we are two seniors from Montreal who are heading off to Yellowknife for September 12 to 16 to see the aurora. We would also like to visit Banff, Maligne Lake, Lake Louise, The Columbia Icefields. Being seniors we would rather not spend all day driving. On the other hand, it seems that a bus tour would be done in a day or so. One possibility is to arrive in Calgary and then drive to Vancouver, but I have no idea if that is practical or easy. Or, how long it would take. We would prefer to do this before arriving in Vancouver to head for Yellowknife.
