I'm feeling a little rushed since everything is booking up. I want to head to the area in June.
I'm willing to splurge on 2 night at Moraine Lake Lodge given it looks like the prettiest place in the world, and I managed to do just about everything else with miles. We aren't early risers, so the idea of waking up and being there without fighting or parking sounds perfect.
We will likely spend the rest of the (4 nights?) in Banff. The itinerary is still very in the works - something like this:
1. One full day dedicated to wondering up to the ice trails and back
2. Lake Louise and/or Lake Emerald
3. Hiking/Waterfalls/Hot Springs - maybe in Yoho
4. Anything to see some animals, bears.
If I'm spending the money to stay at Moraine Lake, I'm guessing I'll really want to stick about there for those two days. But also don't want to zig zag back and forth Yoho, Banff, etc. because I didn't plan the days right. Kind of seems like Moraine Lake Lodge is in the middle of everything, so this might just be unavoidable.
Any thoughts on what to do when? Or is there a good place to see which hikes/sites are good to bundle together in the same day?
Also flexible as to whether I go to Banff first or Moraine Lake Lodge first.
