Banff to Vancouver and What it Means to be a Canadian

Jump to last reply

Over the years I have seen dozens and dozens of posts on this board asking advice on how to drive between Banff and Vancouver--how long? what's the best route? do it in one day? etc. etc. I'm very familiar with the Trans Canada route, at least between Banff and Kamloops, having driven the Fraser Canyon only a few times since the Coquihalla was opened. It's a breathtaking drive, sometimes in more ways than one, such as when heading down the Kicking Horse canyon in mid-winter.

In this weekend's Globe Ian Brown has put a whole new perspective on the drive with his tribute, "Driving Home". Whether you have travelled the route many times or have yet to experience this magnificent drive I think you will enjoy the article.
