Banff/Lake Louise/Jasper Itinerary Help

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone! Last year, my husband and I went on our first "adventure" vacation to Utah, which everyone here was a great help. We absolutely fell in love and now we're back for more. We're still in the initial stages of planning to visit Banff, LL, and Jasper for 8 nights/9 days from 8/27 through 9/4. We have yet to buy air tickets, so the itinerary might change, but I've noticed that hotel accommodations are going fast, so I figured I better put in a reservation now and cancel later if I need to. I haven't done enough research on which hikes we'd do, but would you guys mind to see if my itinerary makes sense? Also, any advice on where to stay would be great. We're hoping to spend around $200/night USD, but would be willing to spend up to $300/night. We're more concerned about cleanliness and convenience than we are about it being "fancy."

Sat, 8/27: Fly into Calgary arriving at 1:30pm. Drive to Banff. Overnight in Banff.
Sun: Lake Louise/Moraine Lake. Overnight in Banff.
Mon: Banff/Yoho NP. Overnight in Banff
Tues: Banff/Yoho NP. Overnight in Banff
Wed: Drive Icefields Parkway to Jasper. Overnight in Jasper
Thurs: Overnight in Jasper
Fri: Overnight in Jasper
Sat: Drive back to Calgary. Overnight in Calgary
Sun, 9/4: 7am flight

As for Banff accommodations that are still available, the Rimrock seems to be a popular choice but it might be outside of our budget unless our alternatives aren't that good. What are your thoughts of Banff Caribou Lodge or the Delta Banff Royal Canadian Lodge? (Or really any other place, but I would need to check availability.)

For Jasper, the few places that are left are the Tonquinn Inn, Best Western Jasper, Pyramid Lake Resort, and Mount Robson Inn. None seem too memorable, but again looking for cleanliness and convenience to food and hikes. Thoughts?

Thanks again!
