Hi all - my wife and I are planning on taking our 8yo and 6yo on a family holiday in Canada (from Australia... it seemed like a good idea at the time...) around late Sept-Oct 2012. We will likely drive from Vancouver to Kamloops or Salmon Arm (or somewhere else you'd recommend?) then on to Banff, before moving on to Calgary.
This will be part of a longer holiday so we are looking at keeping an accommodation budget of around CA$200 a night for the four of us, if this is possible. We are thinking of something along the lines of camping cabins (preferably fitted out with running water, etc.) or short-term rental homes or B&Bs - no pitching tents and hotels not necessary.
Can anyone recommend any accommodation of this sort for a family of four? I am entertaining the notion of hiring a campervan (Winnebago?) but am slightly freaked out by the size/driving on the other side of the road thing along winding, mountainous highways!
Also, if you can recommend activities and must-see sights for the lil'uns, we'd be grateful. Just starting our planning as you can probably tell!!!
