Last week of August in Banff / Jasper / Lake Louise?

Jump to last reply

My husband, 11-year-old son, and I just found ourselves with a week free at the end of the month. We've started reading up, and everything we've read about this area sounds appealing, but I'd be grateful for real suggestions and opinions from people who've been.

We all like to hike, but can't do anything much more demanding than a few scrambles, due to some recurring knee problems. Will we find lots of appealing, easy to moderate hikes? Where would be the best place to base ourselves for those? Would we do better to stay half the week in one area and half in another?

We'd like a very nice hotel (or hotels, if we end up wanting to stay in two different areas). Luxurious without being stuffy, and without being too huge or anonymous. It's a little hard to tell from guidebooks what places are beloved because people have always loved them, and which would seem just as wonderful to a family with no historical attachment to the area.

Really we'd be grateful for any suggestions!

Thanks.
