We are staying in Fairmont from 15th to 22nd September. We are driving from Portland area to Fairmont Hotsprings. I am wondering doing the Icefields Parkway drive to Jasper and spend a night over there and return next day. If it is same day return trip may be too much and too rushed? I have not booked a place in Jasper yet. Rest of the days planning to spend time around Banff area. We are first time visiting Canadian rockies.
Please any ideas and suggestions requested.
