Family of 4 (youngest 14 yrs) planning to go to the Rockies starting in Calgary an ending up in Vancouver in early July 2014. I have had some quotes for going via the Rocky Mountaineer tour for the 5 days, but costs are expensive. Over $2,500 to $3,300 each person.
Can i self drive the whole journey and is there a lot we would be missing out on, by not going by train?
I imagine that the driving would be significantly cheaper!!
Can anyone provide advice here?
