From the top 15 places to see in Canada before you die, here is the glorious Banff National Park featuring the Ice Fields. I live 4 hours from here, and whether I travel to Jasper and then south east, or to Calgary and then north west, this is one of my favorite drives. I’ve worked, camped, backpacked and climbed mountains all through here. It’s truely worth making your way out here to see. Summer has great camping and climbing while the winter has great skiing either in Banff or Jasper. Hostels are very nice as well.
Forbes has pictures and descriptions of a few more places in Canada to see before you die, and I was pleasantly surprised that I had been two a couple of them, even having a great dinner and fabulous bottle of wine at the Pointe Restauraunt in the Wickaninnish Inn in Toffino.
