14 day trip advice Spokane Wa to Glacier,Banff, Jasper, Lake Louise

Jump to last reply

I am flying in to Spokane Washington, renting a car and am planning to visit Glacier Park, Calgary, Banff, Jasper, Lake Louise, Yoho and maybe Kootenay and Canmore. I have 14 days. Are my expectations too high? I love to hike and hope to book a night at the Abbott Pass hut in Yoho. I am also trying to get a night at the Granite Park Chalet in Glacier but have had no luck so far. Any suggestions on places to stay or hikes to do would be appreciated. Any suggestions on routing this trip would also be appreciated.
I land in Spokane at 11 pm.Where should I spend the first night? I was thinking of Coeur D'Alene.
What route should I take to Glacier? Is stopping at Missoula Montana out of the way and not worth it?
I would like to see Calgary, too. Would it be sensible to drive through Calgary and spend a night on the way to Banff?
Is Canmore worth a detour?
What suggestions do you have for the return trip? I don't want to spend a whole day driving back to Spokane.
Thanks so much!
