Help planning 3 Weeks Seattle, Vancouver Isl, Vancouver to Banff

Jump to last reply

I need your help please in planning a 28 day July-August vacation starting with 4 nights in San Francisco (Hilton Union Square) and ending with 4 nights at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. We plan to spend time in Seattle and Vancouver and probably Victoria. We are flying into Seattle and will use ferries and car rental for travel from there, flying home from Calgary.
My friend and I are active well-traveled women. Our city interests include restaurants, local attractions, shopping, and night life. In addition, this trip is to explore the beauty of Canada by car and stop in small towns proximate to scenic attractions. We aren't "athletes" but enjoy biking, kayak/canoe, sailing, horseback riding, hiking, city and beach walks, zip lining. We want to explore wineries, poke around small towns and relax at long lunches. At this point, I'm including Pacific Rim National Park, Jasper, the Iceland Parkway, and Lake Louise. Should I spend time in the San Juan Islands as well as Vancouver Island? Where in Canada (or Seattle area) should we go to explore wineries? Best locations for kayaking, horseback riding, etc. I'd like to minimize the number of one night stop-overs, if possible and spend at least 4 nights in Vancouver and 3-4 in Seattle, 2 in Victoria? I've read that I shouldn't go to Whistler if I am going on to Banff. This is the type of input that I need at this point so that we have variety in our experiences. Thank you all for your interest.
