Q: How do I get in touch with a company that offers tours of the Icefields Parkway in Western Canada?

A: For icefield gazing, you’ll want to touch base with the folks at Banff Lake Louise Tourism. The scenic parkway is situated in Canada’s premier national park, Banff Lake Louise. Here you’ll get a close up view of the astonishing rich history of the Canadian Rockies. For more details phone 1-403-8421 or visit
