Lake Louise & Icefields Parkway

Red Chairs

Hunt for the Red Chairs

It's the 75th Anniversary of the Icefields Parkway so why not take a leisurely drive from Lake Louise up the roadway that has earned itself the title "one of the most scenic highways in the world".  Stop at Bow Lake or Peyto Lake and take in the views.  Approximately 51 km north of Lake Louise you'll reach the Silverhorn Creek Campground where you've earned a peaceful rest in one of Parks Canada's iconic Red Chairs to take it all in.  Get there early September before the campground closes for the season! 

Continue north another 25km on the Icefields Parkway towards Glacier Lake Trailhead parking lot.  From there, cross a foot bridge over the North Saskatchewan River, and follow the trail 2.2km until you reach the Howse River Viewpoint Red Chairs.

Pick up your Icefields Parkway Xplorers booklet from the Lake Louise Visitor Information Centre before your departure. And once you've reached either destination, don't forget to share your moment with #ShareTheChair
