National Geographic rates the Icefield Parkway as one of the "10 Greatest Drives in the World". Mile Zero starts here at the famous Highway 93 – and there's no better way to experience it but on a motorbike, with an unobstructed view of the scenery that surround you – the wildlife, majestic mountains, icefields and glaciers (and yes, there are about 100 glaciers here!), lakes, canyons, hot springs, waterfalls...
Three words: Unspoiled. Majestic. Breathtaking.
Daytime forecast was calling for a high of 17C but as soon as we hit the icefields area, temperatures started dipping down to 8C. Now that is very cold when you're riding a bike -- even with our already 3 layers of thermal underlayers! Note to ourselves: we will definitely invest on heated underlayer jackets!
