Jasper and Banff and Glacier

Jump to last reply

I am sure these topic has been completely discussed, and I have looked at some of the discussions. We have a second home on the Olympic Peninsula but want to stretch our legs and eyes and see more of the beautiful BC and US scenery. Hiking and photography are uppermost on our to do lists. Our primary home is in Oklahoma so being able to tour this amazing country in the Northwest is such a treat for us. Are the following travel plans too ambitious to fully appreciate the areas we are touring?
1. Leave Port Townsend, Wa and drive to Kamloops, BC via the Frazier River canyon
2. Kamloops to Banff staying at the High Country Inn
3. Banff High Country Inn
4. drive the Icefields Parkway to Jasper- tent camp in oTenttik in a campground
5. drive back on the Icefields and splurge at the Post Spa
6. drive to Glacier (US) and spend the next three nights at Apgar Village beside Lake McDonald
return to Port Townsend

We definitely want to hike as much as possible. Or much as possible with a husband who also wants to take photographs.

One big question is whether or not we should spend the night in Jasper. Is it worth it to drive the entire Icefields Parkway? We definitely want to stop and hike along the way. Thank you for any guidance!
