We are going to spend approximately 9 days in mid July between Jasper and Banff area and I have no clear how to distribute these days. We want to do some day hikes , and since we are coming from the north-west, I’m thinking of dividing the trip in three parts:
Three complete days in Jasper area visiting Maligne Lake (Opal Hills), Sulphur Skyline hike and probably five lakes hike.
LAKE LOUISE AREA
A whole day driving the Icefields Parkway. Sleep in Lake Lousie Area or Field.
Three more days visiting Lake Louise area (any recommendation?) and Yoho. (Emerald lake or twin falls?)
Two days visiting Banff area (Johnston Canyon, any other recommendation?). Center in Banff or Canmore.
Do you think I should move one day from Jasper to any other area?
Is it possible to find accommodation in July or it would be safer to have everything booked beforehand?
