We haven't yet done that much research into the Canada part of the trip. We are planning on camping. Does anyone have any sites they recommend?

We'd like to do some canoeing, rafting, canyoning, biking, hiking, climbing, sky diving and anything else outdoorsy. All areas in Canada seem to offer most of these but we can't decide where to do what. Is there a preferred place for each? We would also like to do overnight raft or canoe trips if they are not too expensive.

We're looking to the Athabasca glacier tour. Is this worth doing if we are cruising to alaska?

Is there a preference over the gondolas / skytrams in jasper or whistler or are they both worth doing?

People have suggested spending less time in Jackson / Whistler and more in Lake Louise / Banff. Any advice is appreciated.

Many thanks

J
