Hi Tracey

I have lived in both cities and used to make the drive often. I currently live in Edmonton and know that if you are coming to visit my fine city, you are in for a treat!

The BEST way....do you mean fastest? Or most scenic?

I usually take the Coquihalla Highway (so fast!) and it takes about 12 hours.

A really nice stop (altho a little more than halfway) is Jasper. Highly recommended.

Map and Directions

Welcome!

Are you coming to see family or just for a weekend getaway?
