Gettinng around Jasper

Jump to last reply

We're doing a bucket list trip, taking the train from Toronto to Vancouver, and making a 5-night stop to explore the Canadian Rockies.

We plan to get off the train in Jasper, stay 2 nights, then drive our rental car to Banff for 2 nights, then back Jasper to get back on the train. The devil is always in the details...

1. We get to Jasper Sunday afternoon (if the train is on time) and plan to get a taxi to the Best Western for 2 nights. We will probably pick up a rental car on Monday, drive to Banff on Tuesday. I have no sense of how big Jasper is. Does this seem like a plan? how far from train to hotel, and then to car rental office? (probably Budget).

2. We head back to Jasper on Thursday, drop off the car and get back on the train Friday afternoon.
(Hotels already booked in Jasper and Banff)

Thanks for any insights you might have!
