Whether you have a day or a week to spend exploring the sights along the spectacular Icefields Parkway highway, this combination map and guide will help you make the most of your time. Like our much-loved hiking maps, the Best of the Icefields Parkway map features detailed cartography and is printed on waterproof and tear-resistant paper. The Best of the Icefields Parkway map shows all viewpoints, picnic areas, trailheads, campgrounds, hostels, lodges and other services along the Icefields Parkway, while the descriptions in the guide point you to the best of these – the best viewpoints of mountains and lakes, the most interesting points of interest and exhibits, and the best bets for spotting wildlife such as moose, bighorn sheep and mountain goats.
Also included are short descriptions of the ten best walks and day hikes along the Icefields Parkway—from the short stroll to Peyto Lake Viewpoint to the rewarding hike through alpine meadows to Helen Lake. To make it easier to plan your day, we’ve also provided information about campgrounds, lodges, visitor centres and other key services along the Icefields Parkway. A mileage chart, area map and elevation profile complete the map.
