First visit to Canadian Rockies

Jump to last reply

We're checking off an item on DH's bucket list this year, and taking the train across Canada, Toronto to Vancouver with a few days in the Canadian Rockies.

Train arrives - if on time - at Jasper on Sunday afternoon, and we're back on the train heading to Vancouver on Friday afternoon. Limited time, but enough for a short exploration. We'll rent a car in Jasper, but have no idea how to allocate our time. We'll drive from Jasper to Banff with a stop at Lake Louise, and back to Jasper to get back on the train. There won't be hiking - knees too dodgy for that. ;-)

We're two seniors, experienced travelers - we've "trained" around the US on Amtrak, and across Australia on the Indian Pacific, among other memorable explorations.

All suggestions/itineraries/places to stay are welcome!
