Bow Valley Parkway is a 50 km scenic route that connects Lake Louise and Banff.

 

Slow traveling has even more significant meaning here as in the meantime you cut the speed to 30 km/h. The drive itself offers spectacular views of the numerous mountainsthat lie in the area, as well as the opportunity to see wild animals. Although some of the wildlife that can be seen along the Bow Valley Parkway include elk, deer, bighorns sheep, wolves, grizzly bears, and moose, we were lucky enough to spot bears and Wapiti in the less expected places.

In Bow Valley Provincial Park, there are campsites in the dense forest, and every completely unobvious stop will offer better views and experiences than adventure movie marathons. In fact, after I while I see that these unforgettable scenes happen everywhere in Canada, regardless of whether on the trail or on the road.

Take a look at the pictures from the road trip through聽Bow Alley Parkway, and at the end of the post, I’ll highlight must-visit stops on the road from Lake Louise to Banff.

Hi, it's Natalia. I'm a visual storyteller who is traveling the world trying to explore like a local. I鈥檓 writing about the advantages of slow travel and journeys through Tuscany, Bali, Thailand, Portugal, Canary Islands, Scandinavia and more. I love design and architecture, I like to observe city life behind my camera lens, but it's the time spent somewhere on the road, among nature, that inspires me the most and that's where you'll find me most often.
