Me and my wife are planning on a road trip in Alberta this August. I've prepared an itinerary but there are good chances that it is pretty ambitious at the moment.
Just to give you a background, we are just the 2 of us travelling in a compact. We are not travelling with camping gear and intend to stay in B&Bs over the marked places. We are okay with short hikes but not into something very strenuous.
So here's the plan -
1. Base at Calgary: Leave early morning at around 6am for the Dinosaur Provincial Park. At 9:30am do the guided badlands hike; Leave from the park at about 3 pm and drive through the Dinosaur trail from Drumheller (North & South approx. 70Km), covering the horsethief canyon and orkney hills; Reach Calgary by 8pm
2. Leave Calgary by about 8:30am for Canmore - check-in at Canmore; Cover Tunnel Mountain Road, Sulphur Mountain and Cave & Basin site; Spend evening in Banff; Drive back to Canmore in the night
3. Leave Canmore at about 8:30am - Cover Lake Minnewanka, Johnston Canyon, Moraine Lake and Lake Louise; Check-in to Jasper by evening
4. From Jasper - cover Maligne Lake, Medicine Lake, Mount Edith Cavell and Miette Hot Springs; Return to Jasper by evening
5. Leave Jasper - Drive to Athabasca Glacier and do the Snocoach ride; Drive through Icefields Parkway to Bow Lake & Falls; Reach Calgary by evening
What I want to know is of this plan is too strenuous and if I should include a day more into this. If yes - where?
Please feel free to give any other opinions also if you feel there are some possible flaws above.
