Honeymoon Dilemma: Banff or Jasper?


We're spending two weeks in Canada next year and will be getting married while there. We're staying in Banff for at least the first week and have our wedding booked there - the dilemma is, do we stay in Banff for the full two weeks and chill out a bit, or do we have one week in Banff and the second in Jasper? Does Jasper have anything that Banff doesn't? Is it as beautiful/ the scenery as dramatic? Or are we better keeping to Banff and really exploring it? We won't be driving, by the way, if that makes a difference to replies. Any advice will be much appreciated - as it's a honeymoon we really want to get it right!

Thanks :-)

I have only ever been to Banff in April but have to say you must not miss the drive on the Icefields Parkway up to Jasper. When we were there it was snowing and a couple of times the road was closed but we did manage it eventually and it is the most amazing drive and should not be missed. You must go in your own car so you can take it at your own pace - the scenery is breathtaking - you have chosen well for your honeymoon, have a great time.
