Can you please check that the things we want to see (not just drive by) on the following list are achievable in the time allocated? I have found a number of “travel time sites” which give conflicting reports. Times stated are just driving times.
We arrive in Calgary at 1:30pm we wouldn’t be able to drive that day but could take a bus at $50 pp to banff. We would then need to hire a car in Banff to go to Vancouver. Would we be better to stay overnight in Calgary and leave early in the morning with a rental car from there?
Could we go from Revelstoke to Vancouver in one day? How much is there to see that would add to the time for a straight through trip?
