We have sat down and tried to work out our itinerary for our trip, what do you think? We are not sure about the overnight destinations between Lake Louise and Vancouver that we have chosen. We tried to split up the journey so that we don’t end up constantly driving-but if you think a slightly longer journey would take us to a nicer place, please let me know. We have been recommended a vineyard in Osoyoos, so that is our only must. Once I have sorted out the destinations, I can do further research and book hotels etc. Do you think we should stay all 3 night in Banff or lake Louise, or split as we have done?
