HELP!! suggestions please for drive from Calgary-Kimberley

Hi we have booked 2 nights in Kimberley in July (4-6). I grew up near Calgary but now live in Australia.

We have stayed at Banff (several times) and stayed at Waterton the last time so don't want to stay there again. We are travelling with my 10 yr old son. I am looking for any suggestions for a route between Calgary & Kimberley--Revelstoke? Panorma? would like something affordable with lots of scenary/nice/mountain filled drive. We won't be hiking or doing any rafting etc. Just want a nice pretty drive.

Any feedback/suggestions is very appreciated. Thank you!

Hello lisakellycdn

Would be best to repost your query directly to the Alberta or perhaps wider Canada forum so the local experts can find and respond to your question. Here is the link if helpful.


Good luck with your research and hope you enjoy your holiday.

Hi lisakellycdn;

This forum, the “TripAdvisor Support” forum, is for general questions and assistance using the TripAdvisor site itself.

For questions about travelling to specific destinations, you can use the destination forums. The Canadian Rockies forum is here on TA;


I would suggest posting your query on that forum.

Best Regards

you could take 93 at the Castle Mountain turn off which will get you travelling in the Kootenay National Park. you could stay in Radium or Invermere if you do not want to make the trip to Kimberley in one day, which is easily done. https://goo.gl/maps/IxMPK

if you take this route make sure to stop shortly at a viewpoint after you make the turn off onto 93 to have a look at Castle Mountain ( on a clear day). you will need a park pass if you stop between Banff and Radium - not required if you drive through.
