Edmonton - Rockies - Vancouver

Jump to last reply

I tacked this onto the end of a previous discussion, but thought it might be better here in it's own spot.

My husband and I are Australians travelling to Canada in August. Edmonton is our reason for travelling, (watching a sporting event) so for us that's a definite. We arrive in Vancouver for a couple of days, head up by train to Jasper, get across to Edmonton by some mode of transport or other then have about 5 days afterwards to head back to Vancouver. A four hour drive through farming land is nothing for us, so that might well be on the cards to get to Edmonton in the first place if we can do a one way car hire. We are up to doing public transport too in any of the areas. We're not planning on having a car in Edmonton, as our accommodation is within a 15 minute walk or commensurate bus trip of the field. We could hire a car to get back to Vancouver. We're thinking of maybe overnighting in Victoria just before we head home and Lake Louise is on my list of things I'd like to do.

The other thread has great information and I'll be taking careful note of it when we're planning. Any more ideas for us though?
