Day 3 - Lake Louise

Today we'll call at beautiful Lake Louise, where turquoise waters - frozen for much of the year - are set against the awesome backdrop of the Victoria Glacier. We'll then travel the renowned Icefields Parkway - a spectacular journey through the heart of the Rockies - before continuing to Jasper, in scenic Jasper National Park.
