We spent a week going through Banff and Jasper and this was by far our favourite excursion. The views were stunning, even the drive was beautiful. A must see.

We misunderstood the pass requirements and were unable to get in. To limit the number of visitors per day, you must now get a unique pass for Edith Cavell. The national park pass will not be sufficient. Check with the visitor center in Jasper before...More
