My wife and I are planning a 21 days tour of Alberta and BC this summer by MV, starting and ending in Calgary. We are both in our late 50's and in good shape for hiking but probably not fit enough for fighting off bears. :)
What would be really helpful would be (firstly) if someone in the know could make suggestions eg; you don't need quite so long there... why not visit ...since you are so close...
Secondly, we are not planning to book any campsites in advance, except perhaps for the holiday weekend (Am I right in thinking that is the first Monday in august) Think this plan will be OK?
Planned itin. (21 nights total)
Calgary hotel 1 night; Banff NP 4 nights; Jasper NP 3 nights; Wells Gray PP 1 or 2 night; Whistler 1 or 2 night; Vancouver island 4 nights; Vancouver (Where on earth can we camp here??? 3 nights; Okanagan Valley 1 or 2 nights; Yoho NP 1 or 2 nights)
We are really looking forward to seeing some of your beautiful country.) Thanks in advance to anyone who is able to help.
