The Icefields Parkway in the Canadian Rockies between Banff/Lake Louise and Jasper is one of the most stunning mountain drives you'll ever see, with scenic stops such as Bow Lake, the Columbia Icefield and Athabasca Falls along the way. An Icefields Parkway tour with Brewster Travel Canada is one way to see it, and driving it yourself is another great option.

The Canadian Pacific Railway was instrumental in Banff's early years, building the Banff Springs Hotel and Chateau Lake Louise, and attracting tourists through extensive advertising. http://www.janetcampbell.ca/
