We are currently planning our 3 week trip for next summer which looks like this:
Flying into Calgary and picking up a hire car, then as follows:
Banff - Banff Ave B &B (3 nights) 28, 29,30th July
Lake Louise – Paradise Lodge (2 nights) 31st July 1st Aug
Jasper -Raven House (2 nights) ,2nd ,3rd Aug
Clearwater – Clearwater Springs Ranch (2 nights) 4th ,5th Aug
Hope – Evergreen B & B (1 night) 6th Aug
Victoria – Abbeymoore Manor B&B (1 night) 7th Aug
Tofino – Ocean Dreams B&B (4 nights) 8, 9, 10, 11 Aug
Sooke - Eagle Cove Beachfront Suite (3 nights) 12, 13, 14 Aug
Vancouver – Bee & Thistle B&B (3 nights) 15, 16, 17th Aug
I would really appreciate any thoughts on the distances involved and the time we are planning to spend at each location. We've gone with almost all B&Bs as they offer such great value.
Also, we are probably going to use Air Transat as they are considerably cheaper than the scheduled carriers - does anyone have any experience of them?
This is our first trip to Canada to it feels like a bit of a leap in the dark, and as we have pretty much decided to go the DIY route rather than use an agent I'm anxious that we don't miss any obvious pitfalls.
Thanks very much.
