Spend today relaxing in Jasper, or join today's optional excursion, which will include a ride on the historic Jasper tramway - Canada's longest - to the scenic heights above, and a journey to Maligne lake, in its spectacular setting.
Today you'll travel along the Icefields Parkway, calling briefly at Lake Louise, where turquoise waters - frozen for much of the year - are set against the backdrop of Victoria Glacier. You'll continue onto Banff for a two-night stay.
