Whistler to Salmon Arm to Lake Louise

Hello,

Can anyone recommend stops between Whistler, Salmon Arm and Lake Louise to break up the driving distance and spend two nights?

Thanks!

Sorry but not clear what you're asking. Do you want stops between Whistler and Salmon Arm and then between Salmon Arm and Lake Louise?

If so then look at Logan lake area for the first and Revelstoke for the second...another road trip option would be Whistler to Vernon then Vernon to Nakusp then up Arrow Lakes to Revelstoke.

Hwy 6 from Vernon to Nakusp is really scenic..narrow, twisty, not too many tourists..then ferry ( free) across lake then drive up to Nakusp.

Sorry...clarification...we are considering breaking up long days of driving by looking to stay in-between Whistler and Salmon Arm and then between Salmon Arm and Lake Louise area. Our itinerary permits some flexibility for this, if we choose to do it. 5 hour travel days aren't that bad if you stop occasionally, however. What is the daylight situation like in late April? Thanks

Well Whistler to Salmon Arm is only 51/2 hrs and Salmon Arm to Lake Louise is under 4 hours so not sure how short a driving day you want??? especially if you're going to make it to Portland LOL..

By late April you'll have at least 14-15 hours of daylight..plus we have long twilights here.

a good website you might want to check is www.drivebc.ca

go to other links bottom left then distance calculator...not as sophisticated as google maps etc but very reliable re: actual drive times here through the mountains etc. I have driven all the roads you're looking at many times and have found this website to be just about bang on with driving times.
