Canadian Rockies for Two Weeks?

Jump to last reply

Beginning planning for a possible two week trip next summer -- probably the first two weeks of September. I've been to the Canadian Rockies numerous times and spend a lot of time staying in various places, but my partner -- who has never been -- only has two weeks. The goal is a relaxing time, so we don't want to do a ton of driving, yet want to be able to experience a fair amount. He's never done rafting, so that would be fun, maybe horseback riding, mostly hiking and enjoying scenery. I LOVE Glacier National Park (US) and would like to incorporate a few days in one of the lodges there -- Jenny Lake the best choice?. Otherwise, I suspect we'll need to fly in and out of Calgary as rental cars from Canada to US or vice-versa usually don't work. Is there a logical loop rather than returning the same way?

I guess I'm looking for some idea of how to break the trip up including some nice places to stay. I'm usually not very big on those huge lodges filled with tour groups like the Banff Springs Hotel, but yet we love the big lodge feel -- perhaps mixed with a nice quiet cabin somewhere beautiful. I've been sitting looking and reviewing various places for hours and can't seem to get a handle on how to organize this one. Any great suggestions? Looking at flying out there on Saturday and returning two weeks later on a Sunday.
