Recommendations for 7-day trip to Canadian Rockies

Jump to last reply

We live in NJ, are planning to make a trip to Banff/Jasper area during the 2nd week of July, from 7/7/12 to 7/14/12. Our tentative itinerary is:

1. NJ (Newark) to Calgary
2. Drive up to Jasper
3. Stay in Jasper for 2-3 days, do various sight-seeing, including Columbia Icefields.
4. Head on down to Lake Louise/Banff, stay there for 2-3 days.
5. Calgary back to NJ

What would be the best places to see at each of these areas? Also, the # days spent in each park is flexible; we can spend more days in Jasper, fewer days in Banff, as per recommendations.

Also looking for suggestions for good lodging, but reasonable prices.
Thanks.
