(Banff-Jasper from Calgary) 416kms
You are in Calgary, you've just picked up your campervan at the Wicked Campers depot and you're wondering where to go... Simple. Go to the Alberta's Rockies and drive from Banff to Jasper! If there's one road trip you absolutely must do in Western Canada, it’s this one. You will fall in love with the amount of untamed wilderness, the majestic mountain peaks and emerald-coloured lakes. Start your journey in Banff and its national park, the oldest Canadian national park, and discover why it's one of the top Canadian destinations for backpackers, families, old people, fat people, cool people and normal people. After Banff, head towards Lake Louise and jump in the coldest water you will ever swim in - do it, I dare you! Then, drive north on the Icefields Parkway find a few camp sites, go hike for days, see the fauna and flora of the Rockies and go create another amazing memory.
Highlight: I will be cheesy and say that the whole trip is the highlight. You will see spectacular scenery, wildlife in their natural habitat and even be able to take a picture like the one above. This road trip is unmissable.
