We have 9 full days (not counting 2 days of traveling) to spend in Banff/Jasper, there seem to be a lot of things to do in both places, also neighboring national parks such as yoho and kooteney; appreciate your help in planning our itinerary.
My husband and I love to hike but this time around we want to avoid strenuous hikes and keep to easy/moderate ones only.
1. Should we spend more time in Jasper or Banff?
2. Lake Louise and Jasper townsite seem like the right places to stay for each parks but Lake Louise is very expensive so we're considering staying in Banff. Any other options/suggestions?
Appreciate any itinerary suggestions and recommendations of places to see.
