Skywalk

In this episode of our cross Canada Van Life Road trip we wake up early to catch one last glimpse of LAKE LOUISE before hitting the road to JASPER NATIONAL PARK. The drive between Lake Louise and Jasper is known as the Icefields Parkway, and it definitely makes the list for one of the most beautiful drives we’ve done. And the excitement didn’t end there. In Jasper National Park we crossed something off our bucket list – WALKING ON A GLACIER!! We got to take an awesome explorer bus up to Athabasca Glacier, where we walked around the glacier and drank some crisp, fresh glacier water. From there we stopped at the Columbia Icefield Skywalk to enjoy the stunning views of the Sunwapta Valley and walk on the Skywalks Glass Floor!
