Travelling through the Rockies...

Jump to last reply

My boyfriend and I are flying into Vancouver on 22nd August and spending 2 nights, then a further 2 nights in Whistler. We are then heading to Kelowna to visit a relative. The only other thing that we have booked is a flight out of Calgary on the 5th September.

My dilemma is that I'm not too sure how long to stay in Kelowna and how much to try and do in the Rockies. It has been suggested that we go from Kelowna straight to Banff and miss out Jasper but I am worried about missing something amazing! Wondering if anyone can offer an opinion on whether we should try and do both and roughly how long we would need to stay in each place to feel like we were able to see a fair bit and not be too rushed. Also, would we find the two parks quite different, with different activities available?

Would also love to know if anyone has an idea of the most scenic route and what we could see along the way. Any links to other sites with itineraries, drive times etc. would be appreciated as I am trying to plan everything quickly without much time and am a little overwhelmed......!

We are early 30's and have a reasonable but not unlimited budget!

Thanks so much!
