anada's Banff and Jasper National
Parks, as well as the Icefields
Parkway that connects them,
are world-renowned for their
magnificent mountain scenery,
and consequently are the focus of every
tour program that features the Canadian
Rockies. Yet, there are 13 other splendid
parks and historic sites nearby that are
sure to provide additional, unforgettable
vacation memories for visitors but are often
overlooked by those unfamiliar with the
area. Except as noted, all are easily accessed
by well-maintained, paved highways, and
admission fees are either very reasonable
or nonexistent.
As a result, tour planners are advised
to include as many of these lesser-known
facilities in the Canadian Rockies as fit
comfortably within their existing itineraries, if not enhancing programs that already
visit the region by adding a day or two in
order to provide their guests with even
more significant travel experiences.
First, there are six sites to the south
or east of the two big-name parks that
can easily be explored on the way to or
from Banff.
