Driving the Rockies

Jump to last reply

We are planning to hire a car in Vancouver and drive the Rockies for 10.5 days at the second half of September this year. Our first stop will be Whistler, from there the planned itinerary is Kamloops, Jasper, down to Banff and then across to Kelowna and back to Vancouver. Are we giving ourselves enough time? Any suggestions on how much time to allow in places and also time to do any extra tours, for eg Alabaster glacier would be greatly appreciated. Also are we following the best route to see the most. We will have 2 nights in Banff but not sure where else to have an extra night. Thanks
