Scenic drive from Vancouver -Whisler - Jasper - Banff - Vancouver

Jump to last reply

I know many travelers take a route to drive from Vancouver to Banff and Jasper and come back to Vancouver. I am considering to add trip to Whisler in this road trip and wonder if this route makes sense.

I just don't want to travel on the same route twice if not necessary.
I have 6 to 7 days (have not booked any rooms yet) to explore Canada Rocky starting May 20 and wonder if you can make some suggestions of better/alternative/ or more scenic route, and where to stop for overnight stay. I am traveling with my son (20 month old) and another childlike husband who both love nature.

We like to make many stops and will drive slow to enjoy mother nature.

Should I prepare winter jacket for my son as well?
