Banff, Lake Louise, and Jasper

Jump to last reply

Considering a trip to this area for 2015. Could go anytime in June or July. I have read that June is often very rainy. Would probably be a long weekend trip. Would spend 4 full days in that area. Would fly into Calgary on a Thursday and Depart Calgary on a Tuesday.

Are my options for lodging just on each end of the parks(Lake Louise/Banff and Jasper) or are there other options in between the two. I'm not totally opposed to renting RV and camping.

We like to hike. Are there "best" hikes to consider.

I'm just at the beginning stage of planning and not sure exactly what we want to do. We would probably do a bus to one of the glaciers. Possibly might do a Gondala ride. I don't have a guidebook yet, but will buy one soon.

Thanks for any suggestions.
