I know that there has been an earlier post on this topic, however the one I saw was 5 years old, so I thought I would put it out there again....
We will be in Banff for about a week in late Feb and plan to take the "Canadian" train from Jasper to Vancouver. Can anyone recommend a nice place to stay for 1 night in Jasper? I would prefer to be near the train station (but not necessarily right on top of it). Also, we are travelling with 2 small children, so somewhere where they can get a good nights sleep would also be good (read: not above loud bars etc...)
Also, I have heard that there are some wonderful dog sled tours that you can take - can anyone recommend the people to go with for this?
Lastly (I promise) I am a bit confused about the whole park fee thing... I get (and support) that the fee is paid to the national parks for maintance and upkeep, however, I am not sure how it is all supposed to work - the transfer company we are thinking of using, (Sundog tours?.) said that this fee was included in their fee, but I have also read that it is only the entry fee, and that if we are planning to stay (obviously) we have to get another pass on top of this. Does this park fee for Banff also cover Jasper? Help!!!!
(Actually any ideas about tras from Calgary - Banff - Jasper would also be appreciated...)
Thanks in advance!
