The Best Scenic Drives In Jasper

JASPER, ALBERTA — Planning on a scenic drive through Banff? Arriving to Jasper National Park by car? Here are the top scenic drives to cruise with the family.

Icefield Parkway. The Icefield Parkway offers some of the most breath taking and scenic views in the park. The road is easygoing and enjoyable, while the winding turns are as exciting as the wildlife and mountainous backdrop along the road.

Highway 16. Also known as the Yellowhead Highway, this is the main east-west road traversing through Alberta. It’s an easy cruise, and offers an inside look at the thriving towns of Spruce Grove, Edmonton, Elk Island National Park and Hinton to name a few.

Pyramid Lake Road. Enjoy the winding road that leads to Patricia and Pyramid lakes. Once there, take a stab at some popular activities like fishing, picnicking, boating and hiking.

Maligne Lake Road. This drive just south of Jasper is a premiere pick for those in search of wildlife and beautiful photographs. Don’t be surprised if you come across hikers and horseback riders, bears and deer.

Columbia Icefield Snocoach. Leave the driving to the professionals and hop on a coach. Buses are comfortable, relaxing, and will easily shuttle you to amazing spots like the Columbia Icefields.
