I am trying to put together a trip for my in-laws. Here is what I have so far.
July 1 - Canada Day in Banff - gondola, parade, boat cruise?
July 2 - Lake Louise and area
July 3 - Johnson Canyon
July 4 - Drive to Jasper - stopping along way to see fallls, lookouts etc
July 5 - Maligne Lake
July 6 - Gondola ride, sights in area
July 7 - Head back to Calgary stopping at Ice Fields, staying a night in area Baker Creek perhaps
July 8 - Drive to Calgary and drop off car in downtown Calgary (won't need a car and why pay for the rental and the parking...no drop off fee if left downtown)
July 9 - Stampede parade
July 10 - Stampede Rodeo, Chuckwagon races etc
July 11 - take cab to airport and head home to Ontario
Just a note...my in-laws are in their 70's . Any suggestions....thinking it might be too long...not sure what to take out. I have talked them into the Stampede which I think every red blooded Canadian should see.
