Plotting out a new circle route .. Spokane - Jasper - Banff

Jump to last reply

We have really enjoyed several vacations where we drove a leisurely circle route to Banff that includes the Okanagan, Nelson and the inland ferry route across Galena Bay (road to Revelstoke). I'd like find a different route for an inland ferry this fall (maybe Kootenay Lake?) - any ideas?

Note: this is a mid-September trip of just over 2 weeks duration, taking an aunt & uncle (or aunt and a niece) with us. We'll fly into Spokane, arriving afternoon/evening, and need a night's rest.

Roughly, the trip would look like this:

- Fly into Spokane; 1 night at airport hotel for early morning departure
- Into Okanagan wine area through Osoyoos, 1-2 nights at favorite spots
- To Wells Gray Provincial Park; 1-2 nights in Clearwater area
- To Jasper; 2 nights
- To Canmore; 7 nights at timeshare (enjoying Banff area)
- Longish day's drive to Nelson ; 1 night at Hume -- INLAND FERRY??
- Return to Spokane (no rush); 1 night at airport hotel for morning flight

My original plan took the opposite direction, but that would put us in Jasper and Wells Gray in early October - later than I want (already have the week in Canmore).

I suppose I could break the drive up between Canmore and Nelson if I have to, cutting a day out somewhere else. But the Nelson stop is a "tradition," so have to fit it in.

Suggestions?
