One of the highlights has to be a walk in the Columbia Icefield Area, one of the visited glaciers in Jasper and it won't take you long to see why, it's stunning!

The turquoise lake will have you pinching yourself in disbelief that somewhere could be this perfect.

Day 9: Glacier National Park & Kelowna Return to British Columbia via Glacier National Park for which we only have one word: spectacular! The aptly named national park has 26 glaciers dotted around, some of which you can see from the trails.
