Seeing the best of BC - starting in Vancouver

Jump to last reply

HI,

My partner and I are travelling to Canada in a few weeks from Sydney Australia.
We basically have 3 weeks to travel from Vancouver and see the sights. (We're spending a week in Vancouver with friends).

We're interested in seeing some beautiful scenery and doing some hiking (day hikes 5 - 10kms ish) as we go along.

We're planning on staying in B&Bs along the way and maybe a couple of more upmarket places in Banff/Lake Louise.

The rough plan so far is to drive:
Vancouver
Hope (1 night) 5th August
Oliver (1 or 2 nights)
Kelowna (1 or 2 nights)
Crazy Creek Resort between Sicamous and Revelstoke (2 nights)
Golden/Yoho (2 nights)
Lake Louise (1 night)
Banff (2 nights)
Jasper (2 nights) 17th and 18th August

From here I'm unsure of the best way to get back to Vancouver - this plan would leave us with 2 nights before arriving back in Vancouver no later than the 21st August.

Any suggestions would be greatly welcomed - we're hoping for a relaxed trip with lots of nature. Is this too much of a "whirlwind" itinerary?
