We are planning a trip this May. We will fly from New York to Calgary. We then would like to take the train to Lake Louise and stay at the Fairmont for 3-4 nights. Are Banff and Jasper close to Lake Louise (2 hour car drive)? Or do you recommend that we spend one night in Banff?
We then would like to take the train to Vancouver, where we hope to spend 3-4 nights including a trip to Victoria.
We then would fly back to New York from Vancouver.
Any thoughts, hints or changes are welcome.
Our budget for all the above is $7,000.
