Grab a blanket, some snacks, and a tub of sunscreen (we’re guessing isolation has made this your palest spring yet) because we’re fast approaching picnic season in the mountains.
Whether you pack your own snacks, order your regular dish to-go or take advantage of the perfect-for-picnic options at a few local eateries, a meal al fresco is a great way to enjoy great food while social distancing. Don’t know about you, but we’re about ready to take a break from our own cooking.
12 Columbia Icefields Centre
Distance from town: 103 kilometres
It might be wise to bring a sweater or jacket for your picnic at this location. Although it’s super scenic, the Centre is located at a higher elevation than the town of Jasper and is thus often a few degrees chillier. But the jaw-dropping views of the Athabasca Glacier are worth it.
