So planning on July/August 2019 as have to travel in school holidays. We’re a family of 5, daughters will be 10,12 & 14 but good hikers (have done 16 mike day hikes with school), so not worrried about them getting around. Originally planned to travel from Vancouver to the Rockies but after reading posts on the forums rethought our trip. Primarily we want to spend it in the Rockies and travelling across makes it all a bit rushed. So now we’ll have a full 3 weeks in the Rockies and plan to fly in and out of Calgary from the UK. Trying to work out the optimum times to spend in the different areas. Am thinking of possibly Canmore over Banff as it’s cheaper and mainly looking for self catering. Was thinking of Golden over Lake Louise but have been put off after reading peoples comments and sounds a bit of a trek into the park each day. My husband and I travelled through about 20 years ago so we know some areas we want to take our daughters but I’m sure there’s loads we didn’t see. I’m not sure we did much in Yoho. I’m also don’t know what to do closer around Jasper as I do Banff. Also anyone recommend any horse riding or white water rafting in the area.
