Jump to last reply

We (couple with kids 13, 10, 6-y living in Portland, OR) are planning a 10-day trip to Banff from June 24 to July 4th. We have already booked most of the hotels. Here are our schedule:

Day 1: Depart around 2 p.m., drive (6-h) to Coeur d'Alene, stay overnight.
Day 2: drive (4.5-h) to Glacier National Park, stay in the park Lake McDonald Lodge for 1 night.
Day 3: drive (2-h) to Waterton National Park in Canada, short tour & rest, then drive (4.5-h) to Banff. Stay in Canmore for 2 nights.
Day 4: tour Banff area
Day 5: drive (1-h) to Lake Louise, stay in Lake Louise for 2 nights.
Day 6: tour Lake Louise area
Day 7: drive (4-h) to Jasper, stay in Jasper for 2 nights.
Day 8: tour Jasper area
Day 9: tour west Jasper, then drive (3-h) to Blue River, stay for 1 night.
Day 10: drive (5-h) to Abbotsford, BC stay for 1 night. Drive 1-h to Vancouver in the evening and have dinner there (may tour the suspension bridge in Vancouver if we have time & energy in the afternoon)
Day 11: drive (5-h) back home. Tour Flight Museum in Seattle area on the way home.

Welcome advise re what to do in each location. Our goal is to have a relaxed vacation (not too rushed to go different places), although the long drive may seem it's hard to relax :)
