We will be staying in Banff the second week of July and definitely plan to do the Icefields Parkway drive as far as possible from Banff with stops along the way, but we need to return the same day.
How long would we need to allow to do the Icefields Adventure Tour? I know it will probably be very bus that time of year.
If we skip the Icefields Adventure tour, that would give us more time to drive further north on the Parkway and enjoy more different scenery along the way.
Would appreciate any opinions on the relative merits of the two options. Although most people seem to enjoy the Icefields Adventure tour, I wonder if our limited time would be better spent enjoying more places further up the parkway.
