Canadian Rockies Itinerary input?

Jump to last reply

Folks,

Two youngish senior couples (non-hikers) driving the Rockies in mid Sept (9-17). After driving to Salmon Arm from Vancouver, based on some online input several months ago, we head to Lake Louise, go to Jasper and then double back to Banff (Canmore) and fly home from Calgary. Itinerary and places for us to stop is as follows:
Lake Louise (2 nights)
Trails around Lake
Chateau Lake Louise Hotel
Lake Louise Gondola
Moraine Lake
Emerald Lake and Takkakaw Falls

Icefields Parkway to Jasper
Peyto Lake
Bow Lake
Mistaya Canyon
Wilcox Pass Hike-
Athabasca Falls
Snowcoach to Glacier –
Sunwapta Falls

Jasper (3nights)
Tramway
Malign Lake
Malign Canyon
Medicine Lake
Bow Valley (Highway 1A to Banff)
Johnson Canyon
Castle Mtn.

Banff
Banff Gondola
Bow Falls
Tunnel Mtn.
Minnewanka boat tour

Canmore for lodging (2 nights)

Comments on itinerary appreciated, but specific question about the drive from Lake Louise to Jasper and back. Must we (and should we) take the Icefields to and from Jasper? Anything missing?
Thanks!!
