Banff, Jasper, Lake Louise, Glacier July 17-28

Jump to last reply

We are hoping to take this long delayed trip finally! I have read a number of posts here and now have a question or two.

We are a total of 4 people and we will be driving from Southern Oregon to Canada. I think the most direct route for us would be to go to Portland, then Spokane, cut across the top of Idaho and into Alberta.

1. Should we aim for Jasper first then work our way down? Is one night in Jasper enough since we have limited days? If so, where to stay that is budget friendly? (under $200) Would love it if there were breakfast included, just need decent clean, no frills place to stay.

2. Noticed many said to stay in Lake Louise area instead of Banff for the other nights. I am thinking 2 nights or 3? Is Golden too far or what about Canmore?

So far, main things we want to do, look at scenery, take many pictures, hike to Lake Agnes teahouse. Is tram in Jasper worthwhile? I noticed you can go in the evening in summer. Other suggestions? Look at Banff hotel and Fairmount too. We are in our early 50's and very active. Have a 19 and an 11 year old girl in tow.

Then we want to go through Waterton and down through Glacier. (probably just driving through for the day and head toward Yellowstone on the way back to Oregon. Have done Yellowstone and Tetons before. Probably just a quick jaunt.
