Calgary to Vancouver Via Jasper

We are close to booking a holiday involving a route from Calgary to Vancouver taking in Banff, Jasper & Sun Peaks on the way. It looks amazing and we will be driving the entire route stopping on the way to stay some nights in various hotels/lodges.

Has anyone done a similar route? Also we will have our 2 year old daughter with us, I just want to make sure it won't be too much travelling for her, we are spreading it over 2 weeks with regular stops so hopefully it should be ok.

Any thoughts are appreciated.

Could you please let us know what time of year you are thinking of travelling? This trip is one thing in the summer, a whole different thing in the winter.

This is a very popular itinerary. You will find the information I posted just a few minutes ago in this thread useful, I think: tripadvisor.ca/ShowTopic-g154943-i81-k424553…

Have a browse through past posts on the various forums, and the other resources here on TripAdvisor, and you will find that most of your questions will be answered.

Something I can suggest to you since your driving yourself is to look at an itinerary from tour companies that do the same route. That way you see what they stop at and you can use it as a rough guide for your sightseeing.

look at



(resorts of the Rockies)

it will get you started. I did this tour last summer and found the scenery quite nice driving vs the train. Sunpeaks has nicer hotels than Kamloops and you'd be close to Penticton and the Okanagon which is a nice contrast from the Rockies.
