After a few days in Vancouver we will pick up a hire car (4x4) on September 9th 2012 and have 10/11 days for a road trip before having to be back in Vancouver for the flight home evening of the 19th.
I am in the early stages of planning the trip, and have read various threads here. At the moment a provisional idea is this trip:
Vancouver - Kowlona
Kowlona - Banff/Lake Louise
Banff/Lake Louise - Jasper
Jasper - Prince George
Prince George - Vancouver (via highway 97)
Any advice would be appreciated - we enjoy driving but don't want to be driving all the time, so is this too ambitious? Are all the stops good ones - is it worth extending up to Prince George or should we make a more direct return from Jasper to Vancouver, but take the whole round trip at a more leisurely pace with longer at each stop?
We want to do this is a bit of comfort and don't mind spending on good hotels, so if there are specific tips for all the stops apart from Vancouver (already booked) happy to hear about those too.
