East coast and west coast- best way to travel?

Jump to last reply

We are planning 3 weeks in Canada in June/July next year (from Australia). I know how huge Canada is and would like to concentrate on flying into Vancouver, exploring there and Vancouver Island, then travelling to Jasper, Banff, Lake Louise -either by train or car. Then I would like to fly to the east coast and visit Nova Scotia and particularly Prince Edward Island. If we took the train into the Rockies, can you break your journey ie. stay 2 nights at Jasper, then resume? Do we need to backtrack to Vancouver to fly to Halifax? I know there's a lot I'm missing in the middle, but 3 weeks is not long. Last question - am I being too ambitious trying to do both the east and west coasts? Should I choose one and hope we can come again?

Many thanks for your advice
