Welcome to Icefields Parkway Region!

Between Jasper and Lake Louise, visitors can explore a series of ice-age old glaciers that form the Icefields Parkway. It is possible to drink-in the views of the six massive glittering white glaciers at Columbia Icefield and then quaff from its pure water run-off. These colossal rivers are slowly retreating and the subsequent meltwaters feed into three different oceans, a distinction the Icefields share with only one other spot in the world. A succession of rivers, lakes and foothills extend east toward David Thompson Country—a region named after the great Canadian explorer and geographer who mapped the area in the late 1700s. Farther east are two towns with historical significance. Nordegg was once the home of an important coal mine and Rocky Mountain House was an integral fur trading post. The region has remained largely unchanged, making it a popular destination for hiking and backcountry camping. Outside of the national park, regulated fishing and hunting also attract many to the area as the unspoiled nature of the region has allowed local wildlife to thrive.
