Forming itinerary--Moraine Lake to Jasper to Banff Springs this Sept.

Jump to last reply

We land in Calgary in early September and stay for 10 days. We will start at Moraine Lake Lodge (3 nights), Jasper (4 nights), and finish at Banff Springs (3 nights). I'm hoping you kind folks can help me organize our trip logically, i.e. in what order should we see things from point A to point B to point C. Here are my questions:
1. Is Johnston Canyon north or south of Lake Louise?
2. We will take all day on 9/6 to get from Moraine Lake to Jasper. What stops should we make going north from Moraine Lake to Jasper and how much time should we reasonably allow at each stop? One thing we will skip is the glacier bus tour.
3. What to see going south from Jasper to Banff Springs, again taking the better part of a day?
4. Would it be best to take a packed lunch on the Icefields Pkwy between Lake Louise and Jasper?
5. How difficult is the Plain of Six Glaciers hike?
6. Is Athabasca Glacier closer to Jasper or Lake Louise?
7. Has anyone gone horseback riding in Maligne Canyon (I think we could stand about 2 +/- hours).
8. Where is Beauty Creek in Jasper? Would you recommend it as a stop?

Thanks so much.
Kate
