Imagine relaxing just off the Icefields Parkway with more than 6,500 in elevation? It’s amazing. This is one of the highest places in the country where you can go camping and you have to set a tent. Most people actually go because they want to see the Athabasca Glacier, surrounded by 11,000-foot peaks covered in snow. Hiking and wildlife watching are among the favorites.
