The communities of Banff and Jasper offer visitor experiences year round with special events and festivals that showcase the essence of Canadian Rockies culture. Whether we are celebrating Canada Day in our National Parks, opening days of the ski season, bears coming out of hibernation, art and photography, ice carving competitions or climbing and cycling competitions, we love a great festival and event. At the Mount Robson Inn in Jasper and Mountaineer Lodge in Lake Louise you will find accommodations paired with such events and festivals.
According to recent research people are looking to see three things when they visit the Canadian Rockies; a bear, a moose and a Mountie. That's a good list to start but those three things can be quite elusive. There is one exceptional place that has been amazing visitors for centuries - the Columbia Icefield. When you stand in front of these ancient glaciers, along the Icefield Parkway, time envelops you and awe leaves you speechless.
