After receiving lots of advice and helpful information I have come up with a rough draft of our itinerary for a 6 week trip to West Canada & Alaska in August/September 2013.
Any comments regarding overnight stops, length of stays and route would be appreciated.
Arrive Vancouver, 2 nights
3/4 nights Banff
Icefield Parkway to Jasper, overnight on Parkway
3 nights Jasper
Return via Parkway, overnight on Parkway
Back to Vancouver (not sure best route for this, perhaps via Cranbrook, Penticton) 2 nights on route
Vancouver Island 5 nights
One way cruise to Alaska followed by land base RV touring in Alaska & Yukon for 16 days.
I plan to RV in Alaska, still undecided as to RV or Car/Hotel in Canada.
We are a family with 2 children 7 & 9. Interested in Scenic driving, wildlife viewing, easy hiking/walks, light rafting.
Thanks in advance.
