Hello, we are thinking about travelling to vancouver and visiting the west canadian national parks ...hovewer we are not sure what period is the most appropriate to do it - what about from half september to half october, isnt it too late (not to be too cold etc..on the other hand we wouldnt neither like to spend there the hot summer...) Thanks for any piece of idea! BR

Hi Dzejn,

From our experience last year in August, western Canada does not have hot summers. They also tend to have short summers. It was hot (about 30 degrees celsius) when we arrived in Vancouver but the temperature never got higher than 22 degrees celsius for the next 3 weeks. In fact, travelling through Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper was cold - we always had long pants and warm jackets on. I would suggest that mid-August to mid-September would be fine but starting to get too cold in October.

Welcome to Canada. Mid-June to mid-July are good times, although in Calgary it can be rainy in June. The suggestion above of mid-August to mid-September is an excellent one.
