Crowfoot glacier and Bow lake mirror, Peyto Lake, mountain goats, Parker Ridge, Athabasca Falls, Icefield Parkway has them all. With good planning, you can enjoy some of the most breathtaking scenes of Canadian Rockies in one day.
If you are coming from a different country without snow, then it worth to visit the Columbia Icefields but otherwise save your snow-coach flares for a good dinner. It is just a big sheet of ice field, I am actually sick of it.
Hint: Make sure you fill up the car before you leave Lake Louis or Jasper.
