Small Group Tours

Icefields Parkway Tourbetween Banff/Lake Louise and Jasper

Your tour guide will pick you up from the location of your choice in Canmore, Banff, or Lake Louise. Please bring your luggage with you as this is a one-way tour. The Icefields Parkway is known as one of the world’s most scenic drives so you don’t need to venture far from the main highway to see some spectacular sights.

From May to October, the tour will have many scenic photo stops along the route to Jasper including Bow Lake, Peyto Lake, Crowfoot Glacier, and Athabasca Falls.

From December to March, the Icefields Parkway sees much less traffic and turns into a beautiful drive of solitude and wonder. The roadside stops feature endless views of snow-capped mountains and ancient glaciers that make it a true winter wonderland. During this time, you’ll have stops along the way at Bow Lake, the Athabasca Glacier, and Athabasca Falls.

Pick-ups for this tour typically range from 15 minutes before, or 15 minutes after the listed start time in Banff, or 1 hour after the listed start time for Lake Louise. Your exact pickup time will be confirmed a few days prior to the tour as the timing is dependent on where the other guests in your small group are staying.

Top 3 Reasons to Book Our Small Group Tours

  • You'll pay large group tour prices, for a small group experience.
  • Our small group tours are only made available to the public when we have chartered our guide services to clients of Canada Rail Vacations and all seats have not yet been filled. By joining one of these exclusive group tours, you'll get a more intimate tour experience, and get to see more of Banff than would otherwise be possible when traveling with a larger group as similar tours in the area may include up to 50 people.
  • Many of our tours align well with Rocky Mountaineer arrivals or departures in Banff. This tour offers a great way to see the highlights of the Banff townsite and surrounding area, particularly for those who only have a short stay in Banff booked and are without their own vehicle.
