此趟加拿大之行女兒購買了來洛磯山脈旅遊必須體驗的四種旅遊活動的大套票,每張套票是加幣194元(約美金149 元),所謂大套票就是包含Banff Gondola、Maligne Lake Cruise、Glacier Adventure和Glacier Sky Walk的四種旅遊活動;我們在山頂一共停留了1小時30分鐘才下山。


10:40 離開Banff Gondola前往隧道山(Tunnel Mountain),首先抵達驚奇角(Surprised Corner)在此遠眺Banff的高級溫泉旅館The Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel。

離開Surprised Corner後本來要開車上隧道山(Tunnel Mountain)繞一圈,但因道路封閉而直接離開Banff,前往冰原公路(Icefield Pkwy)沿途景點。

12:15 路過Lake Louise時因為大好天氣忍不住又進去了一趟Lake Louise。

12:50 離開 Lake Louise沿1號公路(Trans-Canada Hwy/AB-1 W)西北行駛約2公里後在Alberta 93出口下交流道,朝Jasper西北行。
