Banff and Jasper National Parks

Jump to last reply

Hi. I had originally thought of visiting Glacier and Banff so I had posted a question in the Montana forum. After some great input and more research, I am leaning on a 7 night visit to just Banff and Jasper this trip and visit GNP on the next one. I would appreciate your opinion and comments on our following itinerary in case I should make some adjustments. The flights are not booked yet and I am able to cancel any of the hotel reservations I have made so far. We are in our mid to late 50's and enjoy mild hiking and beautiful scenery. We are thinking of flying in and out of Calgary. I have booked the Fairmont Chateau St. Louise in Banff NP for 3 nights and the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge for 3 nights. Although, someone had mentioned the Moraine Lake Lodge which I admit looks very nice. Any thoughts on this vs. the Chateau St. Louise? The Moraine Lodge looks more rustic which is what I like but everybody says the location of the Chateau is amazing. The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge seems overpriced but appears to be in a great location. Still working on a hotel for Calgary for the night before our early flight. The Fairmont was already sold out but that is ok because I'm thinking of something less expensive more in the general airport vicinity. We will land in Calgary late afternoon then drive to the Fairmont St. Louise. I'm told it is about a 90 min - an hour drive. On our 4th day we will take the Icefields Parkway to Jasper. I'm told to expect a good 5 hour drive. On our 7th day we will drive back on the Icefields Parkway all the way to Calgary. How does this sound? Am I better off 4 nights in Banff NP and 2 in Jasper or is 3 and 3 the way to go as mentioned above? Does driving to/from Jasper on the Icefields Parkway make sense? I was told that it was so beautiful that we should. Thanks again, W
