My family is arriving in Calgary at 1:30 tomorrow afternoon and spending our first 2 nights (Fri & Sat) in Banff at the Fairmont. On Sunday morning we will drive to LL hike into the backcountry to Skoki Lodge where we will stay overnight. The next 3 nights (Mon, Tues & Wed) we will stay at the Fairmont LL until we head up the Icefields Pkwy for one night in Jasper.
I need some help in filling in the itinerary for our first 2 days in Banff and then the 3 in LL. I want to make sure we hit the "must sees" while not completely exhausting my kids (ages 8-12, but hearty hikers for their ages thank goodness!) Could we feasibly fit in one of the must sees on Friday afternoon/early evening on the day of arrival? If so, which one? How should we spend our only full day in Banff on Saturday? And then finally, suggestions for the full 2 days in LL on Tues & Wed? Thanks for your help!
