    • Jasper Itinerary

      Jasper National Park Mar 25, 2014 at 2:01 AM

      I'm celebrating the big 60 - so I want to make this day special towards the end of June

      Planned itinerary: Hotel is in Patricia Ave Jasper

      Early trip on Parkfields Iceway - first trip out! continue to Maligine Canyon - Google puts this round trip as 56 minutes - then approx. 2 hours for Parkfields Iceway

      Then head in the opposite direction to Moose Lake, Berg Lake - OK I accept we have to come back into Jasper first as Moose Lake is in exactly the opposite direction. Google maps puts this at 54 minute drive

      We tend to leave the hotel at about 8am, arrive back by 8pm having eaten and head straight to bed - case of seeing as much as we can - we adjust itineraries on the day as some places are too far. I might be 60 but I'm super charged and have been know to wear my sons out with our previous sightseeing!!

      Evening meal: yes I want something nice but restaurant prices seem horribly expensive - could possibly take in lunch instead - thinking of Downstream Restaurant or Jasper Brewing Company - both seem to have reasonably priced food with a fairly decent selection. We can't afford to go too much upmarket as we're on a budget.

      Plan to do Lake Louise Lake Bow and others from Canmore

      Hoping someone can make my big 60 special! Thanks

    • Best time for wildflowers

      Banff National Park Apr 9, 2014 at 5:49 AM

      Our summer/fall is open. What's the best time for wildflowers in Canadian Rockies and best time for clear skies? I realize the latter is very unpredictable!

    • Hot Springs

      Jasper National Park Apr 4, 2014 at 2:03 AM

      Given that there are 3 hot springs within the par - Banff Hot springs, Radium & Miette which is the best - we could do either of them - more interested in the scenic views. We will be there 22 June until 1st July - will it be warm enough outside in a swimsuit?

      Any other addition advice for a newbie visiting Canada for the first time much appreciated. Driving from Canmore through to Jasper on the Canadian Trans high way and looking forward to it. Trying to sort out fuel stations en route - any recommendations please?

      Many thanks

    • Fuel stops/Rest Stations

      Jasper National Park Apr 7, 2014 at 1:29 AM

      We are driving the Trans Canadian Highway from Canmore to Jasper in the middle of June. I have been trying to find out rest stations/fuel stations enroute. The only ones I can see are: Hardisty & Deadmans Flat. Someone has mentioned that there is one at Skatchewan Crossing and that it is expensive. Whilst we will start with a full tank of fuel it would be nice to know in advance where the next fuel station is in case we hit traffic. We intend taking a picnic with us but need comfort stops - which are the best stations and the ones to avoid

      Many thanks

    • Lake for novice canoeing

      by justinleisle Online Now May 12, 2009 at 8:39 AM

      I'm taking my mom kayaking/canoeing for the long weekend around Calgary, she is novice so I want to do a nice lake which won't be too crowded and maybe a small river run. Any suggestions?

    • Kananaskis or Jasper with kids - which one and what to do?

      by AnnekeGlen Online Now Jun 11, 2008 at 11:28 AM

      Hi,
      I will beflying in from Toronto to spend about 5 days with our young family - 2 kids aged 4 and 5 -- road trip between Calgary and Edmonton. We want a meaningful trip, not super rushed, family friendly but also since we might not be back in the area for a while, hit as many 'breathtaking' must-see spots as we can..also would be fun to 'do' some fun things with the kids and nature

      Our tentative itinerary

      Day 1 Calgary - stay w friends in Calgary
      Day 2 Drumheller - drive back to Calgary
      Day 3 Kananaskis - canoe with kids or rent raft? stay in Banff for the night
      Day 4 Early morning Peyto Lake, Gondola ride, Lake Louise, Moraine Lake - Banff for the night
      Day 5 Icefields Parkway - stop at Snocoach Athabaska glacier - Jasper for the night
      Day 6 Drive to Edmonton - stay w friends
      Day 7 Flight out of Edmonton in the early afternoon

      Is this too rushed? Are we missing the big things, and focussing on others too much? What are the must sees in any of the spots we are planning to visit? I planned it this way so that we would spend time w friends unwinding at the start and end of the trip. However, now I'm wondering if I need more time in Kananaskis, Banff and Jasper and should cut out Drumheller?

      Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
