Banff National Park is Canada’s oldest national park.  Located in Alberta, Canada, it is truly an amazing place.  Enjoy picturesque scenery, quaint little mountain towns such as Banff, and lakes that are so blue that they don’t even look real!

Glaciers and Icefields.

There are many glaciers that you can see while driving but most of the better ones are located halfway through the park [head north].  There is also a free glacier museum and place to observe the huge icefields.

Driving.
  You’ll enjoy the scenery without ever leaving your car.  If you’re just driving through, you do not need to pay the entrance fee, but if you plan on stopping anywhere, you will need to pay for a pass to park the car.  A day pass is CA$19.60 [about US$20.34] but passes can be purchased for individual days, a week, a month, a year, etc.
