June trip to: Banff/Lake Louise/Jasper/Via Rail to Vancouver

Jump to last reply

Hello Fodorites. I need help in planning a trip for 2 couples (age 60) on June 15th to Banff, Lake Louise, Jasper and Vancouver and perhaps Whistler areas.

We will be flying into Calgary and heading straight to Banff area. Our preliminary planning includes: 2 nights in Banff, 3 nights in Lake Louise, and 1 night in Jasper at which time we will take the Via Rail train to Vancouver.

My questions are:
1. Is 1 night in Jasper enough? We would like to see Maligne Lake and Mount Edith Cavell as well as Athabasca Falls. The train from Jasper leaves on June 23rd

2. Should we stay in one centrally located place in the Banff/Lake Louise area rather than breaking it up between the two? Are there any centrally located 2 bedroom condos that we could stay in?

3. Any recommendations for car rental from Calgary leaving the car in Jasper?

4. Weather in mid June...how should we plan for dressing/packing?

5. If we wanted to go to Glacier National Park, Montana how many more days do we need?

I appreciate any help and recommendations you might be able to give us.
