Yes. The roads here are well engineered, and most of the hills are not really steep. There is one short section on the Icefields Parkway at Tangle Ridge where there are 6% grades.
Should be great fun to drive if you have room for yourselves and your gear. The Fiat made its reputation driving the Amalfi coast - mountainous and twisty - just like home!

thank you! the roads looked very nice, so I figured we'd be ok. I don't imagine it will be any more than the 2 of us with 1-2 suitcases (small).
Just curious, who did you rent the Fiat from?...
Avis was advertising their availability. I think that they were in the $50/day range (for my dates/BC location) which was about double the compact car price.
Is that who you rented from?
Saw one the other day. Trunk is small! Neat little car though.Edited: 17 June 2011, 04:39
yes, avis thru calgary airport
Being a former rental car company owner, I would be skeptical at renting a Fiat. If you have a service issue while on holidays, who would service it???

It's no big deal Dean, you simply pull into any Chrysler dealership. (I assume you didn't know that Fiat is now the putative owner of Chrysler.)
I just called the largest Chrysler dealer in Alberta and they DO NOT stock any parts for Fiat at all. I sure wouldn't want to have a problem as their service department don't know anything about repairs.
Again, I would think twice about renting a Fiat.
